Living in Sydney you hear a lot about sharks: fear of sharks, reported shark attacks, the latest technology to keep sharks and surfers separate, advocates of sharks, and so on. George T. Probst, who I discovered online today, falls squarely into the last category.
In 2006 George began amateur shark photography and his skills and equipment have been evolving ever since. He now has a portfolio of stunningly beautiful images which serve to increase awareness of the importance of shark conservation, and to attempt to break through the hostile reputation they have. Although great white sharks are large predatory fish which have the potential to injure and kill, they’re mostly curious and calm, according to George’s observations. He has also become familiar with individuals and can differentiate between their different ‘personalities’.
To read George’s fascinating bio and to see more of his photographs of these majestic kings and queens of the ocean, head to the website where prints of his work are available for purchase.
