Underwater Photography Courses

"The best way for you to get great images is to practice, practice, practice."


At Fin Photo we try to help you get the best images from your equipment you already have, or help you sift through all the options available for you to make your next Underwater Camera and accessories purchase.


If we can't be taking your picture every dive, then allow us the opportunity to share our passion for underwater photography with you.


When you enroll in on of our underwater photography or videography courses you will be introduced to the fundamental skills required to obtain good results. Just as our photo center is designed as a working "portrait studio" our classes continue that theme and are designed to keep the classroom work to a minimum while sharing key information. The primary focus of every class we teach is the actual underwater work. We customize each class to you and your needs. No two students are alike for us at Fin Photo and we strive to help you get the most out of your time with us. If you have recently made an investment in a camera, housing or other accessory and want to find out the best way to use it, let us help you.


The work area of Fin Photo is ideal - well lit for camera preparation, camera storage space is always available, and multiple computers for reviewing digital images.

The most valuable part is the critique session with your Instructor where you gain insight into how to improve your shots next time!
