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

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.

It is a widely held misconception that Great White sharks only breach in South Africa. Freckles is a 4m male who is an aerial specialist attacking baits at up to 56 K's an hour to enable him to launch his entire body out of the water.
