Event Information

Welcome to The Mermaid Experience in the Turks and Caicos Islands, a creative vacation.

We are so pleased to welcome you to this one of a kind trip; combining exclusive locations, top end models, and a vibrant peer group. Our dream is to bring together creative minds who share a passion for glamour and lifestyle photography in the land we love so dearly. The Turks and Caicos feature some of the most spectacular beaches in the world. Soft white sands, and turquoise waters are our constant backdrop.

Each day will be filled with opportunities to create imaginative and electric images. From sunrise through the golden hours of sunset, we will put you in the best possible conditions to absolutely crush it. We have selected some of the best of the best locations in the islands; from 5 star exclusive beachfront properties to secluded beaches, we will hit them all. We are also partnered with some amazing brands that will provide opportunities to have your work featured in their marketing campaigns. A great chance to increase your exposure and network.

Your Experience

Each session will include tons of one on one time with the models. This is not one of those workshops that only gives you 10 mins with each set up. We purposely keep our numbers small so that you can build up your scene. Every location has multiple amazing nooks, set ups, and spaces to shoot. We will help you set up with dedicated stylists and energetic encouragement from our team. We only want you to shoot amazing and captivating images. We have been shooting in the islands for almost 2 decades; we are experts in using natural light and the environment to build emotion and drama in your images.
