About the Author

Robert Stewart

ROBERT STEWART, born in Toronto, Canada, is an award-winning wildlife photographer and the director of Sharkwater. Stewart began photographing underwater when he was 13. He became a certified scuba instructor trainer at age 18, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Western Ontario. He has also studied marine biology and zoology at universities in Kenya and Jamaica. Stewart spent four years travelling the world as the chief photographer for the Canadian Wildlife Federation magazines, and has logged thousands of hours underwater, using the latest in rebreather and camera technologies. His work underwater and on land has appeared in nearly every media form worldwide: from BBC Wildlife, Asian Diver, Outpost and GEO magazines to the Discovery Channel, ABC, BBC, night clubs and feature films. In one of several trips to the Galápagos Islands, after encountering shark “long-lining,” an indiscriminate and wasteful practice, Stewart decided to make a movie. Seeking support from private investors, he rented high-end HD video cameras and embarked on a five-year, fifteen-country odyssey to make Sharkwater.
