From his beautiful and informative books, Shark: a Photographer's Story (Sierra Club Books, 1987) and Red Sea Sharks Trident Press, 1999), there are few shark enthusiasts who are not familiar with the work of Jeremy Stafford-Deitsch. He is also the author/photographer of Reef (Sierra Club Books, 1991), which has been praised by numerous book, art, and photography critics as a work of stunning photographic artistry, and is presently working on a new book about Caribbean sharks.
Stafford-Deitsch is the undisputed Karsh of Sharks, capturing not only their appearance, but also their environment and individuality with flawless technical skill, subtle naturalistic lighting, and a splendid sense of composition. A fine and observant underwater naturalist, Stafford-Deitsch writes about his underwater subjects with a unique blend of understanding, sensitivity, and hard-won personal experience. I am delighted that he has offered use of his gorgeous images to add to the informational content and visual impact of this website.
Jeremy Stafford-Deitsch is a long-time patron of The Shark Trust, a U.K.-based, non-profit organization dedicated to shark conservation. In appreciation of his generosity, I hope you will visit the Shark Trust's website and support its causes in whatever capacity you can.
