World-class nature / wildlife photographer Scott Mead will conduct his annual "Day with the Whales" workshop on the island of Maui, Hawaii on March 3. The one-day workshop begins with classroom instruction where attendees will learn how to properly setup and protect their camera gear for the prevailing conditions on the water, gain some insight to the history of whaling in Hawaii, and learn a series of tips and tricks for capturing amazing images of these magnificent creatures. Last year, workshop attendees encountered a female with her calf, and a competition pod of no less than 13 whales. Photographers can register for the workshop here. The total cost of the workshop is $250.
With the new Strap-Surfer, the German company Sun-Sniper GmbH introduces the next revolution in savvy camera carrying and presents the most clever connection between a regular shoulder bag and a camera since the invention of the tripod adapter. With only a few simple steps, the Strap-Surfer is firmly attached to the shoulder bag and secured. The camera can then be carried right on the bag – the photographer no longer has to decide whether to take the bag or the camera strap and does not have to wear a strap over each shoulder.
