A film by Jerome Espla

Back in April when I was in South Africa I had met a great bunch of guys, including some top freedivers.  Well, among the group was also underwater cinematographer Jerome Espla.  During their visit to Aliwal Shoal, he was doing a short feature on Fred Buyle (one of the best underwater photographers I have met - freedives and only uses natural light) and the tiger sharks. 

Take a moment to watch the video, while in French, you will get the essence of it:

This  movie has just won the "Prix du Jury" at the Underwater Festival in Antibes this year.  Have a look at Jerome's blog as well (in French).   I should also mention that Jerome's a great guy, humble and a real pleasure to be around.
