Henley Spiers

Country: United Kingdom 🇬🇧

Henley Spiers is an underwater photographer, writer, and expedition leader, passionately driven by aquatic wildlife and habitats. His imagery consistently garners high acclaim and has been awarded in the most prestigious photographic competitions, including the Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Nature Photographer of the Year, Siena International Photo Awards, Underwater Photographer of the Year and Ocean Photographer of the Year. Henley is author of two books and writes regularly for a broad list of publications, including Oceanographic, Coast, Hakai, and Plongez! magazines.

Prior to underwater photography, Henley had a career as a dive instructor, working in Indonesia, the Philippines and Saint Lucia.

Half-French and half-British, he lives in Devon, U.K., with wife and frequent co-collaborator Jade, and their two young daughters.
