You are invited to join Michael on this very special Camera West Photo Walk where we will explore the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Located at the ocean’s edge, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a window to fascinating marine life. It is home to sea otters, penguins, sharks, jellies and thousands of other marine animals and plants.
A three-story, 335,000-gallon tank with clear acrylic walls offers photographers stunning views of leopard sharks, sardines, anchovies, and other creatures swimming through a towering kelp forest. There is also a 1.2-million-gallon Outer Bay tank that houses open-ocean life, including yellowfin tuna, large green sea turtles, barracuda, sharks, giant ocean sunfish, and schools of bonito.
Shooting through acrylic and getting proper exposure and sharp images can be challenging but Michael will be there by your side to help you produce photos you’ll be proud of.
Unlike past photo walks, only 6 participants will accompany Michael for this one giving you the opportunity to work closely with him to hone your photographic skills.
Sign up early for this photo walk as it will fill up quickly. Note that it is on a Thursday, to take advantage of less crowds.
