I'm currently in Istanbul, Turkey, on my way home from Egypt where I was photographing in the Red Sea, training my cameras on coral reefs, shipwrecks, and sharks. Front and center were oceanic whitetip sharks, like this beautiful creature with its attendant pilotfish bodyguards who ride in the slipstream of this open ocean wanderer.
This shoot wraps up a travel marathon stretching over three months, during which time I created new images of humpback whales in Tonga, great white sharks in Mexico, giant octopus in British Columbia, among many other critters large and small. I'm looking forward to taking a little breather til the end of the year, when we will once again take to the seas.
Safe and Happy Holidays to everyone,
Brandon and Melissa
