About the Creators

Karim is a professional underwater photographer and drone pilot based in Boulder, CO, and Hawaii.

As a child Karim was fascinated with flight and dreamed of flying gliders. His curiosity has led him to spend much of his time in nature, studying the way humpbacks glide effortlessly through the water, and the albatross rides the winds and air currents.
