Growing up in Tofino you get to experience nature first hand. Orcas swim through the harbour all the time and bear hang out in your backyard. I photographed this Orca while on a shoot for the Pacific Yellowfin in Desolation Sound, BC. We were in a small tender and were following the whales along the shore that were in shadow. When the whales were in the light, it made for some very dramatic images. I was really pleased when it all came together.
