Shark: Portraits

The extraordinary portraits of some of the largest sharks in the ocean are big, bold and beautiful and provide a fresh photographic story of what it is like to be a top shark.



Big, bold and beautiful, the extraordinary portraits of some of the ocean's largest sharks provide a fresh photographic story of what it's like to be a top shark. In his coffee table book "Shark: Portraits," Mike Coots anthropomorphizes the giant fish, with amazingly detailed and unexpectedly intimate images, filled with the stunning character of each species beautifully revealed.

Mike Coots, who was nearly killed by a tiger shark as a teenager and has since dedicated his life to capturing and sharing the beauty of sharks and their indispensable role in a healthy ocean, gets very close to these magnificent creatures and presents his unique perspective through portraits that reveal both their brawn and their brains. Traveling all over the world (Hawaii, Mexico, New Zealand, the Bahamas and the Maldives), free-diving and deep-sea diving, often without a cage, Coots has captured tigers, great hammerhead sharks, rare oceanic whitetip sharks, lemurs, silvertip sharks, Caribbean reef sharks and enormous great white sharks as long as fourteen feet.
