May The Inward and Outward Woman Be As One

THIS PHOTOGRAPHER CREATES EPIC UNDERWATER ROOMS IN HIS BACKYARD

Wednesday, July 24, 2019
I  thought those epic underwater images of fashion models were ALWAYS photoshopped or at least  digitally enhanced, until I stumbled across this extraordinary photographer, Brett Stanley.   




Brett builds super intricate sets from scratch. The rooms, the props, the lighting, camera and the models are all submerged into water where he does an underwater photoshoot, in his scuba wear. The shoots are very challenging but the results are stunning.  








Brett on why he wouldn't just digitally enhance the photos.

Being an Underwater Photographer I’ve always been drawn to creating dreamscapes below the surface, it’s just part of the allure for me, and trying to build a whole room underwater was one of the goals I’d set myself quite a while ago.
Having been a primarily traveling photographer meant that I didn’t have a proper studio in which to experiment, but that all changed last year when I built my own Underwater Studio at my home in Long Beach, California. 
Having an underwater studio at my house meant that I could spend days experimenting with all sorts of crazy ideas that had been percolating in my soggy brain over the years, one of which was “the sunken room.”
