Smile!! - This cute sub 5m female Great White has the perfect smile. This photo I particularly like as it gives her some character and goes a long way to dispelling the myth caused by all the open mouth aggressive GWS shots.

Majesty - This shot shows a female white shark showing dominance towards another white shark (if you look hard you can see the other one in front of her nose). The lowered pecs is not an aggressive sign but does show she is the more dominent

Meet Moo!!!, This 4+ Metre male Great White shark has returned 12 years in a row to the Neptune Islands in South Australia. This shot was taken by laying on the marlin board of the boat and leaning the camera into the water.

Playing around on the back of the boat with over/under shots and a playful teenage white shark. Pole Cams are for pussies, real men lay on the back of the marlin board and hold the camera underwater, definitely gets the heart racing.
