Seth Casteel is an award-winning photographer and New York Times Best Selling Author. His series of Underwater Dogs photographs have been seen by hundreds of millions of people around the world and have become one of the most famous series of images in the past decade.

"I just really like dogs. They inspire me. I wish I could be a dog, but I can't, so I will do my best to live like one. "

In 2007, Seth began volunteering to photograph homeless pets to help them find loving families. These improved photos showcased unique personalities, resulting in countless adoptions. One day, someone asked if they could commission Seth to photograph their dog. A photo from this photo shoot was chosen to be on the cover of a popular pet magazine, which sparked a career as a pet photographer.

Since then, Seth's work has been published in National Geographic, The New York Times and in hundreds of other magazines, newspapers and calendars. He has travelled the world in pursuit of his passion, working with animals on five continents.

Seth lives and works in Chicago and Los Angeles.
