PADI Specialty courses are run on demand, so please get in touch if you're interested in taking this specialty!
Underwater photography is an amazing way to share your experiences with friends. With the advent of digital imaging and the quality that is now available, underwater photography has never been more accessible!
- Small groups - no more than 4 students to 1 Instructor so you get more Instructor time for the best learning environment and more time exploring during your dives!
- Full PADI e-learning - You complete your theory from home, at a pace that suits you. But don't worry, we know how important asking questions are so your course includes additional theory revision sessions with your Instructor.
- Top quality gear - Brand new Scubapro dive equipment for you to use throughout your course for your comfort and safety if you choose to hire, or you're welcome to use your own!
The PADI Digital Underwater Photography course is a day full of diving, with the camera as your reason for diving. You'll conduct 2 dives with your PADI Instructor, exploring the technical and equipment sides of creating images underwater but also learning about diving techniques that can be used to minimise your impact upon the underwater world.
As photographers and especially diving photographers, it's really important that we engage with the environment we're working in with a careful and observant approach. Sometimes it's just not possible to get the shot you want without causing damage, which we just don't to. This is something that, as an underwater photographer, you'll soon learn to work with!
After our dives, we'll spend some time exploring post production and how we can tweak our shots to get the most out of our images!
If you have a buddy that's booked on too then awesome! If not you'll be buddied up with another course mate for the duration of the course.
We hope you'll choose us to get your PADI Digital Underwater Photographer! If you have any questions or specific requirements just let us know and we'll happily answer them all for you.
Why explore with us?
We believe that your learning experience should be as fun and accessible as possible. That's why you'll find our courses have the FULL PADI e-learning as standard where available, meaning you get to cover the theory at your own pace before the course starts. But, don't worry - we know that Instructor time is essential to your learning which is exactly why we build in a theory revision session too, so you can ask us anything you like in person! Best of both worlds!
We're proud to work with Scubapro, one of the worlds top gear brands, who keep us fully stocked with their gear, so if you need to hire for the course you can be sure of quality!
So with us you get small groups, quality Instruction, full e-learning, no hidden costs and top brand name equipment.
Simply book online, and soon after you'll get a confirmation email from the team along with some specific info, such as meeting times and locations. Very often we're able to help arrange carpooling, so just let us know if you're coming over on the ferry and we'll help out if we can.
You'll need to let us know some of your sizes so that we can allocate gear if you need any (at an additional hire fee) and complete the appropriate medical and liability release forms and provide proof of certification as a diver. Also, while we can supply materials in a variety of languages, the course is taught in English so a good level of spoken English is also required.
Please note that for this course our minimum age is 14 and we need in person, signed paperwork from a parent or guardian for anyone under 18. We can arrange, on request, courses for younger divers, but as these are at a reduced ratio please be aware there may be an additional cost.
