David Herasimtschuk

Wildlife Photographer/Cinematographer
Growing up beside a river, in Colorado, USA, David Herasimtschuk perfected the art of toad-catching and river-swimming at an early age. Days on the river consisted of rafting, swimming and searching for amphibians, snakes and fish. Fortunately, life has changed very little. The main difference now is his camera. Over the years, his love of rivers has turned into a passion to help conserve them and the animals that live in them. Trained as a freshwater ecologist, much of his work focuses on creating imagery that promotes a greater appreciation of aquatic ecosystems and supports actions to help keep them free and wild. He works with Freshwaters Illustrated, a non-profit that uses film and photography to communicate the connection we all share to these wild environments and to inspire others to get out and explore their local streams and rivers.
