Its not everyday that you wake up at 5am to go to your local swimming pool to put on a red dress and do a photoshoot. Now this isn’t particularly unusual for me with some of the photoshoots and short films we’ve done in the past, getting up at the crack of dawn to get the perfect sunrise in the middle of a forest. Least this time it was in a nice and warm building, even with the addition of water.
But this time I did feel a bit of my depth (literally, 3.8m of diving pool depth), with having not stepped foot in a swimming pool since my school days, trying to swim and stay afloat while clothed was a bit of a task. Put it this way, I had to learn to tread water pretty quickly.
I was rather impresses by Mac Ruby Woo surviving at the mersey of the pool, cant quite say the same for the eyeliner as it dribbles down my face.
My partner in crime for this shoot was the brilliant Arthur Godden, who managed to haul himself around in the pool in near full suit not just a small dress (I have a feeling that would have looked odd). He managed some rather impressive flash and photography umbrella holding while treading water, somehow that didn’t get photographed.
Definitely braver than I was when it came to swimming underwater (I need googles :P )
