Photography

While I love to photograph many subjects, I am most passionate about Great White Sharks, a creature I’ve been enthralled with since childhood. I first had the privilege of diving with and filming these apex predators in 2001, with legendary shark attack victim-turned-conservationist Rodney Fox in South Australia, but more recently my pelagic adventures have taken me to Guadalupe Island in Mexico. Some of my images and/or photographic essays have been published by NationalGeographic.com, Scuba Diving, Underwater Photography Magazine, and Mexican Diver Magazine.
