This shot was taken during this years annual sardine migration. I had removed my strobes due to the backscatter and forgot to add weight, i was sat on the surface whilst my friends were seeing an awesome ball below, i was lucky to nail this shot.

As with just about anything, our judgement of it is defined by our perception of it. Once you have shed the perception the media would like you to have about shark, your eyes open & you can appreciate their beauty and expressions.

The ocean is filled with amazing creatures. One of the things that fascinates me the most is the shear magnitude this spans. From the largest animal on the planet down to super macro. (The tube part measures just over 1mm.)

~ For the Architect in me ~
One of the challenges I love about wildlife photography is the fact that you can't simply ask your models to pose like this or like. But with enough studying & perfect timing you can capture moments which seems so.

A stark reminder of the constant thread our oceans are under, be it from pollution, over fishing or poaching. Most of these happens out of sight and for most that means out of mind. We as photographers can change that!

The common name for this nudibranch in Cape Town is Purple Lady. I wanted to created a scene with the "lady" walking down a street lit boulevard at night and used the bokeh and the colours of the reef for this.

I simply love dive sites with interesting topography. Its kind of like being in mountainous terrain, only you can "fly" where ever you would like to go with little effort.

Spotted Gulley Shark at cave entrance. Of the inshore sharks found in our waters, these are the most skittish and a real treat to find one on a dive.

From time to time these Crystal Jellyfish gets swept inshore from the deep pelagic waters by up-welling. Its a long and harsh journey and finding a beautiful in-tacked jelly at the end of it is a rare find.

Diving in a kelp forest do feel as if you are in forest with one major benefit, you can glide to where ever you would like to go. It makes the forest experience even more surreal and one of my favourite places to dive!

Seven-gill Sharks are considered the oldest living shark specie around. This makes a dive with them in the kelp forest so much more special as it feels like you have been transported to another place and time!
