Most underwater photographers don't try glamour photography, but water is a great medium to get an "angelic" floating effect.

Nice !

I love UW model shoots. I find the most difficult part is finding models that are comfortable UW and a saline pool or low chlorine pool to use.

Its a pretty fun option with lots of room for creativity

The underwater snap of the model is awesome!!  I think the more challenging aspect of underwater photography is to have good lighting conditions.

I would post some of my underwater glamour pictures but the NA 'fear of nipples' denies me that opportunity. :(


I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

Well John, I won't make generalizations about North American attitudes towards nipple ((or mammaries in general).  Still some of the most famous nipple come from North America.  The issue is that certain countries, work places etc are sensitive to nudity at the most basic level, even in the UK. But let's not have facts ruin a good joke.  

Like Mike said, all people need to do is add a NSFW to warn people not to open if their IP doesn't allow it. And auto correct doesn't even try to correct it, so even anyone can do it. Any other excuses for not showing nipple john? :)
