Journalists: please email your questions about whale sharks, shark conservation, or underwater photography. I’ll acknowledge receipt within ~24 hours if I’m in the office. I have a large library of whale shark photos available for editorial use or commercial licensing.

Real talk: there will be groan-inducing jokes.
