Every week people come into the gallery and ask me if I was scared when photographing Lemon and Bull Sharks. The truth is I was really excited not scared.
What does scare me is going out of the harbor in the dark, knowing I am going to place where the surf is 60 foot plus. In fact it is really frightening. But, then the sun comes up and you can see and you realize that while the surf is huge, being on a boat with a captain that understands whats going on the feeling you have is priceless.
We saw people surf these waves and I was and still am amazed the risks people will take to have fun. Of course, I dive with sharks and swim with whales, and many think I am crazy. But am I…. There is a certain freedom in doing what your passionate about.
