Shotkit lets you take a peek inside the camera bags of working professionals, and they recently published a feature about my work and my current project 360in360. This project is 4 yeas in the planning and thanks to the support of Olympus, we have had the right equipment to make this project such a success. Thanks to Shotkit for the feature.
One of my favourite times of year in Tonga is when Garrett and his family turn up for their annual pilgrimage to swim with the whales. I love the enthusiasm and connection they have with the whales. Their bucketlist journey takes them all around the world. Their latest v-blog really captures the essence of their last trip here with us in Tonga. Can’t wait to see you guys again next season. I love this video!!

Attend workshops with Scott Portelli to learn more about your photography or tweak what you already know. workshops will include practical and in classroom techniques.
“If the name Scott Portelli means anything to you, it’s probably because either this archetypal amiable Aussie is a good mate, or you’ve feasted your eyes on his exceptional images. Over the years, this consummate pro has picked up numerous awards for his underwater photography, including the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year and national winner at the Sony World Photography Awards.
But Scott doesn’t just trek to some of the world’s remotest corners with only still imagery in mind. He’s also an accomplished underwater videographer who has filmed everything from leopard seals in Antarctica and humpbacks in Tonga to whale sharks in Papua New Guinea and, of course, the spectacular landscapes and seascapes Down Under. Oh, and if you need majestic aerial views of the planet’s extreme places, Scott’s also got you covered: He’s a licenced UAV pilot, too.
What ties together all of Scott’s work, however, is an impressive storytelling ability that allows him to capture succinctly the essence of his creature subjects, whether it’s in the single frame of a photo or the moving pictures of just one or two minutes of film.”
