Joakim Odelberg, LUMIX Ambassador, one of Sweden’s premier marine ambassadors, environmental influencers, TV-profiles and critically acclaimed conservation land based and underwater photographers. Joakim has been working intensively with marine environmental issues since 2007, raising awareness for how critically in danger our source of life on earth is – the oceans.

In 2017, Joakim represented Sweden through exhibiting his installation at the UN building in New York during the internationally attended Ocean Conference, and until very recently he hosted the very popular and highly regarded nature documentary series “Mitt i naturen” on swedish pubcaster SVT.
