More Underwater Fashion & Glamour

19 08 2009

Creating an “underwater studio” and working with models underwater can be challenging, but when it all comes together, the images are unique and beautiful. Most underwater photographers who shoot models all emulate the style of one of the pioneers of this type of photography, Howard Schatz (the man, the legend and my mentor). I see very few unique approaches to underwater photography. I try to go out of my way to create a style that is uniquely my own.  I hope that it is as evident when you browse through my images.

This is another of my favorite glamour images from the first of an ongoing series with a great model (Nelly) and an equally great make up artist (Griselle).

How Do you direct your talent and your grips while submerged? Have you developed a set of hand and arm signals? An illustrated hand signal guide for underwater photogs would be a cool and unique publication!

It is definitely a unique challenge and we do develop some unique communication approaches.

Ironically, there is a really cool and ultra comprehensive book all about underwater hand signals for divers (not model shoots but divers in general). Check it out:
