Whatever you dream to do, begin it — boldness has genius, power and magic in it!
Big Animals Expeditions is an exclusive adventure company led by world-renowned photographer Amos Nachoum. Every year, he interacts with the most exciting animals on the planet — great white sharks, polar bears, blue whales, mountain gorillas, elephants, lions, cheetahs, striped marlins, sailfish, anacondas, pink dolphins, snow leopards, and more — and Amos helps you capture their true essence in the most spectacular wildlife photographs you’ll ever take.
When you come on one of our voyages, you’ll be joining a small, elite group of bold individuals who insist on experiencing the natural world in its most pure and uncompromising state — which is a good thing, because it’s a lot more fun that way.
Amos carefully plans each trip around the way each animal lives with the utmost respect for their needs. With his own unique sense of mission and all the expertise, humor, and undaunted passion one needs, Amos leads four people at a time on the most exhilarating journey of their lives.
With as much luxury and comfort as we can give you without jeopardizing your safety or that of the animals — you will be provided with all the guidance you need to rise above yourself in every way. Your life will be transformed — while the lives of the magnificent creatures you’ve come to know will experience no human impact at all.

San Diego Coast, USA
Snorkeling photography encounter with the biggest whale of them all. Only four guests are allowed on this trip to provide each guest with sufficient time in the water in the most environmentally-friendly manner possible. Exactly what you'd expect from the only company willing to go to such (whale-size) lengths on behalf of its guests.
In pursuit of the most elusive experience of your life. Trek across one of the world’s last truly wild places in search of an animal nobody you know has ever seen: the magnificently elusive snow leopard.
Punta Norte, Argentina
Photographing the unique stranding behavior of Patagonian Orcas in an internationally protected, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Big Animals Expeditions has secured special permission to get close enough to the beach for some spectacular photography of this dramatic orca feeding behavior.
North Sea, Norway
Exciting Norwegian orca diving expedition featuring snorkeling, scuba diving, and underwater photography. On this expedition, two divers at a time slip quietly into the water, snorkeling and free-diving, to mingle with the pod as they feed, play, and jump out of the water. It doesn't take orcas long to realize we're no threat, and they just keep doing their orca thing, which includes swimming quite close to divers because they're just as curious as we are.
High Artic, Canada
As a travel adventurer, the arctic will move you in ways you've never imagined. Big Animal Expeditions makes a second trip each year to this part of the world, because June is the best time to see narwhals.
Amos Nachoum is a photographer and explorer. He has shot just about everything there is to shoot, but what he loves most is wildlife photography. Especially if it’s in the water. And he has become world-famous at it. So much so, in fact, that he has been asked to lead National Geographic expedition teams with Dr. Eugenie Clark, Dr. Sylvia Earle, and astronaut Buzz Aldrin. He has co-produced documentaries with Stan Waterman, and he was the team leader for National Geographic’s Red Sea, Great White Shark, and Killer Whale photo expeditions.
His commitment to wildlife led him to co-found Israel’s Marine National Park on the Red Sea. He works tirelessly to bring attention to some of the most fragile regions of the underwater realm, with preservation of the environment foremost in every encounter.
Amos’s photos and essays have appeared in hundreds of publications around the globe, including National Geographic, Time, Life, The New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler, Le Figaro, Terra Sauvage, Airone, Mondo Somerso, Der Spiegel, Unterwasser, and many more.
His work has also been included in the books The Living Ocean, The World of Nature, and Oceans. He has been profiled in television appearances on National Geographic Explorer, Today, and Good Morning America, as well as featured in People, Esquire, and Money magazines.
Amos’s photography has won Nikon, Communication Arts, and BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards. His clients include Apple, IBM, Microsoft, Discovery Channel, Armani, Disney, and Colombia Pictures.
