The Shark Dancer

Pictured here – behind the shark, in case you didn’t get any further than that – is Alex Ruiz. Alex is one of finest documentary videographers and underwater photographers working today, and I was lucky to get the chance to shoot side-by-side with him while in Belize.

I will be honest – I had a bit of a tough time keeping up.

A great way to get the most out of your time underwater is to take the PADI underwater photography course, and then supplement what you’ve learned in that intro session with an in-depth, one-on-one educational experience with Alex. Based in Cozumel, Mexico, Alex teaches his underwater photo and video courses about anywhere the water is salty.

You can even arrange to have Alex show you how to dance with sharks on the Belize Barrier Reef as part of a Blackbird Caye Resort holiday – which I can honestly say was one of the best travel experiences of my life.
