UNDERWATER

ARIZONA UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHER

I am one of the only Arizona portrait photographers to do underwater sessions, a unique type of session where you & me both submerge underwater and take artistic and unique portraits which are becoming more popular as more people learn about them. I also have been doing underwater sessions for over 5 years, so I have a lot of experience with this specialized type of photography. I do many different types of underwater photography including:

  • Underwater Save the Date/Engagement sessions
  • Underwater Trash the Dress/ Rock the Dress/Wedding Day After portraits
  • Underwater Senior & Prom Photography
  • Underwater Maternity Photography
  • Select commercial projects

Underwater portraits allow such creative freedom that the possibilities are endless! You do need to know how to swim, open your eyes underwater & be comfortable underwater, but you don’t need to be able hold your breath a long time. I guide you through everything during the shoot and shoot in shallow pools so there is no risk to you. Look through my portfolio & recent underwater sessions, read about underwater sessions & contact me if they seem like they are the right fit for you!

FAQ

WHAT? UNDERWATER? HOW DOES THAT WORK?
Yes! It’s really underwater. We shoot in pools. I have a special (very expensive) case for my DSLR that allows me to have full access to the controls and shoot underwater. My clients & I both hold our breath and go through each pose sequence several times so we have the shot nailed!
WHY ARE YOUR UNDERWATER SESSIONS MORE EXPENSIVE?
Underwater photography is a one of a kind, unique art that takes much more time and experience and gear than a normal session. There are very few photographers in the world who do underwater portrait photography. Not only is there much more time and specialized skill & gear involved, but with each underwater session I do, I run the risk of flooding my camera, thus I have to pay higher insurance costs not only for my gear but for liability insurance as well.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE A POOL TO HAVE THIS TYPE OF SESSION?
I have access to several pools, so if you don’t have your own pool, I will find one. Depending on the time of year, there may be an additional rental fee if the pool needs to be heated.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR UNDERWATER SESSIONS?
ABSOLUTELY! Especially to Hawaii, the Bahamas, California, Florida, Cancun…. 😉
