Taking the Shot Several years ago, I was photographing great white sharks at Guadalupe Island in Mexico. The shark cages are typically mounted to the stern of a ship and the top of the cage is about one foot below the water surface. This is great for viewing and photographing sharks underwater, but those shots tend to all look pretty much the same....kind of boring.
I really wanted to get an over/under shot of a great white, one that would show the shark in its underwater world while also showing the other world....our world....above. I convinced the boat captain to let me shoot from on top of the cage. Actually, my camera and upper body were on two boogie boards stacked together and just my legs were still on the top of the cage. The sharks were lured to my using big chunks of tuna tied to ropes. Just as the shark was about to take the tuna, the crewman tending the rope would jerk it away and out of reach. This actually angers the sharks, and several times as they would pass by me I got tail slapped by an angry shark. But this is all part of getting the job done.....I suppose.
With this setup and with me in the water, I was able to get close enough to the sharks, maybe about 18 inches, to get the shots I was looking for. I think it turned out pretty well… what do you think?
