We believe children should know how amazing they are and what better way for them to see this than in an underwater photograph? We have seen countless children beam with pride at their own sense of achievement when they see their photographs and realise how clever they really are.
Children of this age are easy to photograph underwater as they take directions easily. Some bring along a favourite toy or a costume (fairy wings are popular) to make the session even more memorable.
On the day we take a variety of underwater and poolside shots to ensure you get a range of choices and images to choose from. You may prefer a shot of the whole family, or just the child alone, a parent and child together, or perhaps a picture of the siblings having fun. Whatever your choice we have a creative team of people working together to make the shoot enjoyable.
It is our belief that forced submersion should never be inflicted on any child at any time and especially not for the purpose of a getting a photograph. Therefore our shoot is only open to children who are currently attending swimming classes with us and are happy to be underwater.
Underwater Shoots run once per term and are held at The Phoenix School. The cost of participating in a 30-minute shoot is £35. Images are bought separately directly from the photographer, to view their full gallery for Underwater Art please go to www.underwater-art.co.uk
There are at least two photographers on every shoot, one in the water and one on poolside. During the 30-minute slot you will continuously rotate around them as they capture plenty of images to build up your portfolio. This portfolio is then loaded to a client viewing area online one week later.
