Maui Visitors

Visiting Maui in the near future? If so, you’re in for a treat – these big guys, the humpback whales have just started returning for their ‘fun in the sun’. Researchers at the Pacific Whale […]


Humpback Fluke – Head On

I have a lot of popular shots of humpback whales diving, usually from behind (see Humpback Dive for example) but rarely do I get the opportunity of photographing one full frame from directly in front of […]


Humpback Surprise

Orca weren’t the only surprise visitors to the Khutzeymateen back in August (see ‘Surprise Visitors’), we also had a visit from a humpback whale on a couple of occasions too. Unlike the orca, the whales […]

Bubble Netters II

  I first published a shot from this very special event back in the summer of 2014, not long after I had been fortunate to witness it. Bubble net feeding humpbacks only come together and do […]


First Pec of the Year

  This is the ‘tiny’ right pectoral fin of a newborn Humpback Whale calf, photographed last week down in Mexico and you can also see it’s body pleats and the tip of the head is […]
