What equipment do I need?

You do not need a DSLR to take decent underwater pictures. But if you want to improve your photography skills you should have a camera (even a compact one) that has full manual options.

Of course, to take most cameras under water you will need an underwater housing as well. This needs to be a compatible, submersible housing (waterproof to -40 meters/130 feet, at the very least) that allows you to use all functions of the camera under water. Minimum one external strobe is a plus.


Who is it for?

This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn (or improve in) Underwater Photography.

How long will it take?

The starters course is divided into 6 chapters. They all end with a Knowledge Assessment consisting of 5 questions. It is best to start the following chapter after you have successfully answered the 5 Knowledge Assessment questions of the previous chapter. I also suggest not to wait too long between ending a chapter and starting the next one.

The actual duration of the course really depends on you. You can study at your own pace. At any rate, the 1 year-license gives you more than enough time to complete the full course.
