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.
