The Ophelia Submerged series has been going since 2008. At it’s heart it’s romantic imagery of young women in long flowing garb and/or fabrics, in the water. It was a study of the insidious romance of betrayed innocence (Ophelia was, after all, abandoned by her lover, her brother, her father, then ultimately, betrayed by the Queen, who did nothing to stop her suicide!).
Over the years, the theme has expanded, evolved and mutated into something so broad that you can make your own mark and bring something different to the set, should you wish to do so. We’ve shot girls in their teens and women in their fifties. Tall, short, tiny, plus-sized… we’re always looking for variations to play with and expand the scope and diversity of the theme. there is no limit on romance.

Typically in a fresh-water lake or river near Victoria BC, Canada
From now until the middle of September. We typically shoot early-ish morning, to avoid potential crowds in the public parks
How Long Will This Take?
I try to book a four-hour time-slot, factoring in travel time and preparations. Time in the water is usually between 90 minutes and two-hours.
What to Bring:
ᴑ The wardrobe you’re going to wear
ᴑ Accessories (Jewelry, hats, parasols, fabrics, anything else you can think of!)
ᴑ Sandals or water-shoes (many of the streams are rocky and lake-beds can be muddy)
ᴑ A towel & a change of dry clothes
ᴑ A garbage-bag (for the wet stuff, after)
ᴑ Sun-screen & bug-spray (if you think you might need it)
This is neither a paid nor paying shoot. In exchange for signing a model release form, you will be formally licensed to use the images as you wish.
