Learn Underwater Photography in Swanage, Dorset

Updated: Jul 8

The Ocean Studio is open every day for both half-day and full day courses to help you master both your photography and underwater photography skills in Swange, Dorset.

From starting out with film with my Canon SLR back in 1997 to then moving to digital with the Canon 10D, all of my topside wildlife and ocean images are taken with my Canon system.

My underwater work is with a variety of Canon, Olympus and Fujifilm Compact Cameras over the past 20 years, as well as shooting with both a Go Pro and an iPhone in a Sealife SportDiver housing. I used both INON Z-330 and Backscatter MiniFlash 2 strobes plus MARES torches and video lights.

You are welcome to pop by any day between 12 pm - 5 pm for a chat. I also have a Canon 2100 Large Format Printer where you can see your own images come to life as either prints or canvas prints. I have a variety of both close-up and wide angle lenses made by Backscatter/AO1 for Go Pros and both INON and Fuji wide-angle lenses for compact cameras, plus lighting systems and filters. I have torches and video lights courtesy of Mares Just Add Water and a Sealife SportDiver Housing for a phone.

I am also busy visiting school fetes on ocean conservation issues, giving school talks on photography, visiting camera clubs, helping others online to develop their underwater photography skills, writing for magazines such as The Guild of Photographer recently and am just finishing my third book "Getting Started in Underwater Photography" with more exciting news in the pipeline.

For up-to-date news and pop on over to my studio website at .
