Leo Rohrsetzer was the photographer selected by the sustainable swimwear brand, WONDA Swim to shoot their new bikini collection, through capturing the body positivity, friendship, and trust.

Back in 2013, when Leo was in the midst of his A-levels, he started to view photography in a more professional way. Through taking part in a photography course at school, Leo learned how to develop analog pictures, studied famous photographers, and understood the basics of analog and digital photography. Admitting that the photos which he took throughout his school years were not good, he credits it as being the beginning of a long learning process – which still continues.

Passionate for Ad photography and driven by his love for working for and with creative minds, Leo applied for the WONDA Swimwear Job. Describing the Cherrydeck application process as being easy – with it only have taken a few clicks requiring the selection of his Cherrydeck Portfolio and contact details – he quickly met up with the founders of WONDA Swim. Leo was involved in scouting a location alongside the founders, and the job required the reflection of body positivity, friendship, trust, and happiness through the photos captured.
