I have the coolest kayak known to man, it’s called a Wavewalk Kayak and it’s the world’s stablest fishing Kayak.
I custom made a camera mount for this boat and all the images in this gallery are those captured using it, I hope you like!!
The images on my site have no crop factor, in the water, with a few tricks I was able to get within 3 yards of the subject, something about being in the water in my Kayak they do not see me as a threat. Normally on land a green heron would fly away after spotting me at 50 yards. Also, considering that I’m using about 8,000 dollars worth of equipment in a kayak is so out of the ordinary or should I say crazy… Every time I go out I’m approached by people asking me if I’m worried about tipping over and destroying 8k worth of equipment, I tell them “not in my Wavewalk”. I’m able to access and photograph animals in spots so thick in vegetation that you can’t even see the water.
