My Whale Photography Experience

There is not too much in the wildlife world more exhilarating than a whale breaching near the boat you are photographing from. I was thrilled to capture a humpback whale photo of it breaching in front of mountains in Alaska. Although I was also able to capture some Orca Whale photos from the shore of the large whale pods heading north, the experience from the boat is hard to beat.

Facts About Whales

The whale is any of the larger species of aquatic mammals belonging to the order Cetacea. Whales are the heaviest known animals. The blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) can weigh up to 200 metric tons and can attain a length of more than 98 feet. Whales must surface regularly to breathe, evacuating their lungs in an explosive breath known as a blow. Blows are visible because water vapor in the whale’s hot breath condenses when the blow is released.

The Playful Activity of Whales

As a wildlife photographer, being out and around Whales is a special experience. It is a must-do. They are huge, yet energetic and maybe even playful. Photos of Humpback Whales can be captured off the coast in Alaska in the summer. A good guide with a fast boat comes in handy. It's a special experience when they breach or slap their tail.

Photos of Orca Whales, also known as Killer Whales, are a little more challenging to obtain, but we were lucky with some pods off the coast of the San Juan Islands. There are clear family bonds with the babies sticking close by Mom in both species of Whales.
