Meet Underwater swimmer Hannah Fraser who works as a model, actress and performer, swimming with whales, dolphins, stingrays and even sharks.
Hannah swims with whales using very own fish tail – and holds breath for two minutes and dive upto depths of 45 feet.
The 36 year old Australian, who now lives in LA, made her first mermaid tail at the age of nine, after seeing the film Splash with Daryl Hannah.
He fish tail allows her swim fast and move like a real mermaid, without the restraints of diving gear.
In these images of photographer Ted Grambeau, she is seen swimming with humpback whales off Vava’u Island, Tonga, to promote marine conservation and oppose whale hunting.
Ted’s images appear in the children’s book, The Surfer and the Mermaid, and aim to inspire whale conservation.
Hannah Fraser is also featured in a new children’s book Last Night I Swam With A Mermaid by Kimberley Muller.
Also, Filmmaker Rob Benavides is currently shooting a documentary about Hannah’s life, which will feature her work as a model, diver, and sea-life campaigner.
