National Geographic photographer and marine biologist, Thomas Peschak, has shared some imagery and video captured while he traveled to the remote atolls of Bassas de India and Europa, halfway between Mozambique and Madagascar. Cinematographer Dan Beecham and writer Sunnye Collins compiled a behind the scenes video of Peschak and his process in this “holy grail” of the ocean world.

In Peschak’s own words:
