Oy...your breath smells!

Daredevil photographer Michael Muller snaps one of his jaw-dropping photos as he gets close to one of the world’s deadliest killers.

Michael - who made his name taking pictures of celebs - has now captured the first picture of a great white shark breaching at night.

The photographer has travelled the oceans of the world to capture rare sightings of black tip and sand tiger sharks in South Africa - to great hammerheads in the Bahamas.

Photographer Michael Muller has circled the globe, documenting the lives of sharks.

His new book, “Sharks: Face-to-Face with the Ocean’s Endangered Predator,” is a culmination of that work. 

Muller is best known as a celebrity portraitist and photographer of blockbuster movie posters for the likes of the “Iron Man” and “X-Men” franchises. But even as he was doing this work, the roots of his shark project were taking hold.

“I’d go do ‘Captain America’ in London, and at night time I’d go put shark posters up,” Muller said. 

Known underground as “White Mike,” he slapped up wheat paste posters of photos wherever he went around the globe.

“I wanted people to look up in their cars and see a smiling shark,” he said.

This emotional appeal to recognize the rich lives and varied personalities of shark species is the crux of his book.
