Photography workshops are the ideal way to travel with like minded photographers to world class diving destinations, organised by award winning, specialist tour operator Scuba Travel.
They are aimed at anyone interested in underwater photography. And learning how to take better pics. It’s not about needing to have “all the gear” or thousands of dives. If you’ve never taken a photo underwater, are just getting interested in underwater photography, or feel frustrated with past efforts, then try a photo workshop. The main goal is to show you how to get the most from the kit you have so you can take better pics from day one.
Workshops are not a competition. The atmosphere is intentionally relaxed. Everyone is there for the same thing… to enjoy our diving and take better photos. Pure and simple.
Mario has a thorough understanding of modern camera systems and their use underwater; he is ideally placed to advise photographers on equipment that may initially seem complex. His own photography is grounded in a comprehensive knowledge of the principles that underpin light in the sea, which he presents in a series of informal talks that will prove useful to anyone with an underwater camera. His knowledge of Red Sea reefs, in particular, gives workshop participants a fuller insight into the layers of life and colour awaiting them. After years of guiding divers, he has a love for the sea evident in his own photography, and the way he communicates this passion to his guests.
