What happens in Mexico?
Kristy and Astrid organize an opportunity for photographers to join them in Mexico to shoot underwater in the cenotes and ocean. For a long weekend, the group will go together to multiple cenotes to enjoy and capture a variety of beautiful natural environments with two experienced underwater models. This year, we'll spend one of the days in the ocean around Cozumel. While the event is focused on art made with the nude form, a few props and wardrobe pieces (like mermaid tails!) will also be provided. Most of this workshop will take place underwater, with the opportunity to shoot at the beach or around the cenotes.
The event takes place over Feb 23-27. We meet on the 23rd, and shoot all day the 24-26. Participants then have time to pack and leave the 27th after a complimentary breakfast.

Photography takes place over 3 days, Friday-Sunday. We will take photographers to multiple locations for photos over the three days. We provide breakfast in the morning at the Airbnb. After we'll head to the location to start shooting around 8am and end around 5pm. Snacks are provided throughout the day. Dinner takes place at a local restaurant in the evening.
Photographers are picked up at the airport in the afternoon on the Thursday prior to the event, and dropped off at the airport the following Monday morning.
WHAT ARE THE CENOTES?
Cenotes are large sinkholes and caves with fresh or brackish water along the Yucatan Pennisula formed by the erosion of the limestone over centuries. The cenotes offer many landscapes and settings from lilypads and mangroves to caves and stalagmites!
The cenotes are typically clear, but since weather and popularity can affect their clarity, we do not predetermine which springs we will go to until the weekend of the event!
Over two of the three days, we’ll visit 1-3 cenotes a day depending on the variety at each cenote. The parking area is often right in front of the cenote, so there isn't much walking involved at all, but be prepared to carry your belongings to the cenote from the van! Often there are stairs involved.
This event is for any photographers interested in underwater. Some experience is necessary as far as understanding your camera equipment and an ability to swim underwater. Diving experience is not required and floats are provided. We have one camera and underwater housing available to rent for the event, but suggest bringing what you're familiar with. This is an easy shooting event, and this is a good experience for newer as well as experienced underwater photographers. The cenotes have great clarity for shooting, and Kristy and Astrid have a lot of experience posing underwater.
