These are my water portraits... ponds, rivers, pools, and even lakes.
Many people request portraits "in" water...
IF you're a swimmer, that's great, if not, then we just work within your limits. Call Annette (814) 392-0623 voice or txt for details and scheduling.
Before you think of posing in water, consider the environment. Your Personal Safety is Important! Frederick and Annette are both unrestricted advanced open water scuba divers. Frederick has been trained and certified as a rescue diver, rescue swimmer, emergency first aid, and "was" a certified EMT. He will make sure you are safe above all else!
Water portraits don't mean that the photography will require diving equipment... nooooo... the light for portraiture is best in 10 feet or less, so if you are a swimmer, or just want to dip beneath the surface, the effect can be fun, interesting and memorable. Free swimming is best, no one really looks good with a dive mask on.
Light transmits, reflects and refracts in so many unpredictable ways... it's never ever the same. Consider an aquatic portrait session, it doesn't cost any more than the same session high and dry. From rainy days to complete immersion, water is just fine with us.
The very instant the shutter closes and the image is stored...
What is captured, is the past.
A photo will never forget and fails to judge or discriminate against the subject
As you are now, in this moment, you will never be again...
