Would you like to bring back memories of your underwater experiences to share with your friends and family?

Underwater photography is the perfect way to bring back memories of your underwater experiences. Best of all, you can then share those experiences with both your diving and non-diving friends and family. Underwater photographers naturally develop a better knowledge of underwater life than most divers and tend to become more observant with practice.

Underwater photography is an ideal companion for the vacationing diver or any diver who wishes to preserve or describe what is seen underwater. If you love telling people about what diving is all about, then this is for you!

Digital has taken the underwater photography world by storm. Get in on the action with the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer specialty course. You can quickly and easily capture the underwater world with your camera and on your computer.

  • You have to be a certified PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver (or qualifying scuba diving certification from another organization).
  • The minimum age to enroll in the course is 10 years old.
  • A digital camera with an underwater housing, definitely.
