Patrick Rynne, Fiona Graham, Jennah Caster and Laura Graham are ocean scientists and adventurers at Waterlust (@waterlust), a purpose-driven company that travels the world to create films about water. Recognizing a shared passion for sea-based adventure, marine science, and a love for all things water, Sperry has partnered with Waterlust to explore and embark on new Odysseys around the world.
The following is a message from Patrick and the Waterlust team:
I don’t think any of us anticipated that Waterlust would take off. At first it was just a side project we started while in grad school. Over time we learned more and more about filmmaking and photography and used them as tools to get people engaged about the environmental issues that surround our oceans and waterways. Since we started in 2011, we’ve made over 50 short films in places like Australia, Hawaii, the Bahamas, Alaska, Trinidad and Tobago, Cuba, Turks and Caicos, Italy, Peru, Iceland, and Siberia. Wherever we go, we try and explore the relationship between people and water and have found that despite our cultural difference, that connection is pretty universal. We’ve been incredibly stoked to partner with Sperry on these odysseys and celebrate our mutual love for adventure on the sea. We’ve got some exciting adventures coming that we can’t wait to share with you!
