Summer in Key Largo may offer the world’s best underwater classroom, with clear water and massive fish populations within the protected waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the special Sanctuary Preservation Areas (no-take zones) off Key Largo. Our group operates as a private charter aboard Ocean Divers’ 48-foot custom Newton dive boat. Set up perfectly for day diving with underwater photographer’s convenience in mind, we enjoy a wide and stable platform, dual camera tables, camera rinse tanks, and fresh water showers.
An immersive week on location with Stephen Frink can show the workflow efficiencies and creative in-water photo techniques to make you a much more accomplished digital shooter. Our digital seminar is structured to optimize the hardware issues with digital SLR and mirrorless housings and strobes; as well as software used for browsing, archiving, and processing digital images.
This course is held only in the summer in Key Largo to assure the best possible weather and water clarity. Key Largo also offers the advantage of the infrastructure of Stephen’s studio, staff, and a legacy of over three decades of diving these reefs to assure the best possible photo opportunities.
The course template includes daily two tank dives and classroom sessions. There will be guest lectures by Photoshop guru Eddie Tapp as well. Eddie is a Canon Explorer of Light and a member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame, as well as being a very enthusiastic diver and UW photographer. The course is limited to 16 students to assure personal attention and ample review time for the projected digital images. Traditionally the limited participation means these courses sell out quickly, so book early to reserve a spot!
