Marc Montocchio - getting the Shot!

Winning image by Marc Montocchio

Just got the following e-mail.

If you don't know Marc Montocchio, you should.
He taught us most of what we know about underwater photography and remains our inspiration. Check out this footage of Marc going to shoot the Blue Marlin and getting chased out the water by the sharks! His underwater pics are incredible and he has been published in National Geographic.
Check out his website.

I did and all I can say is WOW!
The guy's got Talent - and one mighty pair of cojones!
As to how one manages to capture the shot, here's a great look behind the scenes - inclusive of a couple of feisty Sharks, possibly Silkies (could however be Galapagos, too). And I concur with Marc: had they managed to get him, it would not have been a case of mistaken identity!

Thanks to the wussy-man for the heads-up!
