Feodor Pitcairn (born July 13, 1934) is an American photographer, cinematographer, naturalist, environmentalist, and ocean conservation advocate.
Photographing nature since his teens, Feodor Pitcairn was deeply influenced by a trip to Africa in 1951. Pitcairn was a pioneer in the use of digital cameras for underwater cinematography. He was the photographer for a series of five documentaries “Ocean Wilds” (2001) which aired on The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). Pitcairn is noted for his HD film Ocean Odyssey, commissioned for the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., projected onto eight screens surrounding Sant Ocean Hall from 2008 to 2016. Pitcairn’s photographs from his published work Primordial Landscapes: Iceland Revealed were featured in a major installation at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History lasting two years. This exhibit focusing on Iceland was in connection with the U.S. taking on the role of chair in the Arctic Council, an international effort addressing issues of the region.
