See wildlife photography in action when you travel with professional photographers Doug Gardner and Aaron Baggenstos to the Pacific Ocean to take pictures of Southern Resident killer whales. You’ll learn how to capture clear images in spite of never knowing where or when these elusive creatures will surface.

Doug and Aaron will show you how to overcome the challenges of shooting on a moving boat and capturing unpredictable whales that emerge out of the water when they’re ready, even if you aren’t. You may never know where to point your camera, so it’s important to be watchful and ready to shoot at all times. You’ll learn all this and more while getting to know this incredible endangered species.
