Jean Tresfon is a marine conservation photographer specialising in underwater and aerial images. He lives in Cape Town and his passion lies in showcasing both his city and his country as a superb photographic destination for capturing alluring and unusual wildlife images. His initial foray into underwater photography was a natural extension of his many years spent diving and the frustration experienced in trying to explain the wonders of the underwater world to his surface dwelling acquaintances.

It is Jean’s belief that the official lack of protection for many of our underwater ecosystems stems from their very inaccessibility and an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality. Now he hopes that his images will inspire more people to both visit and conserve these beautiful places and their inhabitants.
