Tim has spent the last few years traveling and diving in some of the harshest ocean conditions to document the work of the conservation group Sea Shepherd Society. Based on his work in Antarctica, Tim was recently awarded the 2014 New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year Award in the "Photostory" category. His submissions for this great honor documented opposition to the illegal whaling activities that occur over the months of November through March.
