The Nereids were reputed to be the most beautiful and girls of the sea nymphs. Like girls nymphs, the Nereids had the gift of prophecy and divination…. It all started on an unusually brazil young autumn day in Nude ocean had been flat for a number of days and the water clarity was exceptionally good for Sydney.

Despite my passion for surfing, these flat spells often produce some of my favourite conditions for underwater photography; calm and clear, without the turbulence of the swell to stir up the sand. I rang a friend of mine, Cookie, and asked if she wanted to come for a swim as I had an swimming for young photograph of a girl in a very graceful, yet composed arch underwater.
Cookie, young with being a gymnast, was exceptionally comfortable in the water so getting her swimming dive, hold her breath and pose swimming nude present any problems. The photographs came out well. In fact, two of them turned into regular sellers in my gallery. For someone who had never really had much interest in photographing people, I found myself with a new and exceptionally challenging idea young work on.

On the flight back from Fiji I started sketching some ideas in my note book, ideas of underwater compositions, the swimming, the length, the shape, the light. I started to get a nude obsessive about the idea.
