Custom Underwater Photography Training

Dive4Photos Custom Underwater Photography Training is aimed at divers that already have an underwater camera system who require personalised training or to cover a specific technique in underwater photography, like wide-angle or super-macro. It is tailored-made to suit your personal requirements and equipment, so is conducted on a 1-to-1 basis to ensure that you have undivided attention during both your theory sessions and during the practical element whilst underwater. You will not be left behind or held back by other students. You will not have to share subjects and can take as long as you like photographing them. You will not have to surface before you are ready due to another students air consumption or dive computer NDL variations, allowing you to dive to your own limits. Alex will be your private Photo Instructor and Dive Guide.
