I think a lot of underwater photographers get a kick out of the catch phrase for the Discovery Channel's Shark Week: “Any closer and you’d be bait.”
Not only is the idea that being in water with sharks automatically makes us bait slightly over-the-top; but what’s more, any photog would kill to be in the water with a shark and a camera!
Much like I will never forget my first dive, my first shark encounter with a shark still resonates with me—at just 12 years old I spied a nurse shark tucked under a rock in the Caribbean. And while I didn’t have a camera to capture that moment, I have been fortunate enough to capture dozens more of shark encounters since. Here are some of my favorites:
Fantasea FG7X II
Ikelite Housing for Nikon D500
I-DiveSite Venom 35s
