Photography courses on a Similan Liveaboard

Private Underwater Photography Lessons

Whether you are just starting out with a camera or looking to take better underwater photographs, Richard also offers private photography lessons and courses.

You will get to join Richard aboard a three or five day liveaboard safari, diving with him for a day or two or even for the entire trip, improving your photography at the Similan Islands and world famous Richelieu Rock on the Similan Explorer.

Unlike other underwater photography courses there is no set program when learning with Richard.

Richard will concentrate on what you want to learn, taking into account your experience level, type of equipment you use and importantly, what interests you the most. You may wish to gain a more thorough understanding of your camera’s settings, how to achieve better strobe lighting or focus more on wide angle or macro photography. What ever your goal is, Richard can help you get better underwater shots.

During your day you will discuss theory with Richard then get to dive together and put this theory into practise. After the dives there is ample time to review your images and discuss what works best and how you can improve. Diving one on one is the best way to get the most out of your lessons. You can dive at your own pace and spend more time practising your shots.
