Shawn Heinrichs – Conservationist and film maker, commenting on the making of ‘Tigress’.
“In order to pull off a shoot like this we need to assemble probably one of the most capable (shark diving) teams in the world, and the starting point is Jim Abernethy.
Jim Abernethy has been working with these animals for two decades now. There’s nobody in the world that has more time and experience interacting with, not only the species, but also these specific animals.
These sharks actually appreciate affection and they wanna connect with us, so much so that they prefer that over food.”
