The Digital Underwater photography course is one we teach and find that whilst we cover all aspects of the course, it does not always leave people with the skills to be very proficient at UW photography. It reality, practice and mentoring for a number of dives helps you become a “Pro” at UW photography. This is why we have a “Pro” underwater photography course, giving you 20 dives with us to perfect your UW skills.
Good Underwater Photography can only come from good diving practices. The key to that is BUOYANCY!! If you are new to diving, or your buoyancy is not the best, we suggest our PADI PEAK PERFORMANCE BUOYANCY course. In this course you can use underwater cameras too. This will give you more dives to practice the techniques of Underwater Photography.

Question. Will the “PRO “course give me a professional UW Photographer certificate?
Answer. You will receive a PADI Digital Underwater Photography course certification card, but this course is not designed to gain job opportunities. It is purely an extended recreational course.
A minimum certification of PADI Open Water Diver or Equivalent, is required to commence this course.
Question. Would I need my own equipment?
Answer. If you plan to do this sort of course, having your own equipment that you can develop a good understanding for, is important. We can teach the PADI Digital U/W Photography course with our cameras, but not the “Pro” version as you will struggle to understand the functions of your camera. Cameras are not included in the costs.
