sperm whale from the ogasawara islands (photo: tony wu)
Wetpixel has just had a cancellation and is looking for 1-3 more photographers to join us in the Ogasawara Islands in Japan this coming October, 2009 to photograph sperm whales. We leave Tokyo by ferry on October 8, and return on the 20th. Sperm whales are the largest carnivores on the planet, and can be inquisitive, allowing photographers to approach very closely.
The trip will be led by Tony Wu and Eric Cheng. Full details can be found on our sperm whale expedition page:
