David Herasimtschuk

David Herasimtschuk is an award-winning natural history photographer, cinematographer, editor and director. Often donning a mask and snorkel to access his subjects, Herasimtschuk’s passion lies in producing imagery that fosters a greater appreciation for life beneath the surface of our rivers and streams. By working with Freshwaters Illustrated, a nonprofit that uses film and photography to create awareness of freshwater conservation issues, Herasimtschuk aims to create imagery that not only captures the public’s imagination, but also helps motivate a new discourse in the way we value rivers. He has traveled the world to document biological research and conservation, and his images have been published in National Geographic, BBC World, National Wildlife, High Country News, Biographic, National Parks, and many others. He has a degree in wildlife and fishery biology from Colorado State University and is the director of March of the Newts (Mountainfilm 2019), and Judy's Creek - Discovering the Secret Life of the Streambed (Mountainfilm 2024).
