Erena Shimoda is an underwater portrait photographer based in San Francisco. She was born in Tokyo, Japan, is certified as a scuba Divemaster, and uses her background in New Media and Fine Art to create unique compositions in different media. She pioneered her underwater healing therapy practice after volunteering at the American Cancer Society and the Look Good Feel Better program. Seeing cancer survivors marvel at lovely photographs of themselves again made such an impact on Shimoda that she decided to combine her interest in underwater photography with recovery—namely, to help cancer survivors experience the healing effects of being submerged in water and feel beautiful about themselves when they see the resulting portraits. As numerous testimonials illustrate, Shimoda’s powerful and transformative Underwater Portrait Sessions help cancer survivors rediscover their beauty, regain their confidence and self-esteem, and provide an experience of transcendence.
