Limited Edition, 1/10

This is the first print (No. 1 of 10) of this iconic underwater image 'Vertical Tonic'. It will be signed and framed. Eddy captures a woman triggering a fascinating phenomenon to a shark. Some sharks can be placed in a tonic state. The shark can remain in this state of ‘paralysis’ for an average of fifteen minutes before it recovers. “Vertical Tonic’ captures the moment that this great shark is rendered helpless by a female diver.

Originally London based, Eddy owned “Studio at 27”, working for magazines such as Vanity Fair to Cosmopolitan and specialized in advertising, editorial and beauty photography in studio and on location, Eddy eventually returned to his passion and to the islands to shoot underwater.

Eddy has shot/filmed for Discovery Channel, NOVA/PBS, Belgian Television, Shark Diver magazine, Sport Diver, Scuba Diving, Germany's Next Top Model with Heidi Klum, and is shooting a new line of German underwear underwater this month, and is producing a short film with writer Omar Smith.

Eddy’s inspiration for this print was the need to showcase the ability humans have to interact with the sharks we have feared for so long. Eddy hopes this image will lead to awe and conservation rather than death and extinction.
