Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // When I was a little girl, I dreamed of one day swimming with whales. Today, I often have to pinch myself to believe that my job allows me to do just that. Traveling around the world as a working photographer, on assignment for @NatGeo is one of the best jobs in the world. Together with my partner, photographer @PaulNicklen, seen here photographing humpback whales in the #DominicanRepublic, we try to keep our lenses pointed to the species and ecosystems we love. By sharing the beauty of our planet we hope to inspire others to travel and to care. To see other places where you too can swim with whales, visit my #instagram feed at @CristinaMittermeier @natgeocreative | #underwaterphotography | #lovenature | #travel | #swimwithwhales | #dreamjob
