Great Hammerheads

I spent the end of last week in Bimini shooting Great Hammerhead Sharks with Katie and Grant at Bimini Sands Hotel.  Pete Zuccarini and Peter Manno joined me with the Alexa housing.  On paper it looked like we had chosen the perfect weather window but that NOAA forecast never really seemed to arrive.  On the big day, we had pouring rain and dark overcast skies.  However, we did have sharks!  Three big hammerheads spent three hours behind our boat.  Grant and Katie did an over the top job of both securing bait, and presenting it to the sharks.  In fact, I am a guy who has seen plenty of baiting in my day, and Grant's attention to a fish carcas is noteworthy.  (If only there was SOME way to make a witty joke about a person's mastery of baiting.)  Of course, I would have traded quite a bit for sunny skies and flat seas, but in hind sight, I really like the rain marked surface, and the Watershot lights make for some dramatic images.

I think "Maestro Baiter" is as funny as I can come up with, but I'll keep thinking.... It's nice to have my talent recognized, especially considering it is one of so few.

Great images, Katie and I were really glad to finally get you and Pete over here to see this. Hopefully we can do it again.

Wow! I go to an arts school for photography (It's in Florida, you might recognize it : Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts) and I think I've been inspired! Your pictures are amazing!
