My name is Alejandra Potter and I was born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1990.
I got a degree in Audiovisual Communication at the university of Blanquerna Ramon Llull, in Barcelona.
I speak, read and write fluently in English, French, Spanish and Catalan.
I then joined the NGO Sea Shepherd Global, filming the TV show 'Ocean Warriors' featured on Discovery Channel, footage that was then used to create the award winning documentary "Chasing The Thunder". I have worked with the organization on and off ever since, documenting the actions on board their ships during different campaigns aimed to protect marine life, and being part of their social media strategies.
I have been passionate about nature and wildlife since I was a couple of feet tall. I grew up watching nature documentaries and eventually I figured that if I had grown to appreciate nature so much through a screen, so could other people. I believe learning more about the natural world is key to motivate the desire to protect it.
I decided to pick up a camera and find ways to bring environmental stories closer to the public.

"I am quite impressed with her work. She sees and works photo-journalistically, she is able to see and make images, think narratively, and has an innate talent for photojournalism. I've seen a lot of work come off of these ships from people trying to document the chase and capture with these illegal fisheries, and this is by far the best work that I have seen." - Kathy Moran, National Geographic
