I am by no means a professional model. I consider myself quite gangly and goofy to tell you the truth. But when my sister wanted to start an Instagram account called ChottoTwinz to showcase our side love for fashion and underwater talents, I thought why not, this seemed like a creative outlet to break up the monotony of everyday life.
The best part about doing these underwater shoots is that it is a first time for everybody. Me, my sister and our dear friend, Mike Struna, who took all of these photos, risked $1000s of dollars of photographic equipment getting wet and to top all of that, he couldn't swim!
Fun/near-drowning occurrences aside, it has been a great experience with wonderful feedback and has generated new ideas for the future - suspended floating witches and afro mermaids anyone?
