Shifting attitudes through Imagery
The age old adage, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ helps to illustrate the power of imagery, which can be used as a tool in conservation. An image can very quickly stir an emotive response and communicate with the viewer in a way that words cannot, inspiring and motivating individuals to take action.
The Shark Trust strongly believes in making conservation accessible and engaging by using methods that compliment science and trigger public interest. Often the only exposure to sharks many people have is through the media, which tends to sensationalise shark attack stories, spreading fear and hysteria. However, the Trust is very lucky to have a number of freelance photographers who support our work by generously donating their shark images - these have been used to counteract the malicious reputation of the shark by unveiling the beauty of this animal and highlighting their vulnerability.
In 2007 and 2009 the Shark Trust also held a shark photography competition titled ‘Sharks in Focus’, which was hugely successful. We received an astounding volume of stunning shark images which have been used throughout the website and in our promotional material. We also have a touring shark exhibition comprising 35 stunning images from the winners of Sharks in Focus 2009, which has appeared at Shark Trust events and public exhibitions in aquariums throughout the UK.
