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.

"Synchronised swimming" These two dolphins buzzed by right past me while working with KI Dolphin Watch research in early January - studying and identifying wild bottlenose dolphins in the cool temperate waters off Kangaroo Island.

Meet Chainsaw the little 3.5m Great White. The lens make him look small but he's a feisty little bugger. Chainsaw has a huge chunk out of his head (unfortunately the other side from this pic) and really does look he's been in the wars.

Meet Bruce, the smiling 5m male great white. Bruce was one of 5 whites that circled us during the dive, making for a nerve racking ascent. Taken at 24m at the Neptune Islands, South Australia using a Nikon D700 16mm & 1.4x converter.
Runner Up - worthy of note but not a medal winner - an equal 4th place if you like! Runner Up 2011

Watching Great Whites in their natural environment (in this case down at 26 metres) is an incredible site. On this dive we had 5 GW's encircle us including this 4.5m male. Certainly made getting back to the surface interesting.

Surprise!! While sitting patiently watching a big Great White playing with some sea weed, this 4+m male GW scared the hell out of me as he snuck by for an ultra close pass. Evidently I don't taste good.
