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 underwater photography courses. The 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 Underwater Photographer course is a more traditional course designed for conventional film equipment.
To complete your Underwater Photography Diver Course (UWP) you will hone your skills by completing various skills in preparing, shooting & editing underwater.
Underwater photography is also popular with snorkelers and there is an option for avid snorkelers and skin divers to complete the course.
(Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 10 years old are eligible to take the Digital Underwater Photographer course.
