Creative Underwater Portraits
Its a special time in your life.. how best do you capture it?
Do you want something different to a traditional Maternity Photoshoot? Getting married? or just that you are looking great and want to celebrate a special time in your life?
Why not consider a professional underwater photoshoot?
Underwater portraits aren’t just pictures they are works of art with you at the very centre, why not treat yourself to something special.
In my first set of photos alone I was blown completely out the park by the images he had taken. The location and setting was beautiful he was professional, fun and easy going.
I literally had the best day of my life shooting with Paul and I cannot wait to go back again. I am an up and coming underwater Model and I genuinely feel like the images Paul has created for me will probably be the start of my career in the water, they are just so professional and HIGH END QUALITY. I can’t thank him enough. #Hero #Legend
Want to know more about underwater photoshoots??
Our relationship starts long before we get in the water, we will have discussed what you want to achieve from the shoot and the sort of style that you like.
The photoshoot takes place in a private pool in Surrey although if you have your own swimming pool we can discuss having the underwater photoshoot at yours!
On the day before we get in the water we go through some basics of posing and breathing so that you will look nice and relaxed and confident during the session.
I have a growing number of outfits for people to choose from which I call my ‘Dress Up’ box which has some lovely dresses, satin material, plus flower crowns. So plenty of choice! I still encourage clients to bring their own choices too.
The sessions themselves are either 1-1’s or small group sessions. Either way you’ll be given plenty of time to have a breather and change outfits. Normally you are only underwater for about an hour in total, but your whole session will be much longer due to your recovery time between sets.
*Please note that Maternity shoots are only conducted on a one to one basis for safety reasons and so that you can move at your own pace*
Each set is around 15 minutes, we talk about the pose that I am looking for (communication underwater is a bit tricky!) and then I submerge. You dont need to be underwater long 10 – 15 seconds is more than enough.
I will, wherever possible, show you the back of the camera so you can see your progress.
Afterwards you will receive your online gallery to peruse the pictures. This is very much just the starting point towards the finished article!
The edits take around 7 days to complete and we can discuss what options you would like for delivery of your work of art.
