Pictures with the Shark. Ready in 3, 2, 1 Go


Don’t worry!   These were Whale Sharks in the Philippines.   Their main diet–plankton!

Goal:  “to highlight the magnificence of these creatures and bring their beauty to a global audience.”

 Challenge:  “to turn models into mermaids and create mesmerizing imagery that captured the unique connection between humans and the largest fish in the ocean, the whale shark.”


From the article: “It was at Oslob, a year ago, that Heinrichs captured what he said were the first images revealing the close relationship that had developed between local fisherman and whale sharks. The fishermen had befriended the gentle giant by hand-feeding them scoops of tiny shrimp.”

“After a week of intense shooting, overcoming the elements, technical obstacle and fatigue, the team returned home with some of the most innovative and inspiring marine life interaction imagery ever captured.”
