Brian Hall

Brian is a documentary filmmaker and photographer dedicated to increasing social awareness about environmental issues that are facing the world today. Through the medium of film and the latest digital technologies, Brian strives to create compelling, thought provoking images that will help drive the social conversation and instill a conservation ethic.

Brian graduated with a B.S. in Marine Biology and a minor in Oceanography from the University of New Hampshire. He then studied whales in the field with renowned biologist Roger Payne and the organization Ocean Alliance. Through his work in the field, Brian realized the importance of conveying the discoveries and issues that scientists were uncovering to the public to help promote awareness and better decision-making. He left field research and began freelancing for documentary photography and video projects that worked towards this goal. He has covered stories for the New York Times, and Smithsonian among other notable publications and worked with Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society team on filming and post production for the Ocean Adventures series with PBS that aired 11 hours of programs from 2006 through 2009.
