Month-long students will partake in 18 underwater SCUBA expeditions. In addition, there will be two sessions of pool-based SCUBA making up 20 SCUBA sessions in total. One pool session will focus on techniques to photograph and to work with human models underwater and the other on how best to capture macro life in water. The 18 open water SCUBA expeditions will concentrate on photographing and/or filming local marine wildlife- both wide-angle and macro subjects.
On occasions, it is necessary for participants to also do rock-pool work, dependent on their abilities and experience and the course director reserves all rights to convert one or, very occasionally, two open water SCUBA dives to SCUBA in shallower ocean pools, for the safety of participants and for learning purposes.
