A few pics from diving in Mexico last week

I spent last week photographing and diving with Great White Sharks, Isla Guadalupe, Mexico. Fabulous week spending time with these stunning animals…absolute privilege and the most incredible experience.

#1 to #4 and #6 are Momma’s, eh? You met the big females ready to pup?
How did you pick the perfect time between all of the hurricanes this season. Baja was hurricane central this year.
Love the shots and appreciate what you are doing for shark conservation.
Well Done, Warren.

We were lucky with the weather, the boat had been held in Ensenada for the last two weeks and had not been able to get out due to Hurricanes and rough sea. The weather was good for us, the 24 hour crossing to Guadalupe can be tough going but once there, it was pretty ideal conditions.

How did I miss this thread? All I can say is “wow”! Fabulous shots. How close did you get, or were you using a long lens?

Thanks eeeefarm…hope you are well :slight_smile:

I was using a 10mm wide angle lens on the majority of shots so you were just a few feet away. Captivating animal, most of the time they were very calm and quite shy, no sign of malice or aggression that you see on ‘shark week’.

Wow this are amazing photos. I thought that Ripleys aquarium is something but this is amazing! WOW

Let me ask you this question. You swimming with sharks no protection? Have you ever felt scared? omg these photos are amazing!

Thanks Admin  :slight_smile:

We did have protection if we felt we needed it at any stage. We would stand up on the top of the cages (see below) so that we had a certain level of protection, but still the freedom to do the photography. From time to time the odd shark would sometimes get a little familiar or over excited so we would drop down inside the cage when this happened.

Thanks Warren. 10mm on a crop sensor?

I’m thinking there must be a video of this somewhere. Even a GoPro bolted to a light bracket would grab our attention. LOL

10 mm on a crop sensor (Canon 7D) :slight_smile:

There is a video…very tongue in cheek, just for  fun so not to be taken seriously as I was messing about on my Mac during the long flight home from San Diego. :stuck_out_tongue:

I will post a proper video once I have downloaded and got round to sorting the footage.

Great Teaser! I see a WP was somewhat involved in the production, LOL
