HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Weeks after stunning underwater video of a Hawaii-based shark conservationist swimming with a great white shark surfaced, new photos released by the diver are offering a different perspective of the experience.
Taken by ocean photographer Juan Oliphant, the photos show Hawaii shark conservationist Ocean Ramsey swimming with great whites, as well as whales and stingrays, from several different viewpoints.
The captions on the photos invite viewers to "meet the woman dispelling the myths about one of the world's most feared ocean predators by swimming without protection with great white sharks."
The photos of Ramsey and the great white were taken in waters off of Baja Mexico last year. Ramsey, the photos say, "travels the globe swimming with many species of sharks hoping to prove they are nothing like their Jaws film reputation."
Asked if she's nervous during dives like this, Ramsey told the Huffington Post, "I dive with sharks on a regular basis. So, nervous, maybe not, but excited, pretty much every time."
Ramsey has been diving with sharks since she was 14 and can hold her breath underwater for more than five minutes, she said.
Oliphant, the photographer, said one reason they were able to have those close encounters with sharks is because Ramsey is free-diving, without scuba tanks that create bubbles that can scare and threaten sharks.
Ramsey said she does not come across Great White sharks in Hawaii often, and instead sees Galapagos, Tiger and Sand sharks in island waters.
