After reading the description of how it was done:
Well that's handy, having other people's gear (sponsors') to dump into the water, instead of soaking your own.
Sounds like there was no actual skydiving involved -- I had wondered about that cover shot, how 'perfect' it was -- not an actual jump into water. (But still a nice feat & well set up photography.)
I am guessing based on some of the text that this was sold to the sponsors as a promotional tool for them; they now have some pretty bad-ass "action shots" of their products being "used" under water. Why else would you have several shots of someone arming a CYPRES, except to give CYPRES some promotional shots?
Win-win for the photographer and the manufacturers, methinks.

Admittedly, when I first started reviewing the pics thought someone had some mad Adobe skillz. About halfway down, you see little details that one would have to have an awesome dimensional aspect with each shadow and light reflection. Question Mark.
As you read the text at the bottom... All I can say is the concept and execution were no less than spectacular. Hats off to those who participated and kudos to the manufacturers for helping.
