Learn Underwater Photography Courses in Swanage, Dorset

Do you think that taking beautiful underwater images requires equipment that costs a fortune? Well I'd love to help show you how to take incredible, award-winning underwater images, the easy way without the need for big, heavy equipment.

Yes, of course quality gear is essential to keep your equipment safe, but this does not need to cost the earth, you can take incredible underwater images with just your phone.

  • Introduce you to equipment needed to take beautiful images underwater
  • Help you to master key settings to capture your favourite subjects in an easy-to-understand way.  A previous knowledge of ISOs, Apertures and Shutter Speeds is helpful, but not necessary.

A full day (£150) will include all of the above plus:-

  • Extensive "Get Creative With Your Camera" helping to master the very unique and special art of creating beautiful images using different equipment such as wide-angle lenses, macro lens to bring out the detail and textures of tiny subjects.
