Trip thread: Wetpixel Whale Sharks 2015

01 August 2015 - 10:56 AM

Greetings from the Hotel Playa la Media Luna in Isla Mujeres, Mexico!


Welcome to the forum thread for the 2015 Wetpixel Whale sharks trips. Our first group is leaving today, and we are in the process of welcoming the group for the second trip. This topic will be the place to post images from the trip and share experiences from what is undoubtedly one of nature's great events.


Every year many whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) gather in the waters between the islands of Isla Mujeres and Contoy to feast on the eggs of the little tunny (Euthynnus alletteratusthat spawn in the sea. This gathering has been going on for a long time and it presents an amazing opportunity to see and document large numbers of whale sharks behaving entirely naturally. Wetpixel has been running trips to explore the aggregation for the past 7-8 years and we are planing out trips for 2016 already! These are typically oversubscribed, so if you are interested, please get in contact via PM or email.


Here are a few images to seed the thread!

Red and whitespotted pygmygoby?

30 June 2015 - 01:47 PM

Hi all,


I think this is a Red and Whitespotted Pygmygoby (Eviota prasites)?


The picture was taken in Komodo, Indonesia.


Any other ideas?


Many thanks as always

Why do you shoot underwater?

20 May 2015 - 12:27 PM

In a recent conversation with a friend, who is also a very talented underwater photographer, he was extolling the virtues of an arcane technique to create unique images. Upon querying his motivation for wanting to do so, he explained that it would give him a good chance of winning competitions. 


It was at that point that I realised that the motivations for shooting underwater vary widely. I have to be honest and say that my primary motivation is to generate images that I can sell to put food on my table. I do enter a few contests, and have had some great results. However my best selling image, that has made me a reasonable amount of money, has never get through the first round in any contests that I have entered it into!


So, when you are shooting, do you do so with the intention of winning contests, or of selling the image/footage? Or have I got it all wrong and the two goals are not mutually exclusive?


I would be fascinated to hear how other view this. It is a real conundrum for me!
