A good photograph should be in your head before you squeeze the shutter....

Mutual respect

.... but in order to get a perfect shot you need luck, lots of it.

I think I was extremely lucky to have captured this minimalistic image.

It is the most harmonious graphic composition of
mutually respectful interaction between man and shark I have ever managed to record on film.

The elegant freediver is my buddy Roger Horrocks, and the shark is one of the many playful black tip sharks of Aliwal Shoal (South Africa).

Have a look at Roger's new website, and enjoy his fabulous photographs.
