Marine Biologist & Photographer

“The only thing that can capture our imagination is the mystery.”

As a child Laurent Ballesta dreamed of an adventurous life like his big role model: Jacques Cousteau, pioneer of oceanic exploration and marine filmmaker of the first hour. A dream come true: Today Ballesta is not only a marine biologist but one of the most renowned wild life photographers worldwide. He has led numerous exploration missions and four GOMBESSA Expeditions, all marked by triple challenges of a technical, scientific and artistic nature.
