Elephant Fish Expeditions
The Elephant fish is a unique animal that lives most of its life in very deep water ranging in depth from 120-1400 meters. During summer and early autumn this species moves into shallow coastal bays to breed. Fortunately, Western Port Bay in Victoria, Australia is one of the few places in the world that Elephant fish can be encountered in shallow waters. Opportunities to film and photograph elephant fish happen between the months of March and May and Marine Boy Productions have been filming these animals annually for the past decade.
The Elephant fish can be found on sand and weed patches and make great photographic models. At this time of the year these animals are also preyed upon by the large numbers of Seven Gill Sharks that frequent this area. It is possible to film both animals on the same trip.
Marine Boy Productions have led expeditions for some of the world’s best underwater photographers and film makers wanting to film this rarely seen animal. Past clients include multi award winning photographer, Doug Perrine.
Here’s what Doug had to say about his experiences with Rob Torelli:
"Rob Torelli is a skilled waterman and cameraman with a knack for figuring out how to capture the unusual subject and get the shot that hasn't been done before. Working with him has enabled me to add some unique material to my photo library that I would not have otherwise been able to accomplish."
