Photographer Bryant Austin Swims Eye to Eye With a Whale

FORA.tv (June 11, 2013) — Conservation photographer Bryant Austin is the only photographer in the world producing high-resolution, life-size photography of whales. A chance encounter with a humpback calf and its mother helped Austin develop a technique to create detailed, intimate portraits of his subjects. Spending days at a time submerged with groups of whales, he remains motionless, allowing humpback, sperm, and minke whales that are sometimes forty-five feet in length and weigh as much as fifty tons to come within six feet. In this presentation, Austin will describe his fearless process and reveal images from his breathtaking new book, Beautiful Whale, which will be published in April 2013 by Abrams. Hear the story behind these impactful images that inspire people to take the future of whales-endangered throughout the oceans-into their hearts.
