Photographer Brett Stanley’s images of Underwater Pole Dancers really capture the beauty and talent of the subjects. Shot over a few weeks in conjunction with leading pole dance supplier X-Pole, Brett worked with the dancers to create the series, teaching them how to hold their breath under the water and collaborating on which poses looked the best.

Due to the relative lack of gravity in the water the dancers had to adjust their routines, poses that usually worked needed tweaking to accommodate that up was now down.

Brett is hoping to expand on this series, working with other acrobatic performers on underwater photoshoots in the future.










Award winning commercial photographer Brett has been developing his style and techniques for over five years and cementing himself as a reliable and creative photographer.

Brett’s passion is location work, combining the wonders of nature with the talents of the subject and his view is that whilst the studio can provide a controlled and reliable environment, a location based shoot can surprise you with the most amazing special effects outside of the editing suite.

The Australian born photographer says that living in New Zealand has given him the most amazing opportunities and he’s worked with some great clients in some of the best locations in the world.

Now residing in Los Angeles, California, Brett is available for commercial, advertising, fashion or illustrative work worldwide.
