Naturalist and cinematographer, John Anderson began photographing ocean wildlife in his teens. Since the seventies his fascination for capturing imagery depicting creatures and events of the natural world has grown exponentially. He has spent thousands of hours, above and under the ocean, around the world shooting in multiple formats of motion picture film, video and still photographs. Four decades behind the lens has produced an extensive media library of video clips and still photographs encompassing hundreds of subjects.
In 2001, he launched Terramar Productions LLC, to focus his talents on creating terrestrial and marine-related environmental films, DVDs and fine art photography. With a healthy knowledge and respect for environmental issues, he spends significant time each year focusing his talents on the creation and delivery of media to educational and scientific organizations that foster marine and terrestrial, environmental stewards. Affiliations include the Dolphin Communication Project and the scientific periodical Aquatic Mammals Journal. Anderson is currently shooting an ongoing series of international interviews in High Definition, with senior marine mammal scientists and trainers. To date, forty interviews have been shot and produced into DVD¹s.
Through a sister organization, Terramar Communications, Anderson continues to produce industrial media for government, military and business clients.
Anderson also has numerous Hollywood feature films to his crew credit.
