In Shark: A Photographer's Story, Jeremy Stafford-Deitsch helps to fill some of these gaps. He presents here the results of three years' dedicated effort to record the appearance and natural behavior of as many different shark species as possible. To photograph sharks in their natural environment he journeyed from the coral atolls of the Red Sea and the South Pacific, to the vast open ocean off Hawaii and the Californian coast, and then on to Florida and the warm tropical waters of the Bahamas.

It also serves as a handbook for divers."
