Georgia Raffan Interviews Kay
1) Have you ever done an underwater pole shoot before?
Yes I did my first underwater shoot on the Pole Passion camp in Spain in 2011
The water was freezing !!
How did this shoot compare?
My first shoot was amazing because it was something that had never been achieved before and I love pioneering pole fitness in different situations
My love of water, my desire to be a synchronised swimmer and it was something that had never been done before was an added bonus and that it was achieved with the portable RPOLE
This recent shoot was more organised
There were more taking part and above all we had a professional camera man enabling a 90 minutes shoot rather than a 15 minute shoot
2) Did you have specific moves planned for the shoot?
I had certain ideas but like with all my shoots I tend to have more than required outfits and love the freestyle and inprovision of the shoot
3) Do you feel the Water made it harder or easier to achieve poses? Why?
The water was certainly a challenge but for me whilst the moves were easier to accomplish it was harder in the sense you had the challenge of controlled breathing going upside down and I opted to do it without goggles and a nose clip
So more than often it went up my nose making it extremely uncomfortable
4) Do you feel happy with how the shoot went?
Yes the shoot went very well
5) If you do another underwater photo shoot what would you change?
I would research underwater eyelash glue !!
My false eyelashes fell off within the first 10 minutes and I would research underwater lipstick too - any offers??
6) What preparation would you suggest for somebody looking to do an underwater photo shoot who hasn't done one before?
Chose dark colours
Pale colours don't look as striking underwater
Go for flowing material
Take your time
Dare to be different
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I'd like to thank the photographer Radek Gora for his patience and bringing his underwater equipment to make the shoot such a success
