I recently chatted with award-winning underwater photojournalist Brian Skerry for the latest edition of the Naked Oceans podcast (which looks at Art and the Oceans). His pictures have appeared in National Geographic Magazine since 1998 and having spent more than 10,000 hours underwater he had heaps of amazing stories and excellent advice to share. But with only a half-hour podcast to fill (and two other great guests to fit in), a lot of the interview ended up on the cutting room floor.
Here’s one of my favourite bits that didn’t make it into the podcast: I ask Brian to pick his top moment underwater and he told a wonderful story about meeting a curious Southern right whale.
