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. Through non-profit Pelagic Life he 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. As the Founder and early CEO of Pelagic Fleet, Jorge envisioned, designed, and led the refit of the Socorro Vortex, a 140ft diving vessel and one of the toughest and most ambitious luxury liveaboards out there.
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 campaigns, among many others.
As a cinematographer, Jorge recently produced and shot one of the main sequences for a new shark documentary from the producers of The March of the Penguins.
Jorge has been ambassador for Discovery, Nauticam, The Outdoor Journal, and two-time speaker at TEDx.
His most recent projects include the adventure travel firm Baja My Love and The Hydrophone, a podcast where he interviews high profile marine conservationists, photographers, filmmakers and explorers.
