Jeff Foott

After working as a park ranger, mountain-climbing guide, and ski patrolman, Jeff Foott ventured back to school to study marine biology, specifically sea otters. He began taking photographs of the otters he was studying for lectures and various magazine articles, and eventually produced a film about these unique creatures. Forty-five films later, some for National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, and BBC, Foott has never lost touch with his original motivation of using photography to share with people the wonder and beauty of nature. His work has been widely published in the U.S. and internationally in National Geographic, Audubon, and National Wildlife.
