Underwater photographer, award-winning film producer, and eco-tourism activist, Jorge has been sharing his love for the ocean and its creatures for the past decade. He has worked hand in hand with fishing communities in Baja to develop open ocean tourism as an alternative to fishing and produced the award-winning documentary film México Pelágico. Jorge founded a major liveaboard and ocean safari operation where he also envisioned & designed one of the top liveaboard vessels in the world.
As an underwater photographer, Jorge has documented unique, never before seen marine behavior. Swimming along orcas while they hunt pelagic rays in the Sea of Cortez, lurking amongst crocodiles and anacondas alike, or freediving with great white sharks in Guadalupe Island are only some of the moments that JCH captures in his images. His work has been featured by National Geographic, Wired, Ocean Geographic, Apple and Samsung campaigns, among many others.
JCH has been an ambassador for Discovery, Nauticam, The Outdoor Journal, Blancpain, and a two-time speaker at TEDx. Founding Board member when the Revillagigedo National Park was created in 2017 and a former Advisory Board member at the Guadalupe Island Biosphere Reserve.
His most recent projects include the adventure travel firm Baja My Love and The Hydrophone, a 10-episode limited podcast produced during the COVID-19 Pandemic, where Jorge chats with award-winning cinematographers, conservationists, and other relevant figures of the ocean world.
