WHO, WHAT, WHY
Underwater Photographer Sarah Teveldal of Flashpool Productions and traveling international model Astrid Kallsen have teamed up to create a space for underwater photographers and those interested in learning the art of movement in the water to come together co-create, collaborate and learn from one-another.
The workshops are held in luxurious, visually appealing settings along with the comforts of home-cooked meals by team members Lilah and Toby Bazarte. You can relax knowing that you will be treated with warm hospitality through-out your stay.
Our goal is to provide a one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive experience that fosters inspiration and creativity in a safe, non-judgemental space. We aim to strengthen and unify the underwater art community one workshop at a time.
We hope to take these workshops around the world. Sign up for our mailing list to receive updates and send us a message letting us know where you would like to see us visit next!

If you've been following along on social media, you've seen a glimpse into the incredible time we've had at our last workshops in Austin, Texas and Atlanta Georgia. There's no way to put into words how amazing the energy is when you fill a space with so many creative people. We want to continue to share that with others.
The luxury accomodation sets the stage for the creativity that will flow as we learn, grow and co-create. We will provide a small selection of wardrobe and fabrics to work with and you are encouraged to bring your own as well.
The days are planned so that there are opportunities for us to work together as one group, as smaller groups and individual one-on-one time as well. There will be plenty of downtime for you to explore, network, take "dry" photos around the property or just rest and rejuvenate. We will take breaks for delicious, thoughtfully prepared nutritious meals to keep your energy going.
We want you to walk away having been inspired in wherever you are at in your journey, taking with you the knowledge you learned in the water, out of the water and from each other.
Let's make waves together
MEET THE TEAM
I’m an independent model based in Atlanta, Georgia. I started modeling in 2014 and modeling underwater in 2015 with and without a mermaid tail. I quickly became very experienced modeling on land and underwater through my passion and dedication for it! Now I tour all over the world modeling for photographers and designers.
I love modeling underwater because gravity no longer becomes a barrier.
I’m excited to show others how easy and peaceful it can be to model underwater. It is a difficult genre to handle at first, even for the most amazingly natural models but there are quite a few tricks that I can teach you so that you will be able to find control in the water.
This is a great experience for new and seasoned models and mermaids. Modeling underwater opens the door to new possibilities and I can't wait to show you the beauty of it all.
Underwater photography has been an absolute passion of mine for the last decade and I love sharing it with others in any way that I can.
This passion has taken me around the world. I've photographed babies, mermaids, models, pregnant women, couples, sea life, tea parties, brides and grooms, athletes, dogs, pageant queens and products in the water and am always looking for my next subject.
Astrid was one of the first models I ever worked with in the water and she opened my eyes to the valuable experience of working with a professional model. I am excited to team up with her to put on this workshop.
With 13 years of combined experience, we are looking forward to sharing all that we've learned with you, while enjoying amazing surroundings, new friendships and creative vibes. Plus, you will get to take home with you amazing images you will be proud of.
I have spent the last 14 years of my life discovering, & creating experiences that engage the senses and bring an awareness into the body in a way that helps it perform and feel it's best.
I love being able to help others learn how to take care of their bodies so that they can continue to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
My mission in life is to live with passion.
I look forward to using the simple pleasures, healthy organic foods and the mindful movement of yoga to help you feel your best for your photo shoot workshop.
