I am so very fortunate to have had Kai Metthes of Germany on my recent Sperm Whale Photography expedition in Dominica. I will always remember Kai as the fearless diver that faced a wild animal just to create a portrait of it with a diver. Kai’s enthusiasm and excitement as well as understanding of nature and wild animals made this trip really enjoyable.
Kai was using a top of the line Canon with a new 11-24 mm lens. From my perspective that lens coverage is perfect for what we were doing. I was using a Nikon 16 mm fish eye or Tokina 10-17 set at 16.5 with my Nikon D810. Below is an image of Kai working with the whales.

I look forward to traveling with Kai again, somewhere there are whales! All the best to my friend the fearless diver!
