Sometimes you come across people that you never thought you’d hear of unless you are an avid surfer of the web.Â I just so happened to have come across a guy who we all should admire.Â His name is Eric Cheng.
Eric Cheng is an award-winning underwater photographer known for his passion as an educator. Eric won a prestigious Antibes Festival award for his work with Wetpixel.com, the Antibes underwater imaging web site of the year.
Turns out that Eric was part of a team that helped out an injured sperm whale and as a result of their help that whale then allowed multiple photographs with Eric right in the water with him.Â Pretty amazing stuff.
Even though the whales are pretty harmless it must be daunting to be in the water with something that big.
