Julia Wheeler was obsessed with the movie "The Little Mermaid" when she was a child. Over the years she trained herself to eventually hold her breath underwater for about 4 minutes and became an incredible free-diver. During that time in her life, she also managed to take courses in underwater photography. Today she finds herself in front of the camera and the subject of some amazing photos and videos.
