Oceanic Mermaids

Last week I was featuring some of the art I created from a recent group shoot, 30 photographers and two models. We were joined on the day by Jess Ami and Jess Garrett (at least their names were easy to remember lol). We occasionally do these big group shoots, so that there is a central…

Digital Art – Jewels from the Deep

I have been featuring some recent artwork from a Mermaid beach shoot, but this is probably my favourite. The actual water was shot in a pool in Bali back in 2017. I had fun use the Puppet Warp feature in Photoshop, as Jess was actually kneeling in the sand…she didn’t really look like she was…

Out of the studio – Moonlight Magic

This is another Mermaid shot from the other night. Someone had the brilliant idea of bringing an actual crystal ball…which I actually turned into a giant pearl in this image and it looked like Jess was irreverent or perhaps meditating in this shot, she looked so lovely and peaceful on the water’s edge, you could…

Share your world – 12th Feb 2020

Tuesday’s Tales from the Shoot – The Mermaid and The Princess

 A little while ago, I was asked if I do Mermaids? Sure I said, I am sure I could Photoshop something, then the shoot fell through, but the seed was already planted. Now I know from my own Daughters (now grown women) and from my fairy and ballerina shoots, little girls love to get dressed…
