Rob Stewart on Wetpixel

After an intensive search, Rob Stewart’s body was found by an ROV close to the wreck that he and his team was diving on late on Friday afternoon. The Wetpixel communities hearts are heavy today and our thoughts and prayers go out to his many friends and family.

Rob, 37, was an ocean activist, filmmaker and shark conservationist who set out to change the way the world thinks about sharks.

When you’re underwater and you see the thing you been taught your whole life to fear. And it doesn’t want to hurt you. And it’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen

He was passionate about the ocean and devoted his life to sharing its wonder. We will miss him.
