Shark "Photo of the Year" Is E-Mail Hoax

Maxwell said that he "cheated a bit" to get the photo. Though he has seen as many as ten breaches in a single morning, it is difficult to predict where a shark will be seen. So he towed a seal decoy made of carpet behind his boat, in order to attract a breaching shark.

Maxwell has worked with National Geographic several times. He was a production facilitator for the April 2000 white sharks story in National Geographic magazine and the television documentary made that same year. Most recently, he assisted David Doubilet and Kennedy Warne on the South Africa story in the August 2002 issue of National Geographic magazine.
