Welcome to the exciting world of underwater digital photography.

Nothing has changed photography so much in the last decade more than the introduction of digital photography. Digital cameras use electronics and computing techniques to produce images instead of film and chemicals. Digital photography has made taking good photographs above and below the surface easier than ever.

Whether you are new to digital photography or an experienced shooter, you will benefit from classes designed to meet your needs.
