Urchin Rock photographer Zena Holloway captures truly magical photographs of babies - underwater! Underwater photography sessions available in London on 18 April and 11 June, West Sussex 28 May, Yorkshire 5 August, San Diego 14 May, New York 10 July, and many more.
"If the best poolside snapshots you have of your children involve armbands, goosebumps and an unhappy grimace, just take a look at Zena Holloway's wonderful images. These water babies - not simply by the water but under the surface - paddle, swoop, dip and dive like cherubic dolphins. Eyes are open, hair floats and backs are curved...", Westside Magazine, July 2005.
Zena Holloway has been photographing babies and children underwater for over ten years. With the demand rapidly increasing for her unique underwater images, Zena and her partner Patrick Griffith created their company, Urchin rock. They have recently launched a new website (http://www.urchinrock.com) and invested in state-of-the-art equipment.
At the age of 18 Zena became one of the youngest ever fully qualified (PADI) scuba diving instructors. She is completely self taught, photographing divers, babies and young children swimming underwater. Since then her highly acclaimed Urchin rock images of babies underwater have featured across a wide range of media campaigns including the front cover of The Radio Times, Paris Match, The National Enquirer and the BBC Human Body series.
Zena has continued to teach three additional photographer's in her own unique underwater skills and Urchin rock have quickly gone on to establish themselves as the UK's leading professional underwater photographers.
Urchin rock hold regular underwater photo shoots in London and the South East and undertake private commissions. They also travel throughout the UK and America photographing babies and young children for some of the best Swim Schools. Attending an underwater photo shoot costs £40, and parents can buy as few or as many pictures as they like after viewing them online. A unique login code guarantees security and prints start at £14, large canvases at £200 and greeting cards are £36 for 12 cards.
Lucy, Dave and daughter Finn Bird were so excited with their underwater images and explained, "Thank you so much for organising this unique opportunity. I think the photos will give us far more pleasure than any shot with the baby lying on a sheepskin rug!"
Currently Urchin rock hold about 70 shoots a year in the UK and America, and amazingly no one else is doing it, even in the States. As baby swimming becomes increasingly popular, so does the demand for Urchin rock's truly unusual and magical images of babies - underwater!
