Personal pool party

The scariest part of an underwater shoot is the part where you first submerge your camera into the drink. Happily, my cameras stayed warm and dry inside their German, Zip-Loc style housing.

This weekend I collaborated with my awesome team of Kami Bremyer (stylist), Lindsey Williams (make-up), Chris Kitahara (assistant), and Stephanie Foyer (producer) to make a personal piece about great American sadness.

Thanks to the fabulous Chicago Park District and Portage Park pool staff for hosting our afternoon of madness which no doubt confused swimmers and life guards alike.
