1-Day Underwater Photo Workshop

From $275 USD

Colors don’t come out the way you expected, the focus is elusive and even the nudibranchs seem to run away from the camera. All the different settings sound so confusing and how do you handle all of that while equalizing, breathing, keeping your buoyancy and staying the group?

What do I need to know?

What will I see during the dives?

I want to know more

During this 1-day workshop, I will teach you the methods I developed for getting great results right away, so you can feel proud when showing them around to family and friends, and hang some beautiful prints on your house walls.

The dive site we will visit is a shore dive, known for an abundance of species such as pufferfish, lobster, rainbow wrasse, spotted stingrays, moray eels, blennies, arrow crabs, banded coral shrimp, sea horses, frogfish and more!

Cozumel is one of my favorite places for underwater photography. It’s easily accessible from anywhere in North America, there are plenty of dive sites to choose from, the reefs are spectacular, visibility is mind-blowing and the diving is great year-round. Yes, even during “hurricane season”.
