RECENT WORK: Swimming with Great White Sharks: 20151112_NYT_GreatWhites_0583

Isla Guadalupe, Mexico - November 12, 2015: A carcharodon carcharias, more commonly and infamously known as a great white shark, takes a bite out of some tuna bait hanging along the surface waters off the isolated volcanic Mexican Island of Isla Guadalupe. The island, long a destination for fur hunters and sports fishermen has large population of elephant seals, which in turn attracts a seasonal migration of great white sharks. The presence of a population of sharks is so consistent that in recent years the island has become a mecca for shark diving tourism.(Photograph by Benjamin Lowy for The New York Times)
