Dan Cartamil, PhD., is an expert in shark biology at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, CA. His passion for the natural world has led him to 10 years of photographing Baja California’s untamed wilderness, particularly the Pacific coast region where he conducts research to protect migrating sharks from over-fishing. Fluent in English and Spanish, Dan has been able to dive deeply into Baja’s spectacular landscapes with the support of locals, including academic colleagues and artisanal fishermen. Dan is also an environmental consultant and avid conservationist — he lives and plays music in Encinitas, California.
