In episode twenty one, host Brett Stanley chats with underwater photographer Lucie Drlikova in the beautiful city of Prague, in the Czech Republic.
Lucie’s work is a beautiful mix of fantasy, wonder, and perfectly executed concepts. She makes a lot of the set pieces, props, and outfits herself – and combined with her crisp clean post production her underwater images really come to life.
They chat about her travels, finding her love for underwater photography, the celebrity and charity projects she’s been involved in, and a very cool technique for helping her clients relax in the water.
In episode twenty, host Brett Stanley chats with Mary Jeanette Ramsey – choreographer, performer, and Executive Director of The Aqualillies, an American synchronised swimming troupe or Artistic Swimming as it’s now called.
They chat about working on the Cohen Brothers film Hail Caesar with Scarlett Johansson, helping Beyonce to craft an all black synchronised swimming troupe for her visual album Black is King, and how the sport has evolved from the 50’s when Legend Esther Williams made it famous.

In episode nineteen, host Brett Stanley chats with underwater camera operator Braden Haggerty, a Canadian who’s based in Vancouver. Braden has worked on shows like Batwoman, Altered Carbon, Power Rangers, and the recently cancelled Siren – a drama about mermaids with loads of underwater sequences.
They chat about the process of shooting for TV, what she needs to keep in mind for the visual effects, and how training your stunt people for underwater can make the job go so much smoother!
In episode eighteen, host Brett Stanley is joined by Surf and Fine Art Photographer Lucas Murnaghan. Lucas is based in Toronto and as you’ll hear in the interview he runs a surf shop on the edge of Lake Ontario where there’s a decent surfing community!
Lucas talks about shooting surf photos in Lake Ontario and further afield, and how he started to include male portraiture into his work. We chat about the business of Fine art photography, directing male models, and how being gay might change the lens through which your work is viewed.
