About the event:
“To look into the eye of a whale and have them look back is like no other wildlife experience on the planet.” - Darren Jew
This is the marine photography adventure of a lifetime!
Not only will you experience some of the best whale encounters imaginable, you’ll receive expert tuition allowing you to take your photography to the next level of technique and creativity.
Your choice of either an 8 night
or 11 night
tour gives you quality time in the water, up close and personal with the magnificent humpback whales, in the clear, warm waters of their Winter breeding grounds.
This is your chance to shoot alongside Canon Master, Darren Jew and gain personal insights into the creative processes that goes into capturing his award-winning images.
In addition to on-water time, a mix of structured workshop sessions and supervised lab time will be led by Darren and the Canon Collective
during the experience to ensure you make the most of the images you capture.
Another huge advantage to this trip is the Collective will also be supplying all the professional grade, underwater camera equipment as required for the duration of the trip. Equipment hire of gear, at this level, for this period of time would be worth approx $4,000 per person if you were to hire it yourself, this is all included in the package. Along with Darren, Jasmine and the Canon Collective, on-hand to assist you in getting the most out of the gear you've got and not only capture but assist you in post-processing your images to create an amazing portfolio of work from your Tongan adventure.
