Underwater with Julie Gautier for Vegan Brand



I have always dreamed of being part of underwater productions
for films, music videos & conscious brands that resonate
with my personal values and make a positive
difference in this world!

We all can thrive without exploiting animals, human beings or nature.
Abundance is our natural state.
And this is what I love about this entire project!
It´s co-creation at its best!

So where did it all start?

I was just in Cap Ferret when the amazing Julie Gautier-Nery (film director,
underwater camera superwoman & amazing creative genius)
gave me a call and told me
about her next underwater production project. She has realised a couple of really
stunning underwater projects like “Free Fall” with her husband Guillaume Nery,
“Naughty Boy – Runnin´ (Lose it All) ft. Beyoncé” and recently her new short film
“AMA”  and many more.

When Julie told me that the production she asked me to do with her is for an all
vegan, organic, eco friendly skincare brand
(yes….with real ethical values) I got
sparkles in my eyes 🤩 … yes of course I am in. Let´s make this happen!

I have been working as a professional underwater model for a while
and this is exactly where I want it to go!
Artistic contribution for something that matters!
This is a dream come true. 🐬


Long story short

An amazing team of co-creators (film team, safety divers, makeup-artist, wardrobe-
creator/stylist, photographers, journalists, etc. )
 came together to make all of this happen!


With little time,  fantastic improvisation & pro execution everybody gave their best!
It was a firework of creativity, emotions, compassion and simply love… magic was in
the air… and of course underwater. 🐬

The icing on the cake?

Fashion Photographer Hugo Richard joined us underwater to take breath-taking
behind-the-scenes photos for the major Magazine “Marie Claire”  where the
journalist Catherine Castro wrote a feature story about Julie Gautier
as well as Anne Maury (her friend & safety diver),
Alice Modolo (Vice World Champion in Freediving) & me.

Back to the production

The underwater shooting took place close to my home in Cap D´Antibes,
South of France around 6-7 metres underwater.
The conditions were rough with lots of wind as well as rain
just when we were about to enter the water. 😯 Fortunately
all worked out well and after half-day preparation and
around 40+ minutes filming underwater we called it a wrap.

Takeaway from this story?

Go for what you feel is right in your heart!
No matter how “different” your dreams and ideas are…
follow them– they lead you to the right place.
Believe in yourself and believe in your dream!
