Nigel's Photo Gallery

An exciting selection of images personally selected by Nigel, including exclusive shots available nowhere else in the world.


South Africa, May 2003: Nigel manoeuvres to get closer to a twelve-foot tiger shark.

Although the crew were in Africa to film for Nigel’s forthcoming Bull Sharks show, they took the opportunity to shoot some incredible close-up footage of tiger sharks as well. These beautiful marine predators are thought to be amongst the most dangerous of all sharks, and are known for their ability to swallow an incredible array of objects, including beer bottles, bags of potatoes, coal, dogs and (rarely) humans. However, in this case the group of tiger sharks had been studied for several months and were used to swimming with divers virtually every day. Cameraman Mike Pitts joined Nigel to get some truly stunning footage of these graceful creatures circling and investigating their mammalian visitors. The results will be seen when Bull Sharks airs some time in 2004.
