Inspiration: Amazing Underwater Photography by Scott Rhea
Scott Rhea’s underwater work is ground breaking to say the least. It seems that over the last few years underwater fashion has followed primarily the ‘black background – model in dress’ method. Scott in the other hand takes a totally different approach:
Scott does not take his underwater shoots lightly. He enlists an army of experts to help him execute his vision. A typical shoot can consist of as many as 50 crew members and require Production Designers, set builders, a Director of Motion Photography, an underwater intercom system, special waterproof make-up, special toxic-free furniture treatment, and of course, models. He works with models of all ages and mentions a 10-year old girl who was so comfortable working with a respirator and staying underwater that they were able to shoot for 30-35 minutes without any of the crew having to come up. Now THAT’s pretty amazing!
