His work alongside Sea Legacy, National Geographic Pristine Seas, Ocean X and others are highly decorated and have helped influence marine protected areas around the world. His team was recently awarded the Crystal Compass Award from the Royal Geographic Society leading to the designation of the world largest Arctic National Park in Franz Josef Land, Russia.

Andy's work with dangerous sharks has put him in the world spotlight as a voice for shark conservation and seen here for Apple, Maxim Magazine, Gear Patrol, The Daily Beast and more. Andy's quest for photographing sharks has taken him to the bottom of the ocean in tiny submersibles and redefined free-diving at the surface. He recently partnered with Google Expeditions to create the first shark-tagging 360 VR classroom lesson plan and works closely with NOAA on the recovery plan for many threatened species.
