As a guideline, the average investment starts at around $1500, and goes up from there.
My purpose-built private underwater studio is near the Noosa River in Queensland (Australia). My clients come here from the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and even from interstate. Noosa is a world famous seaside/beach resort, and well-worth the journey.
Only a few seconds at a time, with plenty of rest in between.
I coach you with breathing techniques, and work with you at your own pace. The aim is to have you as relaxed as possible, and to have fun along the way—this is how your portraits end up looking so effortless.
What often happens, as you become more comfortable during your photoshoot, is that you’ll be able to stay underwater for longer and longer… you’ll probably surprise yourself!
The photoshoots are Monday to Friday, usually in the mornings.
I can sometimes do shoots on Sundays by special arrangement (and with a small surcharge).
As long as needed, but generally you’ll be with me for half a day, including 1-2 hours in the water. I limit my schedule to one photoshoot per day, and I don’t set any fixed session duration. Why? So you get the attention you deserve, and you never feel rushed. We all have nerves in front of the camera, that’s natural. And none of my new clients have ever done an underwater shoot before. Feeling comfortable and confident while becoming familiar with the underwater process might come quickly to you… or it might take a bit of time. I give you that time, and the results are worth it.
I sure do! My studio’s private dressing room has a vast wardrobe of dresses, skirts, wraps… in endless colours to mix and match. All the fabrics were chosen for the dreamy way they move underwater.
Yes, I photograph nudes, implied nudes, and boudoir/lingerie.
It’s a friendly all-female team: photographer, makeup artist, and pool assistant. We understand women because we are women. You’ll feel safe and comfortable.
Most definitely. As a professional photographer, I hold public liability and professional indemnity insurances.
Hell yeah! I’m a shameless sissy when it comes to cold water… and I suspect you might be, too 😉
Yes, my assistant and I both hold current Blue Cards.
You should schedule your shoot no later than 10 weeks prior to needing your final artwork in hand. Note that my calendar fills quickly, and I’m usually booked out 2 months in advance, so don’t hesitate for too long. Besides, the earlier you book your shoot date, the more time you have to prepare 🙂
