    This picture to me entails everything about my philosophy to my photography. What I have tried to do with my shark imagery is to illustrate that sharks are not scary creatures of the night, but are amazing majestic animals that need our help. 99% of the time you see sharks underwater they look like this ... not all teeth and jaws. the 'jaws' shot may be commercial, but as an ocean lover I feel its slightly immoral - just feeding the misconception people have about sharks.

    Great example of balancing ambient light and strobe light underwater perfectly. The shark is dramatically lit but it fits perfectly within the magical atmosphere set by the sunrays
