Richard Vevers is the Founder and CEO of The Ocean Agency. He is the pioneer of underwater 360-degree photography, inventing the cameras that took Google Street View underwater. Working with leading scientists, he is responsible for creating the only comprehensive virtual reality record of the ocean with over a million images taken in nearly 30 countries, including the most comprehensive underwater survey of coral reefs ever conducted. Vevers’ success in visually documenting and revealing the 3rd Global Coral Bleaching Event, the longest and most devastating event to impact coral reefs ever recorded, became the subject of a Netflix Original Documentary, Chasing Coral. Drawing on over a decade of experience at top London advertising agencies, Vevers’ work is a blend of cutting-edge technology, unconventional partnerships, and savvy communications. His not-for-profit agency is certainly unconventional – it’s committed to creating a new, more effective era of ocean conservation.
