In order to fully embody the magical quality of the iconic mermaid she learnt to free dive in Thailand, and can hold her breath in controlled conditions for up to five minutes. Mahina’s dedication to the physical demands of the job means she is able to work for long hours under water in difficult conditions. She carefully designs and handcrafts all of her mermaid tails to ensure the look is unique and highly professional. Her ability to go the extra mile to get quality underwater shots, along with her extensive modelling and design expertise gives her jobs a unique and magical quality.
