Cameron Azad:  Tiger Shark and Sunball


How did you get the image?

I exposed and composed for the background, and waited for the shark to swim into the frame to capture the image.

What was special about this opportunity you had to capture the image?

My first two trips to Tiger Beach Bahamas had bad weather. Trip three featured ideal conditions: sunny skies and flat seas.

What equipment and camera settings were you using to capture the image?

Shot with a Nikon D800E and Sigma 15mm fisheye, in a Nauticam housing, and using Inon strobes, 1/250, f13, ISO 200.

How long have you been photographing and what, in particular, got you into nature photography?

I started shooting underwater 20 years ago because the complexity of underwater photography intrigued me.

Describe your nature photography experience level and current status.

Underwater is still my favorite, but I’m active in almost all aspects of nature photography.

How should people follow you or see more of your work?

While underwater photography is my favorite, I practice almost all aspects of nature photography. I work as an investment professional for a global bank but still manage to get out regularly for photo trips all over the world.
