Photographer Ties Model Down Under Water to Create Strangely Stunning “Shark Shepherd” Image (VIDEO)

We’ve written about photographer Benjamin Von Wong and his wild photo shoots before but this is one of the odder ones he’s done. It also resulted in a beautiful series of photos that look incredibly difficult to pull off.

In the below video, Von Wong creates a surreal photo shoot underwater with a tied down model surrounded by swimming sharks. The idea was to showcase how sharks are the unacknowledged “shepherds of the sea” and promote a petition started by Von Wong that seeks to put an end to the illegal shark fin trade.

Check out the video below and learn more about how it was done on Von Wong’s website.
