Fairy tales under water

Rob Aarsen
Model photography



Stage 1

This is what you can expect

Hans Christian Andersen wrote about it, Rob Aarsen captures the mermaids. In a dreamy, fairytale way. His photos are colorful and illustrative.

Will you bring a mermaid with you during your presentation at Duikvaker?
Yes! Marleen Schouten. She is already present at the fair, because she is also very interested in marine life. She is on the stand at the ANEMOON Foundation. And sometimes, like Mermaid Shelley, she becomes a resident of the sea herself.

Rob Aarsen

Rob Aarsen started diving in 1982. He has been taking photographs since 1991, when it was still analogue. Rob sees himself as an all-round underwater photographer with a slight preference for landscapes and wide angle with models. In addition to his job as a communications advisor, Rob was until recently editor-in-chief of Onderwatersport Magazine, the magazine of the Dutch Underwater Sports Association. Rob has taken a new direction with model photography in the swimming pool. He believes that nothing on land comes close to the light, colours, shapes and textures that you encounter underwater. The underwater world is an endless source of inspiration and possibilities. For more images, visit www.in2thedeep.com.
