Born and raised in Fredericton, Hawkins developed a love of wildlife and the natural world at a young age. Long before he fit in waders, Hawkins was a keen salmon angler, often accompanying his father on paddling and fishing trips.
After completing an undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of New Brunswick, Hawkins embarked on a career in wildlife photojournalism. He is an expert in camera trapping, aerial photography, as well as underwater photography and videography. As he puts it, “My ultimate goal, whether through photography or film, is to bring unique stories of the natural world to audiences worldwide while promoting the conservation of the species and ecosystems upon which we all rely.”
He’s come face to face with jaguars, 50-ton whales, Great White sharks, and grizzly bears in Alaska. All his far-ranging work is driven by a deep connection to wild Atlantic salmon. At the St. Andrews Dinner, Hawkins will describe how a childhood on the Miramichi inspired his career in visual storytelling.
