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. This is why there are actually two PADI underwater photography courses. The PADI Digital 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 photography course designed for conventional film equipment.
It's a great way to relive the adventures you’ve had, plus capture images to share with your friends and family.
For all your learning materials and equipment, contact Dive Force.
Logistics: The course consists of a classroom session to review theory and digital camera operation. This will be followed by a pool session to practice camera operation and then two dives in open water. Discuss with your Dive Force Instructor suitable locations for the two open water dives.
Cost: £160 includes manual, white balance slate, and required equipment (excluding transportation and site entry fees)
Two excellent specialties to pair with underwater photography are the PADI Enriched Air Diver course, and the PADI Dry Suit Diver course on your way to the elite PADI Master Scuba Diver rating. The PADI Enriched Air Diver course allows you to extend your time underwater so you have more time to capture images. In cooler climates, a dry suit allows you to dive comfortably longer, and to make more dives.
You may also find the Peak Performance Buoyancy course gives you helpful tips to optimize your weighting and skills so you’ll be in better position to capture that perfect picture.
