Fundamentals of Underwater Imaging

Our introductory course, Fundamentals of Underwater Imaging (FUI), explores the basics of both underwater photography and videography. Designed to be a jumping-off point for someone looking to learn how to use their camera and truly understand how to take an underwater image, regardless of what specialty they eventually want to pursue. This 3-day course can be booked in a private one-on-one or small group session.

Intro to Camera Courses

Designed to help individuals get to know their cameras, this course is a half-day in the classroom followed by a dive. This curriculum does not include composition, strobes/light positioning, or settings theory.

All courses require an understanding of buoyancy. We are happy to help schedule any refreshers or Peak Performance Buoyancy courses to help ready each student and we may make suggestions to take some of these courses before booking a diver with less or infrequent experience.

Based in Southeast Florida

We encourage our FUI Courses to take place at the Blue Heron Bridge, a great training ground for those getting to know their cameras. We also have the ability to go out and photograph or film on one of the many boats that Southeast Florida has to offer. This means we can explore further imaging concepts like wide-angle wrecks and blackwater diving, as well as follow seasonal aggregations of marine life!
