Underwater Videography

Underwater videography offers keen SCUBA divers the opportunity to document the wonders of the underwater world. Our one month program allows students the time, resources and expert guidance required to master the art of underwater videography to a professional standard. 

Acquire the knowledge and practical skills required to master the art of underwater videography while exploring the incredible diversity of the stunning coral reefs of the warm Indian Ocean. The course uses dSLR cameras in Sea&Sea housings; Panasonic video cameras and GoPros together with exceptional LED lighting and accessories.

Developed by National Geo and BBC talent Ryan Johnson and underwater camerawoman Fiona Ayerst, this course will empower students to see and explore the underwater realm in a totally new and intimate manner.

Apart from learning solid skills, you will also focus on becoming part of the marine world; using specialised breathing techniques and capitalising on the natural curiosity of the marine inhabitants. Fiona’s team will teach you how to capture the perfectly structured and composed film.

Highly recommend the underwater photography course

Loved loved LOVED every second I spent with Africa Media! I was blessed with an incredible group of people, one that I consider family forever, and learned about the South African culture, from braais to the language, to the people. Highly recommend the underwater photography course to ANYONE interested in spending a month diving with a camera in hand to capture all the magnificent creatures Africa has to offer.

Epic

This course is amazing!! The wildlife you're exposed to is crazy, from whales to manta rats and awesome macro critters like seahorses whilst being surrounded in paradise and friendly locals. The amount you learn is crazy, basically a person who’s never held a camera at the start will leave with significantly improved photos that they would be so proud of!  Great value for money & such a great experience!!
