Hi Everyone When I go on a photographic journey, I often make an eBook about the experience - how to get there, accommodation, etc as well as photos that I have taken and what I learnt. Several of these are about Dive adventures. These free PDF eBooks have been downloaded nearly 4000 times worldwide: https://photojourney.smiliemail.org/ or https://photojourney.smiliemail.org/?gallery for a quick image check to see. The eBooks are free and ad free. Just giving something back to the photo community.... Enjoy. Three of them - Christmas Island, Koh Lipe and Koh Libong - are concerned with snorkelling, with the latter two being almost exclusively concerned with underwater activities in Thailand. Cameras used were an Olympus TG-3 and TG-4. There are a number that deal with diving - a dive resort in Manado in Sulawesi, Preparing for a Dive Adventure, a dive resort in Dauin in the Philippines, and Underwater Stitching. Cameras used were an Olympus TG-5 and E-M1 in a Nauticam housing. Last two eBooks have just been released. The eBooks detail preparations such as transport, accommodation, clothing, photographic gear, etc as well as showing images from the photojourney. The main thrust behind the eBooks is to show what we learnt from the experience so that others will be better prepared. The links to the eBooks will redirect you to a fast Dropbox site. You do NOT have to make a Dropbox account to get access - it tries to persuade you to do this, but look for the "continue as guest" type link if asked. Grab the eBook if you like. I suggest that you get the _ebook PDF from Dropbox as it is a good compromise between file size and image quality. If you know of others who may be interested, then please pass on the above link (rather than just sending them direct to Dropbox) because this helps me keep track of the number of times the eBook is downloaded. Mention the photojourney site on any appropriate social media forums you enjoy. People are often on the lookout for new places to go, and these eBooks can help. Stay safe whilst COVID-19 causes problems. Browse the eBooks until you can browse the depths.... Enjoy!
I have 1 remaining space on a small group photo trip to La Paz, Mexico in November 19 - 24, 2019. I have a private panga (limited to 4 divers) reserved for 3 days (November 20, 21, & 22) of diving and we will do 1 day of whale shark snorkeling (November 22). Fall is the best time of year for photographing the sea lions at the famous Los Islotes Sea Lion Colony so we will plan to do that for a majority of the dives. Los Islotes (and other dive sites) also have great macro subjects including blennies, jawfish, and nudibranchs. Since I have reserved a private panga we have flexibility to go where the group wants to go. La Paz is somewhat difficult to fly to from outside of Mexico but others coming on this trip are flying to/from Cabo San Lucas so that is an option. Here is a blog I wrote after a trip I took to La Paz last December: https://www.jonandersonphoto.com/Blog/La-Paz Here are some examples of subject we might see: https://www.jonandersonphoto.com/LA-PAZ Send me a message if you are interested in the trip details and cost. Thanks, Jon Anderson
I am looking to organize a special trip to swim and photograph some of the most majestic creatures on the planet, the humpback whale. I am looking to go in 2017 during the peak of the humpback migration where thousands of Southern Hemisphere Humpbacks migrate from Antarctica to the warmer waters of Tonga. The sheltered bays and inlets around Tonga provide the perfect nursery for mothers to teach their calves all about being a whale! Ive personally observed many humpbacks around Oahu and off the coast of Maui and Im completely blown away by their size! Its a magical experience to be in their presence. Tonga is one of the few places in the World that allows people to legally get in the water with these gentle giants. Swimming with humpbacks is a privilege and we must not forget that heavy regulations and laws have allowed people this amazing opportunity. We must respect the laws and obey them. Spaces will be very limited, and only a small group will be allowed in order to maximize everyones water time. Who would like to join me on this once in a life time adventure? For dates and prices please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or message if you are interested! Spots are very limited! Once in a life time opportunity!
