Video of the Day: Underwater Fishing in Cenote
It took two weeks for the photographer Benjamin Von Wong, his team of thirteen people and model Lance Lee Davis, to prepare for a photo session for Ballantine’s Scotch whisky’s in Cenote not far from the Mexican town Tulum. The film crew dived at about 30 m working close to a dangerous toxic layer of hydrogen sulfide. The gas created the effect of a white cloud similar to a river.
“The layer is so unique that to not film in or near it would have been a huge missed opportunity,” said Adam Booth, Archer’s Mark’s head of production.
Lance Lee Davis had to hold his breath for minutes at a time because an oxygen mask was only available between takes.
