Snorkeling and scuba diving in the sea or the ocean make for amazing experiences, every single time. And you’re not the first one to want to take those memories home with you afterward.

But if you don’t know what equipment you need, how to properly prepare, and what to pay attention to once you’re in the water, you may end up like many others: gigabyte of failed pictures, hours of unusable footage, or even losing your camera or cell phone forever to the depth bottom of the ocean.

If you’re just getting started with underwater photography or videography, then this is the course for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of camera do I need for this course?

We’ll go through the different types of cameras that can be used underwater, and the main aspect is that you should not spend too much money when you start out.

Do I need a certain level in “surface photography” before I can start taking pictures underwater?

No, you don’t; taking pictures underwater is very different from surface photography, so if you’re an experienced photographer already, you might need to let go of a few things you know… so you can learn the specifics of underwater photography.

How long will it take me to get through this course?

For the beta version of this course, many of the videos will be created as we go (and on-demand). This course is for beginners and I’m keeping it to the essentials only.
You’ll get access to a new bundle of short videos each week, for three weeks.
Week one of the course will be all about your camera, equipment, and gear; week two will be about the preparations before you go into the water – and week three will be about what to pay attention to once you’re in the ocean.

Will I learn how to edit the footage?

I’ve added some information about the software I use to edit the footage, but this course won’t show you how to use that software. There are plenty of simple (free) tutorials online though!

Will this allow me to become a professional underwater camera person?

If you aspire to be a professional underwater videographer or photographer, then this is definitely the first step to take. To become a professional, you’ll need many hours practicing in the water!

You say this is a “beta” course. What does that mean?

As this is the first time I’m running this course, I’m offering it for a discounted price – in exchange for your feedback. I will be creating some of the content as we go, on-demand, or even live. This means you’ll have a chance to shape this course with me, and to get exactly what you need out of it!

Will I learn to take pictures (photos) or videos?

At the end of this course, you’ll know how to take either – or both.
