Surfers and sharks don't historically have the best of relationships, but that's not to say they can't live harmoniously.

World famous surfer and six times WSL World Champion Steph Gilmore jumped in the water with Nikon surf photographer Clark Little to get up close and personal with a few of these toothy buddies - and learn a bit about underwater photography.

The water here has so much power and beauty. I just love capturing that moment in the ocean, it's incredible

Apart from being a totally stylish surfer, photography is a huge part of Steph's life. In this short video, Steph gets a chance to go behind the lens and learn something new.

The surf in Hawaii just looks awesome - it's definitely got us stoked to try out some underwater photographer ourselves this summer.
