Fun story, during the filming of this video for OrcaTorch we actually came face to face with a GREAT WHITE SHARK!
We were scuba diving in Forster, north of Sydney, Australia at the Pinnacle, which is a dive site about 20 minutes by boat into the ocean, there are no rocks/ headlands or any other formations around the dive site. Just open, dark blue water. There were 6 of us and as we jumped in the water my buddy had some ear troubles, so we hung around the 10meter mark while his ears adjusted to the pressure (the other 4 divers continued on their dive). As we sat at around 10 meters deep for a few minutes, we could see nothing below us except the dark blue water fading to black, and there was nothing on either side of us but blue water. The second his ears equalised we continued down, and BAM! Out of the shadow emerged a wild GREAT WHITE SHARK! What followed this was honestly a sequence from Jaws. Men scrambling for the safety of the boat above, surfacing with one eye on the Great White below, and the other on the boat, yelling at the captain to get us out of the water. Not my finest moment, but an epic tale that has left a huge impact on me. Needless to say, we went back in the water about 45 minutes later for our next dive! I'm not sure how I got any footage as I spent the whole time looking behind me!
Anyways an epic dive trip, and we got some great footage filming with OrcaTorch's New D900V video lights! This isn't a paid video, the lights were honestly such a treat to film with and I will be using them from now on in all my underwater videos! They're the most powerful video light I have filmed with and the colour they bring back into the footage is phenomenal!
