About me

Hi, I’m Ryan, also known as the shark guy. My regular stomping grounds are in Southern Africa, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Here you will find me exploring, researching and filming my favourite wildlife, both above and below the ocean surface. Whilst I am passionate about all of earth’s animals and wild places, sharks play a special role for me. For over 20 years I researched and filmed great white sharks and continue to be amazed by this species every day that I spend with them.


Enjoy my site, and always feel free to reach out if you are seeking professional services for your wildlife or shark project, or if you just want to connect and say hi.
