Ambassador of the marine environment, photographer, adventurer, diver and educator, Ernest H. Brooks II was born to be a photographer. As the son of Ernest H. Brooks, founder of the internationally renowned Brooks Institute of Photography, Ernie Brooks was destined to follow in his father’s footsteps for part of his life’s journey before forging his own path. Throughout his long tenure as the head of Brooks Institute, he carried out the duties that come with that corporate territory, including keynote speaking at international conventions, working with national and international organizations and companies to enhance the industry, encouraging photographic education, and promoting photography as a universal language.

​As a noted professional photographer, Brooks has won international acclaim for underwater photography and audio/visual presentation. In his pursuit of dramatic marine images, he has descended into the treacherous waters beneath the polar icecaps and into the depths of almost every ocean on Earth. His work has been exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Smithsonian Institution, and the International Photography Hall of Fame, among others. He is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, is one of 40 photographers in the world admitted to the prestigious Camera Craftsmen of America, and the recipient of many awards and honors.
