Thought you’d heard it all when it comes to dangerous shooting scenarios? Think again. The New York Post has released video footage of a photographer and model partaking in an “underwater glamour” photoshoot alongside crocodiles.
Specializing in underwater shoots which involve both humans and sea life, Photographer Ken Kiefer took his wife and two other models into the water of the Chinchorro Banks in Mexico — renowned for being inhabited by crocs — in order to snap some pictures for a new shoot of his.
The concept was to be a glamour shoot, shot underwater and featuring the adult reptiles. The team used lionfish in order to bait the crocodiles towards the human subjects for a shot, with safety divers on hand to protect the crew. However, the models were simply wearing the dresses they were being photographed in, with no further safety gear present.
The 45-second video above gives you further insight into exactly what went down. It clearly illustrates just how close the models were to the crocs, and it looks like a mere few inches. Take a look at the clip and let us know what you think. Given how notorious and unpredictable these animals are, was it worth the risk? Could the crocs instead have been added in during post-production?
