German marine and nature photographer, Jurgen Freund trained as an engineer but soon realised that this was not the career he wanted. His engineering skills helped him to create special lenses and underwater gadgets making his photography innovative and unique. His photographs are used extensively by conservation agencies like WWF & Conservation International and he has authored a WWF coffee table book, Sulu Sulawesi Seas. He lived for many years in the Philippines and documented issues around whale shark fishing, see Festival

gallery in our Photo story collections. In 2003 he emigrated with his wife Stella to North Queensland, Australia, and now considers the entire Australian continent as his photographic studio.
