Photography FAQs

Do I need to be a strong swimmer for an underwater photography session?


It is strongly recommended that you know how to swim but you do not need to be a strong swimmer. When booking a shoot we will talk about your comfort level in a mermaid tail and swimming skills. You are solely responsible for your own safety during the shoot. Do not force yourself to swim deeper than you are comfortable or hold your breath longer than you are capable. Safety first always!




Do I need to sign a photography agreement?


Yes! Once you book a shoot, you will be sent a photo release and liability form you will need to complete and bring to the session.




Can you do underwater photoshoots in natural bodies of water?


For saftey reasons the awnser is generally no. Natural bodies of water in the Salish Sea are very cold and have current/tidle conditions that can make it unsafe to swim in unless you are an experianced and certified diver with a designated safty diver. If you are a decent swimmer we can dicuss doing surface/shallow coastline photos depending on the season. If you are a certified freediver who can bring a certified dive buddy and have the nessesary equipment aviable for surviving in our northern waters we can discus possible open water photos. As with all photography sessons you are resposible for your own safty
