BIO  Kate Westaway

Since graduating from Falmouth College of Art in 2000 Kate Westaway has travelled the globe photographing marine life and has developed an extensive underwater portraiture portfolio. Her work has been published all over the world, including in Time Magazine. In 2009 she was shortlisted for the prestigious Terry O'Neill Award, leading to the production of her book Wildlife Monographs: Humpback Whales, which recorded her experience in the Atlantic Ocean photographing a humpback whale mother and calf. 


Alongside her underwater photography, she has also built a successful career in TV and film, including working in some of the world’s most hostile places with Bear Grylls for Man vs Wild and working in the watery depths with Jeremy Wade for River Monsters.
