Been awhile since I posted. I recently went diving to the Bahamas to play with Tiger and Great Hammerheads. We would have up to 8 Tigers at a time. Great time!!! Here are pics from the trip:

These are amazing, especially hand feeding the shark.
Much risk doing this?


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

Nope to be honest. You do need to know your situational awareness.

Huge fan of hammerheads...great shots. People need to know sharks are NOT what we perceive them as and we are wrecking absolute havoc on their population. We need these and way more people posting these types of images.

Nice pictures. What kind of underwater housing did you used? were these taken without extra lighting?

I have a Sea and Sea Housing. I was using my 5DMiV. I was also using 2 Ikelite 161 strobes. Sharks can be challenging to photograph. With the silver skin it is easy to overexpose them. I did have a lot that were underexposed it seemed.

Nice pics. I really like #2 and #3 as you get some scale of these majestic critters.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Thank you..there is nothing really that scary about diving with sharks. They are not aggressive in the water.
