Who I am
My name is Judith Scott and I am an international whale watching guide! I have wanted to work with whales since I saw one on TV when I was around seven. Currently I work in Iceland, South Africa and Mexico with a variety of different species. I trained as a marine guide with a naturalist who had studied whale watching education as her masters, so was an incredible teacher. I also worked for two and a half years on a Dr Roger Payne’s research boat Odyssey, sailing around the world studying sperm whales. Dr Payne was the scientist who discovered humpback whale song. Through this I fell in love with travelling, photography and nature, as well as even more in love with whales! I have since travelled in all the world’s continents and sailed on the Atlantic, Indian, Southern and Pacific Oceans following my dreams. I hope that you enjoy seeing some of my photographs and learning about what is out there in the amazing natural world.
