This is my personal blog thanks for stopping by. I write about what I see and experience while I am out Whale Watching. I am far from a writer but know my way around the ocean and a camera. My focus is capturing images of Humpback Whales here in the waters of NYC, LI and North NJ also known as the Western New York Bight.
The following are blogs about things I see while out on the ocean and yes, I will throw in a concert here and there.
I go out on a few boats to get these photos. One boat I own is named the “SHIP OF FOOLS” (SOF) and I run out of Bay Park, East Rockaway N.Y. The other boat is the famous American Princess Cruises (AP) with Gotham Whale (GW) out of Riis Landing in Queens N.Y. It is NYC's only Whale Watching boat and I can't stress this enough...you have to get on the AP for a NYC whale watch, it is incredible!
I work for GW as their social media manager, official photographer, photo manager, and Curator of the NYC Humpback Whale Catalog. As photo curator for GW, I capture images of humpback whales, focusing on markings on the fluke or other areas. I match up the flukes and markings to the whales we have in the NYC Humpback Whale Catalog. When a humpback whale photo has no match to the humpback whale catalog, a number is assigned (example NYC00011) and that whale is now in the catalog. If it's a match, we have a retuning Humpback Whale to the Western Bight.
