Absolutely STUNNING photography!!! Whales as you have never seen before!!!
Our town Hermanus is known as the Whale-Watching-Capital of South Africa. Every year between May and November tens of thousands of visitors are attracted by these huge mammals. The Hermanus Whale-Crier is widely marketed but did you ever hear of the Whale-Whisperer?
His name is Dave de Beer and he is a well known wildlife photographer specialising in bothbirds and whales. For 10 years now and during the whale-season you can find Dave somewhere along the waterside sunrise to sunset “Photographing whales challenges your ability to be patient”, he says. “Sometimes it can take days before I have a picture I’m satisfied with.”
Five years ago his first whale book was published and became an overnight success. In September, after another 5 whale seasons, the Whale-Whisperer strikes again with the publication of his second book. The title: ‘Hermanus Whales’. Subtitle: ‘The journey continues’. And it’s a bestseller!!!
