Underwater photography is an incredibly unique and exhilarating experience. Recently, I had the opportunity to shoot a nude underwater portrait session with two women at Cabbage Tree Bay, Manly, and it was an excellent day for them. The conditions were absolutely perfect - a beautiful sunny day with excellent visibility.
But what made this particular shoot truly exceptional was the models themselves. Their ability to effortlessly dive underwater and hold a variety of poses was impressive. When working underwater, it's crucial to look natural and relaxed while holding your breath, swimming and floating - and these models nailed it.
Many people often ask me why individuals choose to do nude underwater photoshoots. In this instance, the models simply wanted to experience something fun and exciting and be photographed totally natural in the water while they were still young and in good shape. It was a great way for them to embrace their bodies and feel comfortable in their own skin, and the images are something they can happily look back on in future.
As a photographer, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of capturing images in such a unique environment. I love working closely with clients to achieve the results they envision, and this shoot was no exception.
Of course, there were some curious onlookers - swimmers who were no doubt captivated by the beautiful marine life in the area that morning. But we were all too focused on the task at hand to pay them much attention.
Overall, the shoot was an absolute blast, and I strive to create the same enjoyable experience for all of my clients. It's not every day that you get to experience the sheer beauty and excitement of an underwater photo shoot, and I feel so lucky to have had this opportunity.
Please contact me if you have questions about underwater portrait sessions. I can do private pool sessions if that environment is preferred.
