Our training programs typically begin with an equipment review and portfolio evaluation in order to asses your skills and determine the best plan to achieve your goals. We usually cover: how to get the best results from your equipment, composition, lighting/exposure, workflow/file handling and post processing. We may also get into specific topics such as wide angle photography, achieving a black background in macro, building a portfolio, etc. depending on how much time we have together. The possibilities are endless and very much correlated to your skill level and interests. We also usually include some training dives where in-water techniques are assessed and real-time adjustments can be made.  It really comes down to creating the best plan for you to achieve your goals.

We're very committed to providing most enjoyable and convenient experience possible, so we usually come to you, your hotel or dive center to train at times that won't impact your diving schedule. We want you to be diving and shooting as much as possible...and of course having fun!
