Level One Underwater Photography

This three-day course is designed both for beginners and those with land photography experience who want to transfer their knowledge to the ocean.  Our intensive program includes photography theory, practice on land, supervised in-water training, and editing workshops. 

We will teach you everything from understanding underwater photography principles to camera set-up and care, buoyancy with a camera, how to approach shy marine life to get the best shots, and basic editing techniques. You will soon be creating your own beautiful underwater images!

We keep the course size small with a maximum of 8 students, so you can have the best personal attention from your instructor, award-winning filmmaker, Adrienne Gittus. In addition, we will assign a local divemaster to every 2-3 students to guide you underwater and make sure we have the best safety standards possible.
