Behind the scenes of Michael Muller’s underwater cover shoot with surfer Josh Mohr (video)

For its August issue, Outside magazine produced a series of stories packaged as “The Apocalypse Handbook,” with pro surfer Josh Mohr pictured on the cover in a debris-strewn underwater “must-escape” setting.

The photo is by Michael Muller, who was working with $250,000 worth of camera equipment, including ProFoto underwater flash heads that he designed. The shoot took place at Fantasy II in Sun Valley, California, which has an 850,ooo-plus-gallon water-tank filming facility.

Michael worked with Outside creative director Hannah McCaughey and photo editor Amy Feitelberg. The producer was Kate Amengual of Producit.
