9781909911451: Shark Bytes: Tales of Diving with the Bizarre and the Beautiful

The popular image of sharks is of a dorsal fin cleaving the surface as it rushes to its next kill, but this is a limited caricature. There are over 500 species to choose from, most of whom are far more frightened of humans than vice versa. In this beautiful book, diving veteran John Bantin recounts many tales of his diving with several species of sharks and other marine animals over the last 4 decades. Accompanied by his own stunning photography, the captivating, spectacular and sometimes shocking encounters show the reader what it is like to get up close and personal to these bizarre and beautiful creatures. The sharks covered range from the great whale sharks to the small blacktip reef shark, in locations extending to all corners of the globe.

About the Author:

John Bantin's life was transformed when he took some time off from his 25 year long career as a successful advertising photographer and television commercials director to go scuba diving. He learned to dive in 1979 and in 1992 it became his career. He has now spent over twenty years travelling the world, diving in all the best places, and gaining many different experiences underwater (not all of them good) which has furnished him with a vast store of anecdotes. He is known as something of an accomplished raconteur in the diving indutry. During his time he has been Technical Editor of the long-established Diver magazine, and has been regularly published in Undercurrent magazine and DYK.

Review:

"It is a wonderful book to read because John writes in a fun and humorous way about what he has experienced. The stunning photographs make this all complete." (Diver Magazine)

"Stunning close-up photography." (Focus Magazine)

"John's memory for detail is impressive, and he brings many a scene to life with subtle flashes of colour that many writers in this genre are not capable of summoning... every page is packed with amusement as well as insight." (Scuba Magazine)

"A wonderful collection of first-hand encounters with sharks accompanied by compelling imagery." (Dive Magazine)

"This enlightening and inspiring collection of true stories gives you a taste of the magical diversity of the underwater environment from all four corners of the globe." (BBC Wildlife Magazine website)
