Underwater photographer, award-winning film producer and ecotourism activist, Jorge has been sharing his love for the ocean and its creatures for the past decade. Through non-profit Pelagic Life 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 Mexico Pelágico. Through his company, Pelagic Fleet, Jorge sits in the Advisory Board of the Revillagigedo National Park, the Guadalupe Island Biosphere Reserve, and designed the Socorro Vortex, a 140ft diving liveaboard that together with the Solmar V take over 1,300 people to dive in ocean hope spots every year.
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 Jorge captures in his breathtaking photographs. His work has been featured by National Geographic, Wired, Ocean Geographic, Apple, and Samsung, among many others.
Jorge has been ambassador for Discovery, Nauticam, The Outdoor Journal, and two-time speaker at TEDx.
