Hey Crew,

So i've been insanely busy with pool shoots. I'm basically shooting as many models as I can to find those special few who can work underwater.

This week i've been lucky and scored three brilliant and talented models who could all work underwater.

NB* also be aware that i'm trying to learn how to produce graphics in photoshop so excuse the overboard lighting effects etc.

no 2

no 3- this was shot against a white sheet with two off camera strobes aimed behind the model to give it the blown out effect

no 4 - excuse the large size but I just coudlnt help myself

no 5-

no 6
