  1. These are a couple of my favourite images i took of this years Humpback Whales in Tonga. If you would like to see some more just head over to my page: www.facebook.com/GrantThomasPhotos/
  2. Professional marine life photographer and naturalist Doug Perrine will be the guide / naturalist / photo pro for an expedition to swim with humpback whales in the Kingdom of Tonga, September 11-20, 2017. This is the breeding season for southern hemisphere humpbacks, and we can expect encounters with mothers and calves. Full trip details can be found at: http://www.oceanicsociety.org/expeditions/tonga-snorkeling-with-humpback-whales--72 All whale encounters will be conducted under permit and within Tongan law. Doug will share insights on the lives of whales gained over many years of assisting with whale research in Hawaii, and photographing whales around the world. He will also be available for personal photo help. Doug's photography has been published in magazines worldwide, including National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Time, and hundreds of others. He is the author of seven books about marine life.
  3. Information for 2016/2017 season and 2015 season report. 2015 was an incredible wildlife year for us in the Hebrides, with over 700 basking shark sightings along with 1000's of dolphins (commons/bottlenose/white-beaked) 100's of minke whale & porpoises and of course the grey & harbour have been very playful in excellent visibility. We even had a leatherback turtle which was a first for us and very exciting along with a handful of oceanic sunfish over the season. In addition we had regular white tailed eagle sightings, and a wealth of seabirds including our regular puffin trips, gannets, fulmars, manx shearwaters, terns guillemots, razorbills etc etc. Our diving has also been going well with us continuing with our black water night diving and floodlit dives, both of which providing excellent results. This is addition to the excellent muck and nudibranch diving, stunning temperature reefs and plentiful wrecks in the area. Our basking shark weeks which are geared towards enthusiasts are full for 2016 but we do have spaces for 2017, however generally our three day trips which include basking sharks, seals, evening dive, puffins, fingals cave and whale & dolphins are good for a quick photo tour. Please have a look at our excellent film cut by our head guide Luke Saddler and filmed by Luke and I over the season. https://youtu.be/GKpn0qLJaWM In addition to our Hebrides tours, our other cold water wildlife spectacular had also had incredible results. Our tours to the Arctic Circle for the orca migration was hugely successful this year. Along with the hundreds of orca we also had spectacular encounters with humpback and fin whales in the water. In addition to wonderful surface light and behaviours such as lunge feeding humpbacks and spy-hopping orca next to the boat! We are running three weeks next year with specific logistics for free-divers and photographers. Again please have a look at our video from the trip for an example of some of the encounters. https://youtu.be/S8WQdefImIg For details on all of these encounters please see www.baskingsharkscotland.co.uk and feel free to contact us directly for any questions you might have.

  4. So I went on my dream trip last year with my mother to snorkel with the Humpbacks. It the first time for both of to be snorkeling, let alone with whales so we decided to take it easy on get cheaper camera equipment. I got a Lumix underwater camera for both of us. Mine ended up malfunctioning on the 2nd day. Thankfully my mother's did not so I was able to get some decent shots. We are planning on going back in 2017. As for the pictures themselves, well... I'm not very pleased with them. I wasn't expecting spectacular quality, but not one of the best shots that I got prints well. I know with photography, you get what you pay for so I'm looking to get some guidance on what kind of cameras I should look into for my next trip as well as what I can do technique wise to get better shots. I'm assuming a DSLR would be my best bet? What about filters, are any type of filters recommended? Lastly, what settings should I shoot in? Here are a few pics from my trip last year. I'm not happy with the "noise" in the water, but I'm sure the camera I used has something to do with it. I think with a better camera it likely would've been a lot better. I should note that we did have pretty murky water so maybe there's not much that could've been done? I just don't know... The last pic with mom under her pec fin is my favorite from the whole trip and it looks horrible printed.
  5. Hi everyone, here's a post about the video that was on the front page recently. Shot in Ha'apai, Tonga with and Epic, GH4 and a GoPro 3+ Black. It was so much fun and the edit was done whilst still on the trip, so before I put it out in 4k I will likely re-compose it. Thanks for viewing:
