Man V’s Shark

My Articles and Babble

Only last month I got my own underwater housing for my 5D Mk II and no sooner than a week goes by and there is a report of a shark attack on Avoca Beach (my prime shooting spot). Looks like it wasnt so much as an attack more like a surfer standing on some kind of Wobbygong and it gave him a nip on the leg.

I currently follow a stream on the website flickr for people who shoot with underwater housings. Great source of info and also the pics too. Well yesterday this bloke dale had a close encounter of his own. Check out these shots with a Mako coming at him. Crazy crazy crazy stuff. He kept his eye on the shark at all times and fought it off with his housing, but still took a few shots as well.

Dales flickr stream can be followed here so you can read his thoughts on the situation and the comments on each image.

  1. wow there wicked shots!!! how lucky is this guy lol… in the pictures it only looks like a small shark, but them teeth look very sharp hahah….he should sent these into nat geo magazine 😀

  2. I’m with Bryce… with teeth like that size dosen’t matter and remember this is shot with a fisheye so this sucker is bigger than it looks and also a lot closer as well. Those people on the pier apparently were shooting video of it… would be great to see that.

  3. hahahahaha aqua-tured!! funny shit…. yeah i went to that guys flickr page, he has some nice under water shots, i dont get how the pano housing works hahah is there 2 cameras?

    1 near new Kobetech underwater housing.
    A few teeth marks around front port but ok otherwise.
    Some brown staining to rear and rear seal may need a pressure test.
