Service Description

You will see amazing marine life when you are exploring but sometimes seeing is not enough. You may want to capture the moment to show family and friends or enjoy again for yourself. If you have never used a camera in the water it is different and the SSI Photo and Video program teaches you the skills needed to freedive safely with an underwater camera set up. In addition It provides you with the in-depth knowledge and experience you need to effectively use, maintain, and store your equipment. You will learn how to approach and interact with your underwater subjects, and what the effects of light and visibility will have on your perfect shot and video. Whether you have your own camera or are using one of ours we will teach you how to prepare the camera before entering the water. During the two pool sessions we will look at your buoyancy with a camera, and awareness of your surroundings. You will practice taking pictures and video using still and moving subjects. Then in a post pool workshop we review and look at processing and editing techniques. You can add an optional open water freedive at Selsey Lifeboat Station. You instructor will take you on a dive and locate subjects for you to photograph and video. We will then review these with you post dive. Just ask for prices and dates. Is there a minimum age?
