In the past we’ve talked about shooting underwater photos and wanting to experiment with it. These photos are from photographer Steven Taylor with musician Devan DuBois as the pictured subject. These images are a testament to the cool things that can result from experimenting with underwater photography.
I still would love to rent a housing for my Canon 1dmkII or even a cheap film camera and go for a dive into the ocean or a lake.
Can anyone recommend a decent waterproof film camera?
Steven Taylor is a celebrity and music photographer based out of Los Angeles. He grew up in Florida and lived in Nashville, Tennessee prior to making his way to Los Angeles. From there he found connections through his past music endeavors and began shooting for strong names such as Snoop Dogg, Bruno Mars, Edward Sharpe, Incubus, John Mayer and more.
After catching up with Steven and talking about his process he mentioned that even if an assignment requires shooting in digital, he’ll still bring film. That way he can shoot at least one roll to his personal liking. More often than not the film images are the photos that get used anyhow.
Perhaps one of the best parts about his portfolio is that he compiles behind the scenes videos for a select few of his shoots. These type of videos are great; it’s a shame we don’t see them nearly as often and as great as these are. While they aren’t gearhead type of videos, they do really show short and to the point idea of what it would be to work with the photographer.
