Underwater photographer and model Ma Qirui from Chengdu in the southwestern province of Sichuan, has made a big splash on social media in China with her unique sub-aqua modelling style.

Footage filmed on Monday, shows Ma Qirui posing for photos underwater while singing and even eating.

"At first my idea was simple, I was an underwater photographer and I wanted to make myself look at ease underwater to show people who are afraid of water that it's natural. This was my first idea." Ma Qirui said.

Ma Qirui, who has been an underwater photographer and model since 2013 has reportedly spent 1 million yuan ($157,000; €146,300) to set up her underwater studio which includes a heated swimming pool.
