I am not a good enough swimmer to even contemplate photographing orcas underwater, but even if I was, I doubt I would be any good at this genre of photography. In fact, to be entirely candid, I would be dreadful.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In the meantime, I have huge respect for @paulnicklen whose portfolio of underwater work with orcas shows a constant commitment to the pursuit of excellence. He is in a league of his own.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The problem of photographing orcas on the surface from a boat is simply the angle of view - which is normally down and therefore not ideal . The further away , the less the issue , but we want to be quite close - which from a regulation perspective points to Norway .

These last few days in the arctic fjords of northern Norway, I have been trying some new methods of getting low. None of them are perfect and they require a great captain to find the balance between safety and opportunity. This relationship between the crew and the film team is critical - there needs to be trust both ways
The low winter light this morning was perfect and there was enough swell for the cameras to almost be at surface level at certain moments. Then it is all down to luck and quick reactions. It is one of nature’s great offerings to see a big bull orca swimming at speed towards the camera.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I think that this is about as hard as any work we do. It’s full on .

Great photo. 💙Would love to visit Norway someday and watch these orcas. Would be interesting to see how we they differ from the orcas around Vancouver Island. Beautiful, beautiful animals. 👍🏻
