Jasmine Carey

Photographer/Platform Support

Many many moons ago, Jasmineā€™s photographic journey stemmed from her love of scuba diving, being in the ocean, and meeting all the oceanā€™s amazing creatures. It grew immensely and with intensity when she was introduced to humpback whales in 2014.  

Jasmineā€™s images of the underwater world have since been recognised and featured in media worldwide, and she was celebrated as the recipient of the prestigious HIPA Grand Prize in 2020 with her humpback whale image “Essence of Life”.

Jasmine has also been involved behind the scenes in delivering a number of photographic, film, and education projects.
