Matt Ferraro has been part of the Cousteau team for the last 15 years. From the tannin brown waters of the Amazon to the crystal blue below Arctic ice, Matt has documented stunning wildlife behavior and the Cousteau team in every corner of the Earth. Matt’s camera experience is as diverse as his travels.

Matt cut his teeth on Motion Picture film, progressed through all professional video formats and is an expert with the latest digital cinema cameras. Matt’s long list of credits includes the award winning 11 hour seven-episode PBS series Ocean Adventures and the record breaking Mission 31.

As a deep tech and closed circuit rebreather diver, Matt documented the rarely visited wreck of the USS Monitor, was the part of the first team in 19 years to touch down on Cordell Bank and recorded the twilight reefs of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. While continuing production work and his passion for ocean conservation, Matt is currently employing his hard won skills directing independent documentaries and at Backscatter Underwater Video & Photo as the Cinematographer at Large.
