Whilst on a trip to Shetland, the biggest thing I wanted to do was photograph the Gannets as they feed underwater. Gannets hunt fish by diving into the sea from a height of 30 metres and can achieve speeds of up to 100 km an hour as they hit the water in pursuit of their food. The photography takes place at sea around some of the Shetland’s remotest headlands. Dead bait is used using fish the Gannets would normally eat, locally sourced around Shetland. To be able to capture what goes on under the water was an unbelievable experience.
