MANILA, Philippines - The whale sharks (butanding) of Oslob, Cebu are featured in an underwater fashion shoot with international models.

The photos appear in the online edition of the United Kingdom's The Telegraph. Click here to view the photos.
 
According to The Telegraph, the models "dived up to 25 feet deep into the ocean to pose with the world's largest fish - measuring 30 feet long and weighing 20,000 pounds."
 
The photo shoot was the "brainchild" of American photographers Shawn Heinrichs and Kristian Schmidt. 
 
"People are blown away by the images. Most find it hard to believe they are actually real - many people assume the models are Photoshopped into the pictures," Heinrichs told The Telegraph.
