What You Can Expect from Our Photo Workshops

  • Daily photo workshops - Our expert instructors will cover everything from equipment type and selection, choosing what's right for you, provide a high-level understanding of photography, discuss the concept of underwater photography, explain lighting and composition techniques, and offer practical hands-on tips, plus post-processing advice and more!

  • And most importantly, unlimited access to a wealth of knowledge and advice from our photo leaders.
 

Testimonials

  • "The daily workshops were fun and also informative for everyone on our boat, from novice photographers to experienced professionals. We learned tips and tricks about lighting, framing and even post-processing. I have since applied a number of the techniques during future trips and have noticed significant improvement in my photos."
  • "He was patient, knowledgeable, organized, and friendly. He had a concern for all of us--travel-wise and photography-wise. He was one of the best. I'm a better shooter as a result of their instruction."
  • "This was my first photography workshop, so I didn't know what to expect. They always stopped by to see my photos when I was working on them and offered feedback. They were always eager to answer questions when I had them. They were fun to dive with, too!"
  • "Fantastic - very patient with everyone and knowledgeable."
  • "Assistance on the boat, and generally accessible attitude, particularly helpful."
  • "Bluewater sent an excellent trip leader and teacher. I highly recommend him. He is patient, exceptionally knowledgeable, has an excellent demeanor, and great communication skills. I look forward to going on another workshop."
  • "Over many decades of diving, I've gone on a number of photo workshops on liveaboard trips, but none come close to the standard set by Mark Strickland! Every day we had an hour or more discussion about some aspect of underwater photography, including some specialized topics that helped a lot, plus an image review of three or four shots each diver had taken that day. Mark's critiques were always constructive and our photos got steadily better. Mark is also a great guy, fun to travel with, fun to dive with. He never minded being asked for help, either! All in all one of the best trips ever! And we for sure will go on another of his trips soon!"
  • Have a non-photographer buddy? No worries! We are also completely non-photographer friendly and always have a few non photographers joining our trips!
