Shark Shootout Returns!
In the years 2004 - 2007 Stuart Cove and I collaborated on a very successful series of shark photography events in the Bahamas. Hosted by Stuart Cove Dive Bahamas, the Shark Shootout provided close access to what has to be the world's largest population of Caribbean reef sharks amid diverse venues; including shallow reef, shipwrecks, and even a cage scenario (shooting sharks from both inside and outside the cage).
These were very popular events, but other projects and destinations intervened, and we both needed a break. But, looking back with nostalgia over some of the hot shots from Shark Shootouts past, we realized it was time to revisit this event.
We don't necessarily expect it to be an annual gig like we did in the mid-2000s, but for this November the rare opportunity exists for stellar photographic access to Caribbean reef sharks with a team who know what photographers are looking for (and knows how to deliver).
Bookings go through Stuart Cove's organization at http://www.stuartcove.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are a sample of the kinds of things we photograph in Shark Shootout:
