13th Annual Underwater Photo Workshop & Contest - 10 Days!
Saturday, July 12 through Tuesday, July 22, 2014

We've been running workshops for many years and this one will be the biggest and best of them all 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.

Everybody is bringing cameras to capture the beautiful reefs of Cozumel. 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.

Check out the Scuba Club photo scrapbook for snapshots from previous workshops.

Your instructor and host is Bonnie Pelnar. Bonnie has made 36 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, Marty Snyderman will be joining Bonnie in conducting this workshop. Marty and Bonnie have worked together for many years teaching underwater photography online and through various workshops and seminars.

In addition to the presentations, slide shows and seminars, Bonnie and Marty will be available to dive with you each day. We will set up a special photographer's boat, so if you wish to dive with the rest of the shooters, you are welcome to come along.

whalewharkWe will also be organizing a post-workshop 1-day trip to Isla Mujeres to snorkel with the whalesharks for July 22. If you wish to join this trip you will need to book one extra night at Scuba Club Cozumel and depart on Wednesday, July 23. Cost of the trip is about $200. Sorry, our boats are sold out, but you can still come with us and get on another boat. We'll make the reservation for you!

Course prerequisites:
You must be a certified diver with intermediate to advanced 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. Its highly recommended if you're not comforable with your buoyance while carrying a camera.
