Underwater Photo Teaching

If you want to learn how to take great shots of the underwater world, get in touch with me! I am currently based in Dauin, on Negros island in the Visayas. I sincerely believe that this is one of the world’s top spots for macro underwater photography. The amount of rare and unusual critters is just mind-boggling.

Just last week I taught a great student, Leo from California, how to shoot these critters. We saw, and photographed ghost pipefish, many different gobies, a turtle feeding on corals, sanddivers, anthiases, wrasses, dragonets, blennies, and many different shrimps.

We also worked quite a bit on image post-processing, a necessary step for good photography.

I am teaching out of Salaya Beach houses, which has the best possible infrastructure for underwater photography, with a dedicated camera room, camera rinse tanks at the dive shop, and even on the boat. The resort also has a very nice classroom with a huge screen for looking at photographs. The owners and the manager, my mate Marc, are all underwater photo and video aficionados, and it shows. Please get in touch with me (via email klaus@pacificklaus.com) if you are interested in learning to photograph underwater. The courses are tailored to the individual photographer, and completely flexible when it comes to starting dates and duration.
