Ilse Moore is an underwater portrait photographer based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her work is dark and dramatic, with an amazing use of colour and lighting.
In this episode, Brett chats to Ilse about working in her underwater studio, how she creates the images she's known for, and what drives her to keep exploring. They discuss the challenges of building your own equipment, working with clients vs experienced underwater models, and how hard it is to convert feet in to meters in your head (2m = 6.5ft, by the way).

We chat about what it’s like to build your own underwater equipment, mobile swimming pools, how to get the best out of your models, and what it’s like shooting portraits with a fisheye lens!
