Behind the Scenes of This Insane Underwater Photo Shoot with Sharks

by Melissa on January 19, 2016 1 comment

At first glance, these ethereal “shark shepherd” photographs taken by Benjamin Von Wong might seem like Photoshop composites, but if you look closer—or watch Von Wong’s behind-the-scenes video—you’ll see that they’re 100% genuine.

 
An internationally recognized photographer and visual engineer, Von Wong has made a name for himself shooting his subjects in unconventional and extreme environments. This shoot was no different—Von Wong photographed model and champion free-diver, Amber Bourke, with her feet tied to a shark-populated coral reef in the waters of Fiji.

With his team of divers and photography crew, Von Wong shot his ‘Shark Shepherd’ series over the course of three days, sometimes waiting hours at a time for sharks to swim into frame for these perfectly composed shots.

Von Wong created the series to promote awareness for shark preservation and has included his photos as part of a Change.org petition to create international shark sanctuaries and ban shark slaughter for trade.

“When you finally see what goes on underwater, you realize that you’ve been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent.” – Dave Barry

Looking through our collection of stock underwater photos, it’s evident that sometimes the ocean really does resemble a circus—and not just because of the aptly named “clownfish.”

There’s truly a sea of colors and wild faces to discover beneath the surface, and you can start by exploring our gallery of stock ocean photos.
