Underwater Model Training Workshop

This Underwater Model Training Workshop makes it much easier to start you on your underwater modelling path. Our experienced team can give you the right information to not only look amazing but to stay safe as well.

You get to practice techniques that you would otherwise only learn in diving courses, free diving courses and modelling classes and that you would have to link together yourself.

With her experience as a scuba diving instructor, apnea instructor and underwater stunt woman, Katrin Gray has put together an ideal “all-round package” for professional and aspiring models to learn the art of underwater movement and posing. The Underwater Model Training Workshop is designed for both beginners and advanced underwater models and you do not need to be a “model”, per se.

About Underwater Modelling

Underwater modelling is often underestimated because professionals make it look weightless and easy. However, we do not move in our natural element under water. Holding your breath and posing underwater while controlling your buoyancy can quickly become a challenge. In addition, we need to put our body in the right position and relax our face. Furthermore, we have to control our hair and clothing and all this while we are almost blind. On top of that, water is constantly running into our noses and sinuses. In order to get really great pictures, modelling under water should be practiced. This is exactly why the concept for the Underwater Modelling Workshop was created. This will make you a pro in no time.

What will you learn?

During the Underwater Model Training Workshop we will spend some time in the classroom. After the theoretical part, we then carry out the first practical exercises. Later you get into the water where the previously learned techniques can be implemented. Furthermore, you now have the opportunity to shoot with a professional underwater photographer. Of course we will support you every step on the way.

What to Bring

Of course, a good mood is the most important thing of all, so you should bring a good portion of it with you. Also, please bring something to take notes on the course. If available, please take a diving mask or swimming goggles with you. In addition, think about all the things you would pack for a normal visit to the swimming pool and also enough food for the day. You should also bring several clothes and costumes for your shooting (together we will then choose the right outfit for your underwater shoot). Long dresses with many layers of fabric look stunning underwater. If you don’t have a suitable outfit with you, we also have a small selection of costumes available for hire.
