"Sharks at Night" by Joe Romeiro

 

 

Can’t get enough about Sharks after Shark Week? Join us next meeting with Joe Romeiro who will give us an amazing talk about Sharks. If you like diving with sharks in the day, step it up a notch and take the plunge at night!.. Come and Learn the techniques and challenges of filming sharks at Night. Joe will give us a first-hand look at diving with this creatures at night and show footage he has taken of Lemons, Tigers, Oceanic Whitetips, and Great Hammerheads all while diving at night Growing up in and around the water, Joe Romeiro developed a love for the ocean at a young age. After seeing his first shark when he was just 5 years old, he has been captivated by them ever since.

A self-taught filmmaker, he founded 333 Productions in 2007 with fellow producer & shark conservationist Bill Fisher. Since then, 333 Productions has created four award-winning films, "Silent Requiem", "Death of a Deity", "A Lateral Line" and "Shark Culture". Most notable awards received include: the prestigious Blue Ocean Film Festival's "Best New Filmmaker" and "Best New Cinematographer" in 2009, ADEX "Underwater Video of the Year Award" in 2010, and the "Ocean Inspiration Award" in 2011, awarded by a panel of esteemed judges and industry professionals in a video competition sponsored by Celine Cousteau, honoring the life of her Grandfather, Jacques Cousteau.

As Joe pursues his quest to travel the world to capture the images of sharks in ways that no one else has, he portrays them as beautiful creatures that are an important and critical element of our oceans eco-system. He has worked with renowned film and television media industry professionals, marine biologists and shark behaviorists to bring to light little known shark actions and activities that astound audiences worldwide, bringing that enduring and indelible 333 Productions touch.

His mission: to protect sharks by educating and dispelling the myths surrounding them through film and through personal interaction. A member of the Explorers Club and Ocean Artists Society, his work has been featured on Discovery Networks, National Geographic, BBC, Shark Week and various other T.V. productions.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
