“What are your top tips for whale photography?”

I have lost count how often I’ve been asked that question (or some variation of it) so here’s your answer you’ve been looking for.

If you’ve ever wanted a quick insight into how to take great whale photos, check this out! This FREE ebook includes:

🐋 My Top 10 (PLUS ONE!) tips for capturing those awesome whale photos that make peoples’ jaws drop.

📷 The best bits of what I’ve learnt over 10+ years of whale watching – suggested camera settings, what gear to use, and what to look for.


📋 a BONUS checklist for a day of whale watching. What items you need to take with you to make sure your day on the water is comfortable AND memorable.

The ebook is 7 pages chock-a-block full of the stuff I’ve learnt over many years of whale watching in Australian waters, both with and without a camera in my hand.

Because taking good whale photos isn’t JUST about the camera gear or what settings you should use.

It’s also about the whales themselves.

I cover that and more in this freebie. The best part is you can print it out and take it with you!
