About our Underwater Photography Course

Sign up for our Underwater Photography Course and we’ll show you how to take really great photos underwater.  

Our underwater photography courses are presented by our in-house photo pro Kate Jonker. Kate is also an award-winning and published professional underwater photographer and international photography judge. All in all, you will get expert advice at all times!

Why do the Course?

We’ll teach you how to take photos you will be proud to show your friends and family. Furthermore, underwater photography is also a great way to relive your adventures and introduce others into the underwater world!

If you have a digital camera and underwater housing but don’t know how to use it, we’ll show you what to do. As well as teaching you the best techniques, we will show you how to care for you camera, too.

If you don’t have an underwater set-up, the choices can be quite daunting. Because of this, we will help you choose the right camera for you, while making sure your investment will last you for many years.
