ABOUT ELASMODIVER

BIO OF ANDY MURCH

 

 

WHAT IS ELASMODIVER?

Not just Shark Pictures: Elasmodiver contains photos of sharks, skates, rays, and chimaera's from around the world. Elasmodiver began as a simple web based shark field guide to help divers find the best places to encounter the different species of sharks and rays that live in shallow water but it has slowly evolved into a much larger project containing information on all aspects of shark diving and shark photography.

There are now more than 5000 shark pictures  and sections on shark evolution, biology, and conservation. There is a large library of reviewed shark books, a constantly updated shark taxonomy page, a monster list of shark links, and deeper in the site there are numerous articles and stories about shark encounters. Elasmodiver is now so difficult to check for updates, that new information and pictures are listed on an Elasmodiver Updates Page that can be accessed here:

The Collection

Limited Edition Shark Image Selection

This gallery of stunning shark images represents more than a decade in the field documenting sharks and rays. Comments and descriptions by the photographer:

 

banded wobbegong shark with bullseyes.

Banded Wobbegong

Captured at Fish Rock on the east coast of Australia, this banded wobbegong which would normally settle upon a mottled broken reef  to avoid detection, was lounging on these purple coral encrusted rocks providing a beautifully contrasting backdrop.

Great White Shark with Sea Lion

Carcharias carcharodon A pin sharp exposure of a white shark's impressive maw. The California sea lion in this image refused to be perturbed by the presence of multiple white sharks and played 'catch me if you can' at the surface for hours. 

 

blue shark archivl print

Cobalt Blue Shark

After a long day in the water off the coast of Catalina Island, this tiny blue shark finally plucked up the courage to come in close and eventually swam circles around me. The back lit position of the sun accentuates its graceful lines.

 

blue shark in emerald green water

Blue Shark in an Emerald Sea

Blue sharks have the uncanny ability to reflect light and exude multiple colours and tones. In stark contrast to its surroundings the light glancing off its torso creates a metallic effect that is accentuated by the emerald back drop.

 

Lemon shark print

Lemon Shark at Twilight

Among the thousands of images that I have of lemon sharks from Tiger Beach, this I believe is the most dramatic. It was captured during the magic hour just before sunset when the sky fills with green fire.

 

blue shark with ragged torn skin

Tough Love

Female sharks have toughened skin on their flanks specifically to cope with the excited approaches of their mates. This torn up blue shark is probably the victim of an over amorous partner.

 

 

Tiger Shark

Tiger Lines

This image is a personal favorite of mine. An adult tiger shark gliding over the sand at Tiger Beach.

 

 

Sharks in Fading Light

Although I have many images of sharks breaking the surface, this image of a lemon shark staring back at me captures the intellect of sharks and dissembles the 'mindless killer' theory.

 

 

 

 

 

Important Information on the use of the Shark Pictures listed in the Shark Pictures Database

These shark images represent many years of work and great expense on behalf of the photographer. Under no circumstances may any of these shark photographs be downloaded or used in any way without the express permission of the photographer. This is a commercial database - that means that all of the images carry a licensing fee.

The BC Marine Life Index

Although the BC Marine Life Index contains some pictures of sharks and rays it was designed to cover a much broader selection of aquatic life from crustaceans and mollusks, to fish, marine mammals, corals and sponges. The life inhabiting the shoreline of British Columbia is second to none in health, color, diversity, size, and abundance.
