Have you ever felt stuck not knowing what gear you need to take a good shot? ‘πŸ€”

Have there been times when you’re out in nature taking photos of animals but haven’t been happy with the results? πŸ™ˆ

Do you want to learn more about whale watching and wildlife photography (specifically, whale photography)? πŸ”Ž

If you answered ‘YES!’ to any of these questions, join this short webinar and I’ll help you get the photos you want!

What I’m going to help you with

βœ” Let’s talk GEAR!
Far and away, the question I am most asked is what gear I am using. Guess what? I’m going to tell you! I’ll also be sharing the settings I use, my recommendations on other equipment and some tips and tricks to help YOU get the shot! If you’ve ever wanted to know how I take my photos, this is the place to be!

βœ” What’s your subject?
One of the keys to photographing a subject is learning about it! My specialty is whales and I’m going to do a quick rundown on the different species, their behaviours (spyhop? peduncle throw?? 😡) and interacting with them… but also how to interact with wildlife in general.

βœ” What to look for in a tour operator
The question I get asked second most is who do I recommend going with. I’m happy to give my opinions πŸ˜‰ but I’ll go one better and tell YOU what to look for when selecting a good tour operator.

βœ” Your comfort on the water
Because we’ll be talking marine mammals, I know not everyone has a cast iron stomach and sea sickness can be a concern – but I’ve got some handy hints which may help you feel much better being on the water.

βœ” …and much more!
I’m even going to touch on things like editing the photos you take… it doesn’t end when you click the shutter button!

PLUS you’ll also get…

  • An electronic booklet (‘handout’) filled with information I’m covering (and a few things that didn’t make it into the webinar!)
  • Access to the recorded event for 28 days after the event!
  • FREEBIE! If you register for the event AND you bring a friend (who registers too), I’ll mail YOU a free print – hardcopy, not electronic – of one of my whales breaching!

This webinar will be largely based off my own experiences whale watching in Australia BUT there are elements that are handy for ALL wildlife photography, marine or terrestrial (land-based).

I look forward to sharing some of my knowledge to help YOU capture stunning images!

At this stage, no, it’s a one-off event. Whether or not it happens again will depend entirely on how well this first one goes and if there is interest for any more! But currently, this will be the only one. So if you’re on the fence, REGISTER!

About Sarah Gower

Sarah Gower is an Australian whale watching ‘tragic’ (nothing tragic about it, says I!) who adores whale watching and Humpback Whales.

Sarah has been whale watching every year for the last 10 years and has been serious about wildlife photography, and particularly whale photography, for the last five years. Her passion is sharing her experiences with these gentle giants, showing the gentle, playful nature of these marine mammals and inspiring others to go out whale watching to experience it for themselves.

Sarah has been lucky enough to see Migaloo, Australia’s famous all-white Humpback Whale, three times in two years – if you ask her, she’ll talk your ear off about it.

You can generally find her haunting Instagram and she’s always happy to answer questions people may have, whether it’s a recommendation on a tour operator or a particular camera setting to use.


If you have any other questions not listed here, or any other issues, please email me at [email protected]. I’m happy to try and help however I can.
