Montreal-based photographer Benjamin Von Wong is known for his complex productions and very stunning powerful images.
He has a track record of using drama in his photographs, turning models into seemingly otherworldly creatures that can make the viewer’s jaw drop in an instant.
It really shouldn’t come as any surprise, then, that he successfully managed an amazing and incredibly difficult underwater photoshoot.
Yet the results are completely out of this world.
On his blog, Von Wong claimed that he had been dreaming of doing another underwater shoot since his first one, but wanted to take it to a completely different level.
Instead of shooting in a pool, he planned to take photos in a shipwreck. He was by no means a trained diver and didn’t have a dive certification, but he felt he was a strong enough swimmer and had enough underwater photography experience to make the production work.
So, while on a vacation in Bali, he picked out a crew of experienced divers, underwater photographers, and free divers and set up a photoshoot 25 meters under the ocean in an old sunken shipwreck off the coast.
