The Mermaid Experience

    Our mission at The Mermaid Experience is to bring artists together for a creative experience of a lifetime. We customize our trips for the avid photographer at every experience level. 
    Our all-inclusive trips are hyper-focused on portraiture, glamour, and of course fine art photography. 
    The Turks and Caicos Islands sets our scene. Martin, our on-island host will show you the best locations and what gorgeous settings serve his already existing, Turks and Caicos based, photography career Mermaid Pictures and Printing.

    During the experience, from the picturesque sunrise through the golden hours of sunset, we will bring you to prime highly secluded spots that will cultivate your creativity. From uninhabited island beaches only accessible by boat,  sandbars out at sea, incredible beachfront villas, mangroves, reflection pools, limestone caves, and of course dramatic seascape locations. The beautiful by nature Turks and Caicos has it and we will shoot it!

    Our event is carefully curated and therefor it takes a close knit team to manage our events. Our assistants, mermaids, the concierge team and hosts Martin & Makayla will be your ultimate guides for this trip. Rest assured knowing everything can and will be taken care of by the Mermaid Team.

    We include all of the unforeseen charges one can accrue on a vacation and make all the necessary arrangements for you to have an easy carefree time once you are on island. 

    The models we cast are a huge part of our organization. We scout models based on their posing abilities and on set attitude. The Mermaids are all here to be a part of your art and creative process. They are talented and tenacious women that we are proud to have as part of our brand.
