Sir David Attenborough about Joakim Odelberg
It all started when Joakim had his first dive experience with a manta ray in Thailand, ” It was one of, if not the best experience I ever had, 45 lovely minutes with these gentle giants”, said Joakim. That 45 minute dive completely changed Joakim’s life and relationship to the ocean.
Today Joakim is one of the most contracted and respected photographers/ filmers/ underwater filmmakers in Sweden.
His devotion to nature both on land and in the sea has reached beyond Swedish borders.
He’s also frequently booked for lecturers both in Sweden and internationally.
