I'm no expert, but I think the nose is too pointed for a Bull.

Kinda looks like a silky but dorsal fin looks a little far forward for that. Maybe a copper shark. Outside the usual easily identifiable ones never been very good with the ones that look very similar.

Sandbar Shark. Dorsal fin origin too far forward for Dusky and Snout too long for Bull.

For some reason, it will only upload one at a time. I think the pictures are too big

The main way you ID sharks is position of dorsal fin vs pectoral fins. There's just one shot that shows this, and I think it's a sandbar. Not positive, but that's all I've got to go on.
