About MeFirstly, view www.calmero.com.au
I'm a marine biologist and international award winning underwater wildlife photographer. I've had my works in exhibitions around the globe including Melbourne, Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Chicago, New Jersey and Indonesia . My wildlife work has been featured by various international publications/organizations (print and E-magazines) including New Scienist, Walkerly, XRay, Scuba Diver Australasia, Asian Geographic and the National Geographic.
I believe that quality photography is the result of a good working relationship between photographer and model. I'm currently looking for models interested in TF* work - preferably on an on-going basis.
Underwater modeling is difficult. Models have to be able to comfortably open their eyes underwater and appear natural/relaxed.
