Sam (short for Samantha), is one of those rare Frogwomen who had seen my work and contacted me directly. She really wanted to get wet with some of my many suits and masks. Sadly she lives quite a distance away so we were only able to organize a single shoot together. Her first gear choice was the combination of a smooth-skin one-piece wetsuit, together with matching hood and socks. With a Technisub full face mask attached to a Mistral dual-hose regulator strapped tightly to her face. She’d brought along her own rubber riding boots as the location we shoot at is muddy. For comfort (there are lots of sharps stones around the lake), she even wanted to wear them in the water!
I know purists will want to see Sam slide her feet into rubber fins, however the neoprene socks are expensive and get damaged easily by stones and rocks. This is why you’ll see the Frogwomen wearing welly boots most of the time at this location.
Watching this rubbery Frogwoman as she waded, PVC riding boots and all into the water. The sound of her breathing compressed air through a vintage regulator. As the heat builds up from her breath, the mask begins to mist. Sam really loved the way she looked under all the wet rubber!
Behind the scenes
Some behind the scenes footage of Sam. The poor girl was freezing, but nevertheless, she went back and forth, in and out of the water without complaint. Smiling even though her rubber riding boots were full of cold water, lifting her legs individually to empty the boots. Immediately after which she jumped into the car to warm up before we started on the next scene.
