Jeff Hutchens, the son of an American diplomat, spent his childhood throughout the U.S. and across China, South Africa, and the Philippines. He has shot professionally on six continents, where he’s faced grizzly bears, lava floes, Komodo Dragons, and all manner of corrupt officials. From work on the surreality of life in China, to documenting underground epidemics in the jungles of central Africa, and photographing polar bears in the Arctic Circle, he captures images that convey transcendent moods and subtle beauty.
Additionally, Jeff is the host of a six-part travel/adventure series airing on the National Geographic Channel. The show follows him and his filmmaker brother as they document far-flung regions of China through their respective lenses. He is based in Washington, DC.
