Underwater Photographer


You can you can’t get enough of the underwater life, and like to capture everything on camera? Then the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer Specialty Course is a great specialty course for you. As a digital underwater photographer, you will learn everything you need to know to take the best underwater photos. Think buoyancy, the best positions to photograph marine life, and maintaining your camera.

Avoid beginner mistakes and shorten the learning curve with tips from professionals. Learn how to use underwater photography lights (flashes), avoid scattering and enhance colors.

In a theory session we will teach you the basics of underwater photography. Our specially trained underwater photography instructors will teach you all about composition, the shot angle, lighting, and diver etiquette for photographers.

During two dives you will gain practical experience in taking photos with a compact camera or action camera. You use the SEA (Shoot, Evaluate, Adjust) method to create great photos that you can proudly show to others.

At the end of the day, you and your instructor will take a look at the photos and evaluate them, and you will of course receive the photos you have taken.

Do you already have an underwater camera? Then we will work with your own device. If you don’t have one yet, you can borrow one from us (included in the course price).
