Very proud to have received at ADEX in Singapore a Special Mention in the Sea Scape with Models category of the very prestigious Ocean Geographic PICOTY competition.
This image I created in Cenderawasih Bay in West Papua. The human model is my beautiful wife Sarah-Jo, and the very large fish is a Whaleshark. They are actually the largest fish in the ocean, and personally one of my favourite. This photo was taken quite late in the afternoon after spending most of the day with up to 5 different Whalesharks. They seem to become more interested in you at the end of the day and it almost seems like they want to "play". And that is what this young male is doing here, Sarah-Jo was never in any danger (they don't have any teeth).
