It is not a simple task of making a photoshoot with a free diver in a studio and conditions that have absolutely no connection with a world underwater. It was an absolute pleasure taking such a challenge with a great friend Tijana Nikolic, Serbian free diver and making it a reality. Imagining the ambience she would be in and adjusting it with the conditions and resources that we had at our disposal, was enough. Since our only goal was to make Tijana’s portraits, the task was really an easy one. Good fun and atmosphere during the shoot only contributed that this be just another one of our hangouts.
