“I was going to actually go for a surf that morning but it was pretty flat, so I pulled my Mavic 2 Pro out of the car to do a beach run. I found this large bait ball of Australian Salmon and followed it for a while. Then from what appeared to be out of nowhere, this shark glided in from the deep, and I tracked it for about 20 minutes. The Salmon always kept that exact distance from the Shark. Apparently, there is a family of Grey Nurse sharks that live around the headland, and this was one of them. It is Avoca Beach, on the NSW Central Coast, winter.  I’ve always wanted to film a shark around a bait ball, and lucked onto this one that day. I didn’t end up surfing that day either :)”

“I had planned to go with a friend Sam to japan in March but that was just as COVID hit and our international plans were cancelled but we went to Queensland instead, which was great to holiday at home to explore more of Australia. This photo was taken on a day we hired a car and explored the waterfalls around Cairns. It was shot with the Mavic 2 Pro in raw which I used to bring out the great colours.”
