“Cetaceans epitomise that, and nothing is more perfect than any cetacean underwater, but whales are really special. To see animals so huge yet so graceful, so at ease and at one with their surroundings, is exquisite.”

Christopher has been running whale and dolphin-watching holidays all over the world for years, but he recently decided to focus solely on his talent for photography.
