My name is Chelsea, and I am incredibly lucky to be able to say that I photograph whales for a living. I work in Newport Beach, California for Newport Landing Whale Watching, Davey’s Locker Whale Watching and Newport Coastal Adventure.
Working on the ocean is relatively new for me- I attended UCLA's School of Theater, Film and Television and have a degree in Film Production and Directing. I worked on film sets and as a freelance photographer for a few years, but I didn't find what I really loved until I realized that I could work in the whale watching business. I photograph whales with both a DSLR and a drone- I'm licensed by the FAA to work commercially as a drone pilot.

Hope to see you out on the water!
