Underwater Bodypainting at Clothes Show Live with photographer CAndice for Fresh 2O Charity.

Last week I was painting for three days at the Clothes Show live at Earl's Court. I was there as part of a fund raising and PR event for water charity Fresh 2o. Fresh 2o is run by Oscar winning photographer Candice who has found an excellent way to use her amazing photography skills to raise funds for this worth cause. Take a moment to check out thier website

A huge including celebrity stylist Arabella Boyce, Celebrity Hairstylist Michael Barnes, Make-Up Artists Hannah Wing and Anne Marie Simak and myself bodypainting worked our way through a veritable parade of celebrities and personalities from all walks of life creating amazing looks for them to submerge in the huge underwater tank Candice had set up in the Centre of the Clothes Show. There were about 15 models submerging for the shoot - which was a marathon of preparation and photography. I painted Olympiac Swimmer Karen Pickering, Olympic Synchro Swimmer Jenna Randall, Socialite and TV Presenter Hofit Golan and British Actress Rosie Fellner. It was high pressure to work with so many models in such a public arena but from what I can see so far the results looks amazing. I hope Fresh 2o raised lots of funds for thier current campaign!

Below are a few snaps from Fresh 2O's blog - finished images from Candice's underwater rig to follow at some point in the near future hopefully!
