Nature photographer Justin Gilligan

Hear Justin Gilligan discuss his career combining photojournalism and marine science

With an honours degree in marine science and a passion for the environment, Justin Gilligan has gotten up close and personal with many extraordinary creatures. An award-winning wildlife photographer, Justin’s work explores the role photographers can play in conservation, research and education.

Justin’s photography has not only taken him to some of the Australia’s most remote coral reef locations, including Lord Howe, Christmas and Cocos (Keeling) Islands, but has appeared in a multitude of magazines and publications, including Australian Geographic, BBC Wildlife, New Scientist and more.

As well as being a finalist in this year’s Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year, Justin was a category winner in the 2017 Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year (UK) and the recipient of the Save Our Seas Foundation’s Marine Conservation Photography Grant.
