Mermaid photoshoot for Virginia Pilot Interview

I've worked with some pretty incredible mermaids underwater the past 16 years. Most mermaids will know their names. Here is one of them shot during a newspaper interview day in Virginia Beach a few weeks ago.

Model: Nicole Carter

Tech: Hasselblad H5D-50cWiFi with 24mm f4.8 in a custom Nauticam housing made for Christopher Chandler (who so graciously loaned me the housing while he was on some extended work travel). Lighting was by bulletproof and ultra-reliable Ikelite DS-161 underwater strobes. Much of the gear from Reef Photo & Video, Ft Lauderdale, FL. -- with Nicole Carter, Hasselblad, Nauticam USA, Nauticam, Ikelite Underwater Systems and Reef Photo & Video.
