Note from Ken
Apply for classes for 2013 NOW to assure a spot and to aid in advanced scheduling of the 2013 class season. The first classes will probably begin during Spring Break. Classes will be conducted in South Carolina near Myrtle Beach (depending on the course) as soon as the season begins. If you need an important class now, you will have to arrange it in Florida if possible.
Ken is currently doing video work. He is available for consultation on field research for the 2013 season. Contact him immediately for 2013 winter and spring research help. Ken is currently testing more shark repellents.
The 2013 season is looming closer and Ken's scheduling for it has begun. He is bidding jobs for large sharks for delivery to other countries.
Film and television:
Call for booking for shooting, wrangling or training in 2013 now. PLEASE, BOOK KEN NOW or at least discuss availability before the season begins. Priority scheduling is on shark collection due to limited availability of some species he is planning to collect this year. Ken is always interested in pay television jobs and feature film work. Contact him for rates. Just remember that the projects involving sharks need to be planned well in advance of the season (SUCH AS NOW). If not, it can result in a year's delay in getting the desired shot. Producers and casting directors can book Ken now before his schedule fills. Please, contact him for availability for your project. See the producer page for more details. Priority goes to the earliest booked dates. No booked date will be broken.
Ken is working on a Survival Fishing
Video project, Survival Fishing: When Your Life Is On the Line©. No
release date is set on that. He is shooting some out of season pieces for
his YouTube Channel. He is also posting a few more small clips or bites
for display on that channel shortly. Ken is also adding a series of Summer 2013 videos
on Marine and Beach related emergencies and First Aid. He hopes to have
these available before 2013 Spring Break. These are great for
families on vacation as well as researchers. They will be posted on
Check out his channel, TheSharkWrangler. If you are documentary field crew in the Carolinas, contact Ken now for work.
Ken's work as an animal wrangler can be seen in the Barry Levinson film, The Bay. Check out the film at IMDB.com (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1713476/).
Tours and Shark
fishing guide work:
No Safaris are scheduled at this time for 2013. However, Ken is booking dates for ride alongs and kayak trips. Contact him now to book an open date.
Search and Rescue:
Ken has resumed teaching Emergency Diving. He is conducting courses in tactical search and rescue, basic water rescue and his original courses of Emergency Diving: First ResponseŠ and Non-emergency RecoveryŠ (for Fire, Rescue, Public Safety and Law Enforcement SCUBA programs). He is available for in-house training locally or can travel to present these at your request. Warm weather is the best time for the water rescue and SCUBA classes due to warmer water and general safety during tech diving evolutions! BOOK NOW. (NOTE: These are technical SCUBA courses and ARE NOT endorsed by PADI or taught by Ken as a PADI OWSI!) Contact Ken for a full list of the SAR workshops and courses that he offers.
Early scheduling and requests for projects are recommended. Ken will accommodate your scheduling needs, but, prior commitments are commitments. Please, contact him before you plan your project completely. 24hr advance notice is not enough time to relocate unless you supply transportation, reservations and sufficient compensation. If it is an emergency, Ken will do everything possible to help you.
