This Sperm Whale photograph was created under permit in the Azores. I was working on a book project for the Whale Dolphin Conservation Society. www.wdcs.org/ I also donated images to the dept. of Education in Portugal, so children could learn about these gentle giants of the deep.
In 2012, I will go to Dominica and photograph this species for a second time. This expedition is a permitted project and I plan to donate images to the Humane Society International www.hsi.org/www.hsi.org/ These organizations use photographs to educate people of all ages and countries and to raise awareness of important social issues.
