Action by Derek photography (http://www.actionbyderek.com/) (Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Action-by-Derek-photography/146080705459818))

It was so much fun! Derek was very patient and understanding of how some tails can be a pain in the fin ;) when it comes to sinking and posing. He does an excellent job on his end so I just have to worry about me getting it. Although that's very much doing things again and again to get the best shot! But we had some laughs and it was a good time! I'm one lucky mermaid to get to work with a great underwater photographer like him! If you click on my signature gif (of me swimming) it'll take you to his website! You guys should check it out- he does some great work, especially when combined with his freediving!

Fathom Films is run by Jack Gittings, and has lots of Hollywood experiance. He's also a former NASDS Master instructor, who probably taught my scuba instructor how to teach me.

Jeff and Lisa were wonderful to work with. Not only was he a creative and off the wall photographer but he kept the conversation flowing so you never felt uncomfortable. He was hilarious! And Lisa is just a sweetheart. I am definitely going to work with them again

Thank you for the kind offer Christoper. I would definitely be interested in working with you sometime. I am a freelance model and am always looking to expand on my port, especially mermaid shots. What type of photography did you used to do?

Are there any photographers located in Belguim?

Winged Mermaid

These are just one's we've come across, and members add to the list as they come across them. You'd have to go look. They're kinda rare because of the expense of the equipment , which is also why average rate starts at $300 an hr :/ Good luck in finding one :) I think Model Mayhem is international if you want to check there.

Glad that Greg amptman/ undersea discoveries was added. He's great and I hope to book a shoot with him soon. His prices are very reasonable too.
