Some photographers have all the luck

Bryant Austin has a great job. He’s photographer with an affinity for whales. He creates epic life sized murals by putting together hundreds of photos taken from 6 feet away. How cool is that?

Bryant Austin now creates high-resolution, life-size photographs of whales. This must be accomplished by photographing inquisitive whales at a distance of no more than 6 feet, taking hundreds of photographs that are later pieced together to form the final image. The work is dangerous. The results are amazing. The impact is profound. Bryant hopes that his intimate portraits of endangered whales will change perceptions about the animals that will hopefully lead to the reduction or elimination of whaling.

I’ve got to see one of his murals.
