When Whale Sharks and Models Pose Together

When Whale Sharks and Models Pose Together

When it comes to whale sharks, Shawn Heinrich has been featured before for some of his incredible images. Kristian Schmidt, a fashion photographer who loves using wildlife in his shoots, recently teamed up with Shawn for an ambitious fashion shoot with the harmless sharks.

Working with several great models and some lighting help, the team captured an incredible sense of grace and beauty swimming with the gentle giants.

Beautiful

 Hahahahahahahahaha, man, you kill me! Don't know when was the last time I laughed so hard, hahaha!

Great job by these guys and major props to the models.

Shark and a model and you don't recreate the Jaws cover?? :/

beautiful pics none the less tho :)

Great idea but the images are of terrible quality. Especially the second last one. It looks completely  fake. The only one worth viewing is the first one. How do images of this quality keep getting published ?

Web Compression?

wooooowwwww que zarpado!!! 

It's a shame these admittedly lovely images are doing little to help the plight of an already imperiled species. It may not seem like much, but the making of these will have done untold ecological damage.

C'est la vie, yet another quandary of how our artform impacts the world around us.

Stupidest idea ever.... looks completely retarded.

Here is a better idea... do same but with white or bull sharks.  Then it would be art :)

What a well trained shark. Terrific job.
