Sure, sharks are big and intimidating animals with even more intimidating teeth, but they really do get a bad rap. Their sheer size and streamlined figure make them more than photogenic. That’s partially why Australian photographer Jeremy Ferris was so motivated to do an underwater fashion shoot where the model shares the frame with a frenzy of sharks. Perhaps the most daunting part of the project was connecting with the right model and dive master who were not only comfortable working on the shoot, but also experienced enough to be a safety asset.
It took Ferris a while to assemble his small team, but once he was introduced to a model and shark handler/safety diver in Nassau, the photoshoot went perfectly to plan. The group dove to an old shipwreck site about 75-foot (22.8 meters) and got to work.
Take a look at some of the behind the scenes footage in the short clip, below.
