JOIN BONNIE PELNAR FOR A 10 DAY PHOTO WORKSHOP!

14th Annual Underwater Photo Workshop & Contest - 10 Days!
Saturday, July 11 through Tuesday, July 21, 2014

with optional Isla Mujeres Whaleshark side-trip


This workshop is designed to show you how to use your digital camera and get the best shots possible when shooting underwater. No camera is too big or too small! Not only is this workshop a lot of fun, but you'll learn all about how to improve your underwater photography by shooting better and improving on what you've captured by using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

We've been running workshops for many years and they keep getting better every year, with lots of fun, prizes, photo pros and surprises! Here's your chance to get all your questions answered and improve your underwater photography skills.

Your instructor and host is Bonnie Pelnar. Bonnie has made 37 trips to Cozumel and she knows where and how to find the best Cozumel has to offer and can show you how to capture it with your camera. As an added bonus Bonnie will bring in a second photo pro (TBD) to help conduct the workshop.

whalewharkWe will also be organizing an optional pre-workshop 3-night trip to Isla Mujeres to snorkel with the whalesharks on July 9 & 10 (arrival on July 8, depart for Cozumel on July 11). On Saturday, July 11 we plan to dive in Cancun in the Underwater Sculpture Park by Jason deCaires Taylor, then head over to Cozumel to check-in for our 10-day workshop there. The price of this add-on trip will be announced soon. This side trip sells out fast, so sign up early!

Course prerequisites: You must be a certified diver with good diving skills to attend this workshop. The coral reefs are very fragile, so we want to be assured that you have your buoyancy under control before you decide to dive with a camera. If you are comfortable with your buoyancy but haven't dived in a while and would like a refresher, a course in buoyancy control will be available through the dive shop on Saturday and/or Sunday before the workshop begins. There is an extra fee for this refresher course. It is highly recommended if you're not comforable with your buoyance while carrying a camera.
