Oceanic White Tip Shark part of Art For Conservation program

This was my first time seeing a large pelagic shark and it got me very excited about blue water ambient light photography.  In fact it was a turning point. For 20 years I had been diving reefs, walls, sand, muck, and never knew about life out in the blue. The last six years I have made it point to spend at least a few weeks out in the blue……

Ten  percent of the net proceeds of this image are donated to the Humane Society International, for the work they are doing on stopping the demand for shark fin soup among people around the world.  In 2011, millions of sharks were killed just for the fin, which is used in Chinese restaurants for shark fin soup.   Sharks are the barometer of the ocean.  When present the reefs are healthy. When they are not there the reefs die.
