the struggle ballet

I have to give lots of credit to both the model Jannah and Lindsay Adler who helped set this shoot up. She booked the model and got this awesome red wig for her to wear, then I got the chance to shoot with her. I had another model there (will release those pics later) so I got lots of shots that day. As usual, the water was achingly cold but they were troopers and managed dunks underwater for myself and Lindsay. It was such a good day....long, with hours of driving and hiking, but totally worth every minute.


Underwater photography never gets old for me. It is also surreal in the sense that we shouldn't be able to see under there and yet now it is possible. It really is a new world, completely unnatural to us. And as always, the human form looks beautiful...glowing...under the water.


I've just announced my European workshops :-D


Model: Jannah Roy
