During a early breakfast with Dave Whiting, owner of Red newt, a conversation came up of creating up a new underwater shoot concept. Dave pondered the idea and after a few minutes he said " what about photographing our dry Riesling underwater, pouring bubbles instead of wine" The idea was born and we took off with it. We made phone calls for talent, hired our stylist and videographer for the creative stuff, rented gear for our end, the photography, made arrangements and set the date. Within 2 weeks we had pulled it all together. We could of taken more time but with colder weather bearing down it was go time. First day we arrived and tested and made some schedule adjustments. Day 2 was all day holding our breath, getting wet, and getting the shots. Now the images and video created will be turned into marketing pieces for Red Newt and promotional pieces for Onion Studio and Justin Bondi Productions.
A fantastic shoot and lots of creative fun.
