"I like and thrive on photographing whales in my kayak, alone. Sometimes I find myself miles offshore but I live for the lower angle, as a photographer, a kayak gives me to while photographing these large animals. I am alone, with them. In 2015 I started uploading my photos of tails and flukes of humpback whales to a website called 'Happywhale.com' where they help, through photographers from around the world, identify whales. This ones called 'Exclamation Point'."
Vincent Shay (USA) is an award winning videographer and photographer from the Central Coast of California residing in Los Osos, California.
For the last 40 years, he has tried to achieve a life long goal of moving himself to a more close view of the beauty of what life has to offer. He loves the ocean... and everything about it and it just so happens he lives in Central California where life abounds.
In 1982, he got lucky to call this place home and hope through his images to show others his perspective of how awesome and raw this place is. "I don't pick my camera up for money anymore...that just seemed like a 'job' and less than liked it. The last ten years I am happy to work in the active outdoor industry owning Avila Beach Paddlesports with my wife, Em, and only take photos for myself. If others love the images and maybe want to purchase them for their own homes or galleries, I am truly honoured".
