First Mermaid Tail, 2001
First Tail. 2001. D/V Sea Fever. Bahamas Banks.
Hard to believe it has been 16 years. Underwater model, Sherry A Reichert (Sherry Smith) and I were doing a magazine shoot on some island and had a conversation about doing something a little different than just underwater. We came up with the idea of shooting a mermaid series. A college fashion professor sketched some costume designs, we picked one, and the designer fabricated Tail#1.
