Digital Underwater Photography

Why should I take this course?

Underwater photography become one of the most popular activities. Divers want to capture the magic moments they experience underwater to share with other divers and non-divers alike. With so many different underwater cameras available it has become easier and more fun than ever to capture images of your underwater scuba adventures. The PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course gets you going quickly, whether you use a point-and-shoot camera or a sophisticated dSLR like the pros. PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 10 years old are eligible to take the Digital Underwater Photographer course. Because underwater photography is also popular with snorkelers, there is an option for avid snorkelers and skin divers to complete the course.
