Who should take this course?

Underwater photography is one of the most popular diving specialties and with so many underwater cameras to choose from it has become easier and more fun than ever to capture images of your underwater scuba adventures. The PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course gets you going quickly, whether you use a point-and-shoot camera or a sophisticated dSLR like the professionals.

Because underwater photography is also popular with snorkelers there is an option for avid snorkelers and skin divers to complete the course. Contact Scuba Evolution if this interests you.
