Underwater Fashion Shoot!

I stumbled upon this article on the dailymail website and couldn't help but be amazed! This fashion shoot shot by famous US photographers Shawn Heinrichs and Kristian Schmidt is by far one of my favourites from the past few years! Models Hannah Fraser and Roberta Mancino took the plunge into the tropical waters of the Philippines swimming up to 25-feet-deep and posing alongside 30-foot whale sharks on this 5 day shoot.
