Mission Statement:

Underwater photography is one of the most popular diving specialties, and the rise of digital underwater photography has made it easier and more fun than ever. However, taking good photos underwater is not as easy as it may seem and often amateurs give up because of frustration and lack of opportunities to practice their photographic skills underwater.

This is why there are two PADI underwater photography courses. The PADI Underwater Photographer course gets you going quickly with today modern digital equipment, whether you use a point-and-shoot snap camera or a sophisticated D-SLR like the pros. The PADI Underwater Photographer course is a more traditional course designed for conventional film equipment.

Most photos are worth a thousand words. Underwater ones are worth at least a million. – Stephen Frink

This Specialty course certification also counts as one of five Specialty certifications required for Master Scuba Diver Rating.
