JUAN OLIPHANT

Underwater Photographer

Passionate about shark conservation, photography, & marine life. Living everyday to the fullest at home in Hawaii & on my international travels.

Along with the non-profit conservation group, Water Inspired, Juan and his team are on the front lines of shark conservation on a daily basis. Some days, it involves changing a tourist’s perspective of sharks just by spending some time in the water, without a cage. Other days, Juan teams up with marine researchers to tag and document specimens as part of local surveys. One thing’s for certain: The waters off of Oahu might be the best shark interaction opportunity you’ve never heard of. Juan’s pictures speak to that.
