Nude Underwater Photo Shoot

For more than 4 years I’ve hoped that one day I will be able to take my photography under water. Three years ago I already completed my Open Water Divers License knowing that the day will come that I will need it. Ever since I have been searching for both opportunities as well as the budget to invest in the equipment needed to turn this dream into reality.

Last Thursday was my first underwater shoot. In reality it was more like my first ‘test drive’ of this new world below the surface. It still has many obstacles and challenges to overcome, however today I am more determined than ever to explore this much further. As I said before, the more I paint the more I leave unpainted… well, the same is certainly true about the more photos I take...

I would like to sincerely thank Artemis and Sage, the two very brave and willing models I worked with. They were just incredible and we had so much fun that tree hours felt no longer than 30 minutes.

Thought I have not even touch the bottom of the mountain I plan to learn, I do have a few images I decided to share in a slideshow. (Unfortunately the quality of the clip is not very good, so please use some imagination!)

Antoine, I Love the underwater shoot with Sage, and Artemis. I am a water lover myself, and I would love to see more work of yours in and around the water.

All the Best, Michael

Cool! I'm glad you finally got this opportunity (after it didn't come together in Utah, like I'd hoped). I'm also glad Artemis got the opportunity.

So beautiful! They are wonderful photogrpahs by themselves, but what beautiful watercolor paintings they would make as well. Thanks for posting.
