Which Team accompanies this Merfolk Retreat?

Since 2013, we’ve been immersed in the magic of organizing international Mermaid Weeks and Underwater Modelling Retreats. Through these experiences, our passion for underwater modeling, mermaiding, and underwater photography has deepened. Along the way, our team has garnered numerous accolades and prizes, becoming the shining stars in our field.

Now, let us warmly introduce you to our remarkable team, the very essence of excellence in this realm:

 

Mermaid Kat, Founder and Underwater Stunt Woman

Meet Mermaid Kat, the visionary behind Mermaid Weeks. Since 2012, she’s immersed herself as a professional mermaid. Trained in scuba diving, free diving, and mermaid instruction, Kat’s journey is a testament to passion and skill.

As a world-renowned underwater model, she’s danced with whales, dolphins, sharks, and even crocodiles, crafting mesmerizing underwater tales. Yet, her true joy lies in sharing these adventures with others.

Kat’s workshops aren’t just lessons; they’re journeys of transformation. As a Dream Life Mentor, she’s dedicated to helping others forge their paths to freedom. With each participant, she witnesses growth, inspiration, and the blossoming of dreams.

For Kat, it’s not just about swimming; it’s about empowering others to embrace lives they adore.

 

Video Team:

Jens and Melli Drygalla, the passionate duo behind “D Image Factory,” infuse each event with their camera, preserving every moment of joy, healing, and embodiment. With skillful hands, they craft not just a souvenir video but a treasure trove of memories from every unforgettable retreat.

Their dedication goes beyond mere recording; they delve into individual video concepts with participants, weaving personal narratives into visual tales. Lifeguards by training, they stand as guardians of safety, while Melli’s mermaid training at Mermaid Kat Academy Germany adds a touch of whimsy to their endeavors.

 

Underwater Photographer:

Ian Gray isn’t just Mermaid Kat’s husband; he’s also an award-winning underwater photographer. Beyond his accolades, including winning 1st place at the International Diving Festival PAF 2023 in the category “Pool and Creative,” Ian’s heart lies in working underwater with diverse individuals. Especially, he thrives on collaborating with “newcomers” who are still finding their footing in underwater modeling.

His true passion? Guiding his models with unwavering support, helping them build self-assurance, and ensuring they feel secure in their poses. Ian cherishes every opportunity to dive deep with his subjects, fostering their growth and confidence beneath the waves.
