Fins Magazine was started in 2019 sharing the world of mermaids from an enthusiast and photographer perspective, with some mermaid content thrown in.
With the addition of Jeff Weiner from JW Creative Art in 2020, Fins is growing. Not only are we combining the world of digital artistry with mermaids, we are expanding our content. Not just a platform for mermaids to be featured, it is now a place for mermaid related businesses and mermaids to learn, grow and celebrate this amazing and positive community making big changes in our world.
A community finding ways to grow and adapt in spite of a world turned upside down by a global pandemic. Meeting the rising tides of mermaids in the world, Fins has mers from around the globe providing expertise from their own special perspectives. Our content includes:
FLAUNT YOUR FINS
Open submissions for mermaids and photographers to share their collaborations. The WHOLE reason we started was for every level of mermaid. This makes sure we are as open as we can.
FAMILIES IN FINS
Open submissions for mer-families. Merfolk families come in many shapes, sizes, colors and forms. We want to share all the mer-pods, parents, couples, children, siblings, cousins and families.
Safety. Safety. Safety. A very important topic for mermaids. Mermaids are around water and when you add tails, the need for swimming skills, education, awareness and other safety needs dramatically increase. Covering certifications, mermaid schools, freediving and more, this is a recurring series on topic that commands respect.
