Some quick thinking was involved for the Tudor Pelagos shoot for Jocks&Nerds Magazine. Ian at FreediveUK was the instigator behind setting up the shoot and a few days before it was scheduled I broke my fibula surfing! We had Mark Milburn’s boat ‘Stingray’ chartered, the representative for Tudor and magazine editor for J&N were booked into local B&Bs, Ian was free to model for the day and we had a weather window. Cancelling wasn’t an option – we had to go ahead!
My next challenge was to construct a new wetsuit as mine wouldn’t fit over my cast. Luckily a friend was throwing out some ex-hire suits so I could fashion my own custom wetsuit. I also employed an extra diver to look after my personal safety, as I had no idea how I would be in the water.
Once we arrived at Mylor harbour we boarded the boat and everything went smoothly. I felt more comfortable in the water than on the boat! I descended t0 10m which was a pleasant surprise and we shot the images that were needed.
Below are the final images used in the magazine. I was also asked to provide an image for a backdrop at the Fine Watch Exhibition ‘SalonQP‘ at the Satchi Gallery in London.
