SUSANNE STEMMER photographs the PALMERS SWIMWEAR S/S 2016 campaign 'Incomparable Me' under water – a weightless tribute to the beauty and colorful diversity of the ocean

The gentle break of waves, dreams of freedom – dipping below the surface. All reflect the multifaceted bikini and swimsuit range from PALMERS in 2016. Susanne Stemmer staged the new PALMERS campaign, where else but under water.

Diving beneath the surface, weightlessness and freedom, letting go of whatever burdens us above the surface, being one with ourselves and feeling confident... – the recurring theme throughout the exhibitions of the underwater photographer fits perfectly with the brand philosophy of Palmers: 'Incomparable Me'. The shoot was photographed and filmed in Austria. Retouching and color grading were in the hands of Roman Keller/Malkasten, video compositing was taken care of by Friendly Fire Communications, and the music was composed by Max van der Rose.

Underwater panoramas with a Vienna State Ballet dancer for bathtub manufacturer POLYPEX, photographed in a mountain lake by Susanne Stemmer

A giant panorama – sixty-six meters long and four meters high – was what international bathtub manufacturer POLYPEX wanted for its newest campaign. To realize the shoot, underwater specialist Susanne Stemmer chose the crystal clear water of a mountain lake. Protected by thick thermal insulation, Susanne and her team dove deep into the icy element to make this elaborate shoot possible. “Hours upon hours of underwater location scouting or waiting for the perfect shot at the tripod, feet suspended, trying not to move or even touch the ground so that the sediment could fall again so that the water would be as clear as possible... But it was all worth the effort: The panoramic photo now adorns the newly renovated building of the headquarters in Austria.” the photographer tells GoSee.

For the bath exhibition inside, another series was also part of the photo production: Dancer Josephine Tyler from the Vienna State Ballet company jumped into the icy water and gave a wonderful performance despite the adverse conditions.
