Mermaid Photo Shoots – Frequently Asked Questions

Mermaid Photo Shoots West Sussex

Here’s a few of the questions that I get asked most often about my mermaid photo shoots – if there’s more that you’d like to know, then just get in touch and I’m happy to help.

Can I have more than one Mermaid in the Picture?2020-08-14T13:52:51+01:00

The digital backdrop is designed to only feature one mermaid at a time and because of the time it takes to create the image, there isn’t a discount to create two images in a single session.  However if you have mermaid sisters, you could create two images with different poses that would still look great on your wall together.

How Do You Create the Image in the Studio?2020-08-14T13:49:56+01:00

My mermaid images are mostly created in my editing suite so we focus in the studio on creating the perfect base image for us to work with.  So your little mermaid will get dressed in the mermaid top, tail and headdress (we don’t really need the tail but it’s just more fun that way) and then she will lie on my trunk so she’s in the right position for the digital composite work.  The rest of it is mainly just chatting about what we think that mermaids get up to – it’s a short and sweet session that takes about ten minutes of studio time.  Below is a sneak peek behind the scenes…

What is Included in my Mermaid Session Fee?2020-08-14T13:45:51+01:00

The session fee for creating your mermaid wall art is £45 which includes your time in the studio, use of my mermaid tail, top and headdress and of course your final image at print resolution.

How Many Photos do I Get?2020-08-14T13:43:22+01:00

This is a different kind of photo shoot to the ones I normally offer which aim to give you lots of photos to choose from.  Mermaid photo shoots are focused on creating the perfect single image for your wall.  There’s a lot of work that goes into creating each image so you get the best possible image to download and print.

Are Mermaids Real?2020-08-14T13:21:16+01:00

Strange question but sometimes people ask it.  Yes they are.  Obvs.

What’s the Best Age to create a Mermaid Photo?2020-08-14T13:19:42+01:00

As your mermaid needs to be able to take some direction and generally understand what we’re doing to create the perfect mermaid image, I recommend ages five and up for this type of photo shoot.  That way, they are better placed to use their understanding and imaginations to create images that they (and you) will love.

Are Mermaid Photos Achieved Through Green Screen?2020-08-14T13:14:49+01:00

My mermaid photo shoots are digital that’s for sure but I don’t use green screen technology as I don’t think it cuts the mustard when it comes to creating wall art for your home.  We work to create the base picture in the studio with the right set up and lighting conditions and then the mermaidising takes place back in my editing suite.  As your little mermaid won’t be able to see the final scene she’s becoming part of while she’s in the studio, it’s a good idea to show her one of my mermaid photos before she comes so she has an idea of what we’re doing.
