TRIP TYPE

This trip is a GOPRO VIDEO WORKSHOP. It will be led by one of our GoPro video instructors and will include daily underwater GoPro video tutorials, in-water support, and one-to-one advice and guidance as required.

What to expect from our GoPro Video Workshops

  • Daily GoPro video workshops - Your instructor will schedule seminars each day on topics including, but not limited to, equipment type and selection, the concept of underwater videography, lighting and composition techniques, and post-processing. They will also include additional topics relevant to the location and your experience. See below for full list of topics.
  • In-water support - Where possible, each dive group will spend time underwater with the instructor, receiving in-water support and guidance on their shooting techniques.  Participants can also request in-water assistance during the workshop and the instructor will do his or her best to accommodate all requests. 
  • Consecutive days of practice & review - Each day you will have the opportunity to practice the techniques and skills learned in the previous day’s tutorials. If you are new to underwater GoPro videography you will likely see a vast improvement in just a few days.
  • Daily video reviews - You are strongly encouraged to bring your laptop, a thumb drive, edit your videos, and submit your shots for review from both the instructor and your peers. These are fun and interactive sessions encouraging you to improve throughout the trip.
  • Quality time with fellow GoPro videographers - Both new and experienced videographers from past workshops have expressed the advantages of joining a trip with like-minded divers with a passion for underwater videography.
  • Suitable for everyone - New and experienced videographers are welcome on all our trips. Gain the necessary skills to start shooting great GoPro videos, increase your confidence in finding the best underwater shots, or hone specific skills. We also encourage non-videographers to join, as many of them really enjoy the daily video reviews, and learning about underwater videography.

Enjoy free, unlimited access to a wealth of knowledge and advice from your GoPro instructor.
