DIGITAL UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHER One Of The Most Popular Diving Specialties

The PADI Digital UW & UW Photographer Courses with THE PLAYGROUND DIVE SHOP

Underwater photography is one of the most popular diving specialties, and the rise of digital underwater photography has made it easier and more fun than ever. This is why there are actually two PADI underwater photography courses. The PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course gets you going quickly with today modern digital equipment, whether you use a point-and-shoot snap camera or a sophisticated D-SLR like the pros. The PADI Underwater Photographer course is a more traditional photography course designed for conventional film equipment.


The Fun Part

It's a great way to relive the adventures you’ve had, plus capture images to share with your friends and family.

What You Learn

  • How to choose the right underwater camera system for you
  • The PADI SEA method for getting great shots quickly
  • The three primary principles for good underwater photos

For all your learning materials andequipment, contact THE PLAYGROUND DIVE SHOP.


Your Next Adventure

Two excellent specialties to pair with underwater photography are the PADI Enriched Air Diver course, and the PADI Dry Suit Diver course on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver. The PADI Enriched Air Diver course allows you to extend your time underwater so you have more time to capture images. In cooler climates, a dry suit allows you to dive comfortably longer, and to make more dives.

You may also find the Peak Performance Buoyancy course gives you helpful tips to optimize your weighting and skills so you’ll be in better position to capture that perfect picture.

For more information about this or other PADI courses have a chat with one of the THE PLAYGROUND DIVE SHOP Team members.
