Underwater Photographer

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 pros.

Through hands-on training during two scuba dives and guidance from your PADI Professional, you’ll discover:

  • How to choose the right underwater camera system for you.
  • The PADI SEA (Shoot, Examine, Adjust) method for getting great shots quickly.
  • Principles for good composition of underwater images.
  • Practical techniques to take great photos with your digital camera.

Get credit! The second dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.

Sign up for Digital Underwater Photographer Online – PADI’s eLearning option – to get started immediately. The web-based system guides you through the principles of great underwater photography, with a bonus section on underwater imaging (including video). You study at your own pace through an easy-to-use, interactive program. You also have access to an online version of the Digital Underwater Photographer Manual.

You’ll need a digital underwater camera and a computer or other device for downloading and viewing your images. Your PADI Pro may suggest additional equipment and accessories depending on your camera system.

Cost: $199 not including price of charter. Charter of your choice is discounted $20 for specialty students.

  • Be aware that PADI specialty classes do not allow students to be in any type of overhead environment making Lanai not a good charter on which to do specialties.
  • Most specialty courses can be completed as beach dives, however, completing them off the boat is an option.
  • You do not need to be a PADI certified diver to do PADI Specialty courses. Equivalent certification from any recognized scuba certification agency is fine (NAUI, SSI, SDI, CMAS, etc.).
  • As with any training, you will need to complete the PADI Medical Questionnaire and get Physician’s clearance if needed.
