Real Life Scientists
They’d made a career choice that had nothing to do with money and everything to do with the fact that they’d never lost the child’s sense of amazement about nature. It was as though the “career goal” entry on their resumes read: “To stay as far away from an office cubicle as humanly possible.” - Susan Casey
Working alongside scientists for the better part of a decade, I have come to recognize the value of capturing not just the intricate details of experiments and data collection, but the people behind them — their motivations, imperfections, and charisma. They are marine biologists, oceanographers, geophysicists, and engineers. But they are also students, teachers, husbands, wives, and parents. They are young people trying to find their calling in life. They are leaders working to inspire a new generation. They are artists, comedians, musicians, introverts, and adventurers. They are real people.
