I have an interview and shark photography feature called Shooting Sharks in the current shipping issue of Giant Robot Magazine.
Sometimes, you need a bit of serendipity to get what you want.
I had been a fan of the magazine for some time, but Adam Lau first introduced me to GR editors Eric Nakamura and Martin Wong over email after Adam’s Sea Shepherd feature was published in the magazine. Months later, I was accosted randomly by kozyndan at the Manado airport in Indonesia, and while visiting the two of them in Santa Monica, we bumped into Martin in person over a frozen yogurt near GR headquarters.
I said, “Hey, let’s do a feature on sharks!”
Martin responded, “Let’s do it!”
And so, the interview was born. I’m in talks with GR for more features on marine life and underwater photography — hope they happen!
If you want to see the feature, please support Giant Robot and buy the issue!
