About Me

Thanks for stopping by.  My name is Robert Minnick.  I am the owner, primary photographer, and artistic director for Way Beyond Productions.

I am only shooting underwater these days, either in our pool studio located in Virginia Beach, or at locations all over the world.  Anyone interested in a week long underwater photo adventure to some exotic tropical destination, would be welcome to join one of our trips.  Contact me for details.

My main photographic interests are as followes:

-Underwater fashion
-Trash the Dress
-Underwater nude

For the Faerie/Elf shoots I prefer to find a waterfall or other watery location.  However I'm thinking of attempting a few fantasy creatures shoots underwater in our pool studio.

Malena (Mermaid Sharkey MM# 347026) and I are also the owners of Chesapeake Bay Diving Center in Portsmouth, Va.  We are working on a curriculum to teach underwater modeling, and have in place a course for underwater photography.  Photographers and models interested in this please go to for details.

I worked in theater for 27 years, and in the scuba industry for the past 10 .  My experience in theater has given me an eye for the dramatic, and with over 200,000 frames shot underwater, I've leaned how to apply that dramatic eye to my work.
