I’d love to help you take really great photos underwater!
Whether you are just about to buy your first camera and have no idea where to start, use a compact camera or are a seasoned underwater photographer looking to improve your skills or learn a new technique.
I’m here for you!
I offer a number of hands-on, interactive workshops at Indigo Scuba in Gordon’s Bay (Cape Town, South Africa) as well as regular online workshops. As there is an indoor heated swimming pool at Indigo Scuba, we can also practice our skills in the pool. We can also go diving and review your photos afterwards!
I also offer one-on-one training and image review to help solve any problems you might be encountering in your underwater photography journey.
