Models dive 25 metres to underwater shipwreck for breathtaking photoshoot

There is no photoshop involved in these photos - they were created using real models who dived up to 25 metres underwater in order to create these magical shots.

The photographer, Montreal-based Benjamin Von Wong, and a crew of experienced divers, underwater photographers and freedivers set up the complicated shoot in a sunken shipwreck off the coast of Bali.

The models themselves are experienced freedivers - divers who dive deep underwater without oxygen tanks and can hold their breath for up to four minutes

Safety divers were also nearby to provide the models with breaths of air from a tank, when needed.

For some of the shots, the models were actually tied down to the shipwreck.

Their flowing dresses were provided by international Bali-based designer Ali Charisma.

Here's a behind the scenes video showing how these stunning photos were achieved.

Seriously impressive.
