There's always something interesting to photograph at the Aquarium of the Pacific

During my shifts as a husbandry volunteer at the Aquarium of the Pacific, along with my boots and whistle, I always have on me some type of camera. It may be a waterproof Olympus, a high end Canon, a point and shoot Fuji camera or maybe even a small GoPro camera rig for a sea lion to carry, I always have something to photograph with. I go out of my way to document my weekly involvement with the Aquarium. It’s something I’ve been doing since the Aquarium opened back in 1998. What I love about the Aquarium is that there is always something interesting going on to photograph like the image above of a training session involving staffer Caitlin and Kenai the Arctic fox.

I guess it’s the old flight test photographer in me that wants to chronicle all the activities here at the Aquarium. It’s a way of preserving all the wonderful experiences that the Aquarium gives to its guests and staff for posterity.

Check out the other images below.
