Wide Angle Underwater Photography Boot Camp - Divi Flamingo Resort Bonaire - April 30th - May 7th, 2016



Join Us for a Wide Angle Boot Camp April 30th - May 7th, 2016 in Bonaire!

Wide angle photography is one of the more difficult techniques to master underwater. Our simple approach demystifies what can be an intimidating skill to learn. Both in the classroom and underwater, our instructors teach how to combine proper camera, lighting, and post production techniques in order to produce consistently better wide angle shots.

In Water Instruction

The instructors will assist each student individually underwater, helping them to shoot, review and adjust their shots. This "In water instruction" will consist of shooting specific setups alongside our experts.

Who Should Attend?


Beginner and intermediate underwater photographers that are looking to improve their wide angle UW photography skills.  Do you struggle with strobe position?  Balancing ambient light and flash exposure?  Do you want to learn the post processing techniques to take your images from Blah to Ahhh?  Then this is the course for you.

Learn On-Location in a Small Group Setting


This course is limited to 14 guests in order to maximize your one-on-one time with our instructors. Before you arrive, we'll have scouted out the best wide angle setups in advance.
