Art of Capturing a Heat Run awarded at Natures Best, Windland Smith Rice International Awards 2018

The Art of Capturing a Heat Run” has been selected as Highly Honored at the prestigious Natures Best, Windland Smith Rice International Awards 2018. This impressive display from multiple humpback whales in a competitive group, filmed from above and below the surface was a dynamic sequence to document. I jumped in the water over 20 times while being witness to some of the most powerful creatures in the animal world. truly an honour to be recognised at such a prestigious awards event.

Kicking off the season

As the season kicks off we are seeing some interesting behaviour from some young juvenile whales, this whale we had to nickname the crazy whale on account of it always making a B-line for us in the water. things can be unpredictable sometimes and we are dealing with wild animals with big bodies and big personalities. Lets hope the excitement continues this week.
