As an award-winning wildlife photographer and adventurer, Mick Fogg has spent the past 17 years leading expeditions and photographing some of the world’s most remote and spectacular destinations from Antarctica to South East Asia.
Mick has designed itineraries and led expeditions through the Sub Antarctic Islands, New Zealand, Australia, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Since obtaining an honours degree in Marine Biology from James Cook University, Mick has been able to combine his passion for exploration and travel with a desire to educate people about the myriad of wonders that abound in nature’s richest realms.
More recently Mick has developed a keen interest in the history and biodiversity contained within the Old World tropics of South East Asia.
Having witnessed the destruction of the rain forests and the plight of the Orang-Utan in Borneo first hand, Mick began a journey to empower people to address these issues and bring hope to the future.
In 2012, Mick was rewarded for his conservation work in Indonesia by being appointed the first Ambassador of Orangutan Foundation International (Australia).
Mick currently runs Wallacea Expeditions, providing expedition services to international companies as well as leading small boutique expeditions throughout some of the most remote parts of the planet.
When not exploring the planet, Mick spends his time with his two greatest loves – his wife, Karina and their son, Harrison.
