RMEA: Underwater Modelling Workshop with Jenna Martin
February 20 and 21, 2016
The girls of OMD4 Makeup & FX were back in Montana working with some familiar faces for Rocky Mountain Entertainment Agency's (RMEA) Underwater Modelling Workshop with Jenna Martin.
Winter weather wasn't about to stop these girls from hopping into the water for the weekend-long workshop. The solution: a private indoor pool with a view of the mountains.
What's the toughest part of doing makeup for an underwater shoot? Olivia Marie said: "Making is last with all of the up and down and in and out of the water. You have to use the right product, something that is not water based. It took me a lot of trail and error to get it right."
The girls of OMD4 Makeup & FX were joined by Edmonton-based photographer, Katherine Kingston who was excited to help Jenna with the underwater shoot for a little on-the-job learning.
Katherine said: "I absolutely loved the opportunity assisting Jenna. Underwater photography is completely out of my element (pun intended)."
Katherine, who studied at the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts, has been shooting professionally since she was 16. She also had the opportunity to schedule some dryland shoots as well.
"I am a terrible control freak, so I was able to create mood boards for each of the girls. Day one was off the cuff, but day two was planned. I really wanted to give the girls something they could practice and incorporate into their modelling," said Katherine.
RMEA model Rylee Klaetsch was the lucky winner of a trip to Greece in June 2016 to model for the Underwater Portraiture Tour organized by Jenna Martin.
