What to Expect

What to Expect when working with the Splash Underwater Photos Team

We often have parents wonder if their children really are enjoying their swimming lessons, and what their children actually look like under the surface. So this is the perfect opportunity to capture their cute faces and the wonderment that below the surface brings.

Capturing the Photos

To have the best opportunity to capture children learning to swim, we have found the best results happen when the children are in the midst of a swimming lesson. We have developed techniques that result in minimal distraction and impact on lessons but produce fantastic photos!

Judi and the Splash Underwater Photos Team set up the customised Pool Studio on the Monday morning and will be jumping in during the Swim School’s regular lessons for the full week of swimming lessons … including Saturday or Sunday. The Splash Underwater Photos Team will capture photos of your child/children during their regular swimming lessons. Every child will be photographed unless a parent specifically requests for this not to occur with their child.

If there are families with more than 1 child that is happy in the pool (being submerged), we would love to capture your children together in a unique and fun family photo, one to be treasured!

Viewing My Child’s Photos

Splash Underwater Photos will return the following week during the same times as the lessons for parents, grandparents and carers to view the photos captured of their child/children. This is the best time to purchase photos as the team will be available to ask any questions. Prices and packages will be on display around the centre, as well as sent out with the emails sent from the Swim School to families.

What is Available?

Packages start from $50 and include the chosen printed photo and both the high resolution digital file as well as one resized specifically for social media so you can share your water baby with your family and friends on Facebook, Instagram etc! If parents prefer to hang one or more of the captured images in their home, we have options available to suit everyone’s needs. Alongside the regular packages, we also offer Acrylic, Canvas, Framed and Aluminium prints, all printed here in Brisbane and ready to hang.

When do the photos get delivered?

Splash Underwater Photos will organise to print your photos with their professional print lab based in Brisbane, and will deliver your packaged photos back to the Swim School about 2-3 weeks after the viewing week. The Swim School and Parents will receive an email with more details about the delivery date as they become available.

What if my child is sick?

If your child is unwell on the day they normally have their swimming lessons, but you would like to have the photos taken or view your child’s photos, please either let us know and we can arrange a quick dip after classes from another day or capture your child during their make up lesson if it is during the week we are in the pool.

About Splash Underwater Photos

Judi Turner Buzer, the head photographer and owner of Splash Underwater Photos, has been capturing children underwater for more than 7 years, and has a swimming background herself. She has spent many hours on the pool deck watching her kids at swimming lessons too, and this is where she came up with the idea for underwater school photos. Judi has won many awards over the years, both within Australia and Internationally for her underwater photography. The Team of Dunkologists are all Austswim qualified Learn to Swim Teachers, so they understand how little people love the water can work with them to get the best photos! We are looking forward to having the Team here in our pool.
