Shark Photo Tutorials

Underwater photography and video tutorial series for shooting sharks
By Brent Durand

Sharks are one of the most popular underwater photo and video subjects. And for good reason - they swim in a way that is different from other fish, and while some hide in nooks of the reef, the most photographed swim confidently in the open with a mouthful of teeth, eliciting awe, and pumping the adrenaline of eager divers.

There are many different ways to photograph sharks, from long focal lengths to capture natural encounters to intense feeding sessions where only a fisheye lens will capture the scene.

These tutorials explore the details of shark photography in various dive situations, offering great tips, gear advice, settings and insight from some amazing photographers.
