Caitlin Ochs is a Visual Storyteller in love with exploring the world through the edges of her viewfinder.

With an approach based on building meaningful connections with subjects, Caitlin finds joy in creating compelling, authentic visuals that inspire people to learn more about the people and places she documents.

Her editorial and commercial projects have taken her underwater, high in the air, onto snowshoes, and into the center of breaking news stories spanning protests, politics and extreme weather.

As a National Geographic Explorer and member of the Society of Environmental Journalists, she is dedicated to creating visually driven stories that illuminate connections between people and their environments.

Caitlin's photographic work is frequently included in edits of The New York Times and Reuters Pictures of the Year, and in print editions of the American Photographer. Her reporting series on the Colorado River with Buzzfeed News was a Covering Climate Now shortlisted feature finalist.
