SHOALHAVEN-BASED photo/ film journalist Attila Kaszo returned from Fiji recently with spectacular photos and the tale to go with it.

On assignment filming for a story on a man-made reef, he was at one point surrounded by about 200 sharks.

Among the species were bull sharks, one of the most aggressive.

“One bull shark, about three metres long, took exception to my camera gear,” Mr Kaszo said.

“He came at me with his mouth open and I pushed him away with my arm. 

“He swam around again while I was photographing the other sharks. Then he came up and bit off the GoPro camera I had mounted on top of my other camera.

“It was an instant reaction I just hit him and he dropped it.”
