Learn stop action photography when you travel with professional photographers Doug Gardner and Aaron Baggenstos on the Pacific Ocean to take pictures of Southern Resident killer whales. You’ll learn how to capture clear images even though you never know where or when the lightning-quick whales will surface.

Professional Photographers Doug Gardner and Aaron Baggenstos take you out on the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Washington State to instruct you on how to capture high quality photos of orca whales. They show you how to deal with the challenges of shooting pictures on a moving boat and unpredictable whales that come up out of the water when they’re ready, not when you are. Also, you never know for sure just where to point your camera, so you have to be watchful and ready to shoot at all times. You will also get to know more about this endangered species.
