Meredith’s work is driven by a desire to encourage ordinary people to escape into extraordinary and beautiful places. “Mermaids of Balmoral” is an investigation into the lives of three troublesome but enchanting mermaids (Almora, Lavoni and Cobbittee) that inhabit the skies above and seas below Balmoral beach. Each image provides an insight into their unique personalities and funds raised from sales of the images contribute to further mermaid research. To create his work, Meredith works in an underwater studio with specialist models who are experts in creating graceful poses in a weightless environment. The resulting images are then combined in photoshop with dramatic skyscapes, which are often captured at dawn at Balmoral Beach. Originally from the UK, Meredith is now based in Sydney, Australia and has been building his photo-art for over 15 years.
