Digital Underwater Photographer Instructor Course
Digital Underwater Photography Instructor Course in Thailand
Digital Underwater Photography has taken the world by storm. For all divers, learning how to take great underwater pictures has a huge appeal so they can show their friends and family, share on social media or to publish in magazines and books.
There are many reasons why divers want to take great underwater photographs. As a PADI Digital Underwater Photography specialty instructor, you can teach your student divers how to use the PADI SEA (Shoot, Examine and Adjust) method, a technique that takes full advantage of the latest digital technology.
Not only will your student divers learn to take great underwater photographs, they will learn how to optimise their work on a computer, for storage and printing, even on their first dive.
Underwater Photography diving around Koh Tao
One of the most important reasons divers take this course is to create lasting and priceless memories of their diving adventures. Koh Tao offers a marine diversity unlike many other locations around the world and provides an environment rich in colour, topography and species to take memorable pictures in.
With over 26 dive sites to choose from, Koh Tao is a superb training location to learn how to compose and shoot great photographs. As a PADI Digital Underwater Photography specialty instructor, you learn how to conduct the course effectively to student divers and get great shots quickly, whilst preserving the natural marine habitat.
