Underwater cinematographer and shark diver, Dan Abbott, joins Skyler Thomas on the White Shark Cafe SharkCast to kick off this season of tiger shark-themed shows.
Dan specializes in working with presenters and filming natural wildlife behavior (topside, underwater, aerial), with a high level of understanding and experience with large marine animals, in particular sharks.
Dan has a proven track record of working on social media projects that require a quick turnaround. For example, he worked on Lizzie Daly’s Wild Ocean Week, which featured a giant barrel jellyfish. This project was a huge success, and the jellyfish became one of the biggest wildlife stories of 2019. The project was also featured in news stories around the world, including on the BBC, ITV, Discovery, and FOX News.
Kicking off this season of SharkCasts we opened up by having a little fun analyzing some rather hairy encounters with tiger sharks and divers.
Yes, we threw out that naughty phrase “shark attack” that tends to draw so much attention, but after all, the clips we reviewed were originally called attacks.
After watching our analysis would you still consider them to be “attacks”?
Be sure to watch part 2, which premieres next week.
