Smacked by a Whale Shark

When working as a producer at Daily Planet, that iconic show from Discovery Canada, I had an unfortunate incident with a whale shark. I had managed to get a variety of shots for the sequence, including tagging of the animal, and researchers photographing the animal. I even had the silhouette shot from down below. But what I still needed was the shot of the animal gently easing away and drifting into the blue. I learned a valuable lesson about filming from above an 8-meter shark: watch out for the tail!


Trips are postponed until further notice. Our Timor trip (November 2020) hopefully will move forward. Reservations are free of charge for all trips. Email us to reserve your spot.
