Humpback Whales

Swim with Humpback Whales in Tonga

Imagine sharing the ocean with a 30-40ft humpback whale as she gracefully moves through the water seemingly oblivious of your presence.  It is one of the most phenomenal and most incredible experiences you will ever have.  Ready the cameras to capture your very own footage as a calf comes up for a breath and looks directly at you – breathtaking. This is the 2D version of the 3D trailer  for the upcoming IMAX release ‘Sea of Love’ that Jon Shaw was Director of Photography (DOP). Shot with Pawel Achtel’s 3Deep RED Epic 5K housing.
