Today was an eye opener for me, as a partner in this company I deal with office operations, photo editing, answering the phone, you know the routine stuff. I had the opportunity to go on a whale wildlife tour as the photographer, with my partner and 4 guests. Wow! So much respect for the profession. Imagine what your guide has to deal with on a tour, knowledgable in wildlife, history of the area, operating the boat, finding wildlife, answering many questions, ensuring guests are comfortable and safe, maintaining your required tickets to run a boat, take photo’s if there is an opportunity and run the boat safely while bobbing in the ocean swells! There have been many occasions when my partner has returned from a spectacular tour full of incredible sightings but no photo’s. Taking photo’s is no easy task while bobbing in the swells, I took over 300 and only half a dozen are worth keeping. Kudos to all Guides.

Spring has arrived, or has it! Mother nature is consistent in the return of abundant wildlife to our coast, the weather is another issue..rain, hail, sun, snow.
