Selfies with sharks

Shark photography is great, and in the last two years I have made a selfie with several shark species. Some are considered ‘dangerous’, but a diver/photographer who behaves in a normal, relaxed way and does not harass sharks, has nothing to fear. Sharks are not the maneaters people think they are – they are predators, whose prey is fish, sometimes seal.


We can be in the way, but we are  never on the menu.
