Pilbara News - - Front Page - ■ Louise Alling­ham

Lo­cal Ex­mouth pho­tog­ra­pher Vi­o­leta Ja­hel Brosig is gear­ing up ahead of this year’s whale shark sea­son to get up and close with the gen­tle gi­ants.

Mrs Ja­hel Brosig has been pho­tograph­ing the marine life along the Nin­ga­loo Reef and Cape Range Na­tional Park for more than seven years af­ter mov­ing to Aus­tralia from Brazil.

“I came to Ex­mouth to fol­low a dream of doc­u­ment­ing whale sharks and fell in love with the stun­ning Nin­ga­loo Reef and the va­ri­ety of vis­tas the cape range has to of­fer.

“I love to work with whale sharks as it pro­vides peo­ple with a life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence swim­ming with them like it did with me,” she said.

Mrs Ja­hel Brosig has worked with the Shire of Ex­mouth, Tourism WA and EcoOcean Re­search to pro­mote the area.

She has also set up her own pho­tog­ra­phy busi­ness called Blue Me­dia Ex­mouth which doc­u­ments the wildlife and marine life along the Ex­mouth coast, and has since branched out into wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy.
