Every once in a while I have a close encounter with humpbacks. These encounters are always on the whales’ terms. They come to the boat, the engine is off, and I am completely passive. Over time they can become increasingly curious. This encounter was the better part of three hours and by the end they were literally sticking their noses in my face. The camera shake is because I was so cold! Most of my footage is taken with a heavy Gates housing and the rig weighs around 60 pounds which is like having a tripod. This lightweight Sony camera isn’t so stable in the hands of a shivering cameraman. On the other hand, I might not have been able to swim for three hours with a heavy Gates in my hands. – Andrew Stevenson
