Office-3 Camera Prep Area

Alex is experienced in using and teaching with all camera formats and a variety of different brands. So whether you use a Compact, Mirrorless or DSLR system, Alex can help you improve your images. Dive4Photos uses the most spacious, comfortable and photographer-friendly dive boat on the island, that has a set schedule so we know what dive sites we are going each day and exactly how long we will be at the site to maximise the time we can spend underwater. More time underwater equals more time taking photos to practice the techniques covered on the courses. With minimum dive times of 60 minutes (air supply permitting) and up to 90 minutes on some shallow afternoon dives you will get ample time to perfect your underwater photography skills.
