I am a professional photographer based in Southern California. This channel is mainly about my drone captures above the ocean. My latest shark documentation efforts are to educate and provide information about marine life from an aerial perspective. I'm NOT a marine biologist or naturalist. I encourage independent verification of facts via scientific channels. I will strive to post citations for any information I discuss on USlikes whenever possible. My goal is to use photography and drones to bring awareness to wildlife and the nature around us. I welcome collaborations with scientists whenever possible to bring cinematic elements to the educational presentation.

Follow me on Instagram @themalibuartist or visit my business website for more information. I'm also the aerial photographer for, a non-profit marine protection and education advocate based in Hawaii and California.

    You didn't even take your drone down to try and warn him. Better footage for you I guess. Then you can knock one out to a shark eating someone.

    Amazing Channel!! How big are these sharks that come this close to the beach? They look like young animals? A lifeguard in malibu once told me that only youngsters come so close to the beach? Thank you!!

    Great video! But there isn't a man alive that has a clue about millions of years ago so please sound more intelligent in the future and not talk about something no man can know about being millions of years ago!

    Do communities that live alongside shark populations utilise drones in this way to protect swimmers and the animals? If not, they should.

    Doubt you will catch a predation on sea lions or seals near shore, white sharks ambush there prey from below usually so some depth is required. Perhaps a place with a serious drop off and a seal colony would be a more likely spot to catch a predation.

    I certainly applaud you alerting others and prompting a greater awareness. I'd never wish this on you, what if you were documenting a shark and it decides to charge? I imagine that's an awful poition to be in.

    WOW !!! I hope you showed them the video so they know your not "Pulling their foot"! I never realized how useful a drone could be sighting Sharks. I wonder if the Tuna fishermen are putting them to use, as i know they often use spotter planes for that purpose and I'm sure its not cheap.

    I’ll never forget the time I came face to face with a bull shark. I couldn’t believe how fierce this killing machine looked up close!! I saw attack in its eyes, it saw dinner in mine. I had little time to react, so I went with my gut, angled to the right , and moved on to the stingray exhibit!!

    I wonder if refraction could explain the shark seemingly aiming in the wrong direction when breaching. Maybe he was actually aiming for the drone.

    Just a theory but i believe not all sharks prefer to swim so close to the surface. Either one may be more aggressive as well.

    I think you're giving these sharks too much credit... it's reacting to a four limbed creature on the surface of the water as it swims upward to attack it; unfortunately for the shark, it could only see the dark shadow of the drone and doesn't know that it's not truly in the water.

    The stingray was probably something the shark has never seen before and could've simply been only a little curious about it.
