Dolphin Watch UK started as a hobby in childhood, an infatuation you might call it, that’s become a way of life an adulthood. Im very lucky to be able to work with some of the top skippers in the UK with countless years of experience to deliver a day to remember and if you bring your camera the photos to prove it. Although we specialise in Dolphin Safaris, we also hope to see other beautiful marine life including Seals, Porpoises, Seabirds and theres always a chance of Sharks, Sunfish and even Whales….
Check out our dolphin counters to see how the skippers are getting on in finding them in the different ports the we currently run from.
We work closely with skippers, their crew and other boats to maximise the chances of giving you an exceptional day and whilst sadly its not always possible, these are wild animals after all, luckily the OFF days are very few and far between.
To find out more about why we use the Boats and Skippers we do and to see some of the fantastic animals we are lucky enough to see while we are at sea, click the below;
Welcome aboard the Dolphin Watch UK excursion with added photography support! Something that is so important when you go on a wonderful trip such as this, is making sure you have the memories to remember it by. Dolphins breaking the water, birds diving for fish, Seals checking you out and the occasional Basking Shark.
The problem is that you can’t ask them to hold on while you frame the shot. Leaving the camera on Auto might get a picture, but will it get you something that you are happy to talk about for ages with friends!
The idea behind having Simon Palmer on board with Dolphin Watch is to get to grips with a better understanding of the fundamentals of photography. Knowing how to use the camera gives you a better chance of making the picture you want. While it’s never guaranteed that it will happen every time, it will increase your chance of it!
Simon will cover using Aperture, ISO, and Shutter to gain a better photograph along with other tools and composition ideas. Even at Sea!!
