If you look at the videos on the site they show you how it's done.

Amazingly this type of work is usually done in the sea. The models wear weighted shoes or are fasted to the bottom. They are supplied with air from long hoses by support divers.

As for the cameras they are standard SLRs in underwater housings with underwater strobes. My guess is Nikon or Canon DSLRs.

I just wonder how much money will be spent there. I want to try first a low budget kind of photography. but hopefully i will master that kind of pictures and soon upgrade. hehehehe:G

After seeing your message I did a search on the photographer's name for any other work that he may have done, and found this site below. It is packed with photos of underwater models and links to the photographer's web sites. Its an amazing site!

The underwater housing for the DSLR's cost about as much or more than the cameras do, but you can get an underwater housing for a small point and shoot for around $200. Just be sure you are buying an underwater housing and not an all weather case. The all weather case for say a Canon SD400 is good for about 10', but the underwater housing will get you down to 100' deep. Some digicams have an underwater setting like the SD400, and the flash will still work with the housing. Pretty cheap to get you started.

Very interesting, would like to see the famous Marilyn Monroe pose done under water, that's if it's not been done already.:cool:

I just got an SD450 to use as my point and shoot, and i have seen these all weather cases made by Canon that are guaranteed to like 10ft, but i haven't seen the Underwater housings you referenced. Do you know where i can find those?

"Low budget" are two words I would not like to hear when referring to anything involving scuba.:-)
It is very easy to get hurt without proper training & good equipment http://www.utahdiving.com/medicine.htm

Do you have your PADI or similar dive ticket? Need it if you want to get tanks filled.
