It is not that challenging to take a photograph of an orca - all that is needed is a bit of research, an experienced boat captain and an appetite for the sea. It is, however, extremely difficult to take a picture of an orca that is exciting, close and immersive and until this last trip to Norway, I had failed. Nothing I had taken before was special and nothing certainly constituted art.
The problem has always been two-fold. Firstly, I am too far away and secondly, my angle of view is too high because whatever boat I am on does not allow a shooting position close enough to the water.
