I had the privelege to go out to Tatoosh Island off the coast of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington this summer for four days. Tatoosh Island is part of the Makah Tribe and is off limits to the public. Cathy Pfister and Timothy Wootton, both biology professors at the University of Chicago, have spent years studying the effects of ocean acidification on the intertidal zones around the island. Having grown up in the midwest, spending time on the coast and exploring the island was pretty exciting for me. It was incredibly beautiful and the environment was always changing throughout the day as the tides came in and out. Below is a selection of images from the shoot.
