Daredevil Underwater Photographer Captures Stunning Images Of Humpback Whales In The South Pacific

The photos, taken by photographer Grant Thomas, show the whales up close and personal like you’ve never seen them before. The images were taken off the coast of Tonga in the South Pacific.

Thomas said: “I have always had a fascination with the natural world and in particular the ocean, as well as photography, but it wasn’t until I started working as a scuba diving instructor and purchased my first underwater housing four years ago that I took my photography underwater. Since then it has become a huge part of my life. Through my images I aim to show off the amazing life we have on our planet in hope of inspiring more people to experience it for themselves and, most importantly, care for it. I have been going back to Tonga every year for the past six years to swim with the whales, and it honestly never gets any less exciting.”

Originally from Scotland, Grant has always had a fascination with the natural world and in particular the ocean. After finishing a degree in Engineering he took the opportunity to travel. This was the best decision he has ever made, as it was traveling that really developed his passion for photography. He was, and still very much is, dedicated to capturing the real beauty of the places he visits.
