Light on the water

get more from BRO

Creighton Cutts loves water. He started The Dolphin Project in the 1980s, worked with sperm whales and sea turtles in the 1990s, and has volunteered with various Riverkeepers for nearly two decades.

Creighton is also a candle maker. As the founder of Bee Natural, he hand-carves and presses 100% natural beeswax into luminaries.

Fire and water usually don’t mix. But Creighton found a way to combine his passion for protecting rivers with his day job.

Creighton is traveling to every major river in the Southeast to shoot photos of his candles on the water. He donates the photos to the local Riverkeeper, and for every candle he sells from that watershed, he donates 25% of the profits to the local Riverkeeper.

His floatoshoot tour will be headed to the Nantahala River and French Broad River on November 12-13. View images from previous floatoshoots and follow the floatoshoot tour here.
