I love taking photos of animals, especially white sharks. :O) I started photographing sharks in 2006 and haven't been hooked ever since. My goal is to showcase sharks in a manner that helps to dispel some of the negative and overblown stereotypes that are often used to portray these animals in the major media. While they are indeed wild, predatory animals who need to be treated with a certain level of caution and respect (as is the case with any wild animal), they are simply not the bloodthirsty man-hunters like the shark in "Jaws." If you want to know more about the story behind my shark photography check my interview with The Weekly Flickr.
