Free diving with Sharks

I have always had a fear of diving with sharks, which is strange considering that my first books were on sharks and I have been diving since I am about 9 months old - we lived in the Bahamas, backyard was the ocean.

My father has a fascination with sharks, and has been photographing them for the last 10 years, without any major incidents, expect for the 52 stitches in his arm after a love bite. Two years ago I decided to once and for all come face to face with my so called fear - but I armed myself...with a video camera.

I figured I might as well document my old man dancing with these sea-wolves before he dies, of old age that this, his friends with fins will not taste him again.

The video has been posted on our website, - take a look, let me know what you think....
