Unruly Subjects 101: Essential knowledge for any would-be underwater photographer

The May Instructor Development Course is well and over, but our new Instructors are not done soaking up as much of resident PADI Course Director Richard’s knowledge as they can.

Over the weekend the OWSI started a few additional speciality instructor courses, with PADI Course Director Richard leading the pack.

Most visually impressive of the courses is the PADI Digital Underwater Photography course.

Richard has a wealth of knowledge thanks to years of experience on this subject, as you can see from our photography collection as well as the images that decorate the product pages of our website.

Our Open Water Scuba Instructors, presently Photography Speciality Instructor students, thus has the opportunity to truly master the camera before becoming UW Photography instructors themselves.

Have a peek at the Facebook album from the course and you’ll see that the students produced some stunning shots, all by using Downbelow’s rental Canon G12’s with Underwater Housing.

After the fun they had with the photography course, the students will also tackle the Nitox, Wreck, Deep & Fish ID Instructor courses, to help them reach the PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer level and position them perfectly for employment in the industry.
