52 years old photographer, Jim Abernethy, from Florida, has spent 35 years living with these fearsome predators in their natural habitats and released a book of shark photographs – Sharks Up Close
Each year Jim Abernethy spends on average 320 days with sharks and took close-up photos of these underwater beasts in the Bahamas, South Africa and Mexico. It is surprising that some of these world’s most feared sharks even follow him around like tame pets. So he is called ‘shark shepherd’.
He has a modified microlight aircraft called "Oversear", a boat is used instead of the wheels. Jim uses it to take aerial pictures of the underwater sharks.
Jim Abernethy was taking photos and guiding his clients.
