DIGITAL UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES AT MARINA RUBICON DIVING CENTERUnderwater Photography Courses at Marina Rubicon Dive Center

Our teaching is given by a specialist in this area, the Spanish underwater photography champion, Arturo J. Telle. You can see some of his photos in our gallery.

You can use our photographic equipment (Canon Digital SLR and compact cameras with waterproof housings) for the underwater photography courses, but it is better to use your own equipment if you have one.

The structure of our courses is very flexible, to give you the chance to learn at your own speed. Besides the programmed courses of PADI, we offer the possibility of an individual and personalised course with Arturo J. Telle, Spanish Underwater Photography Champion, with courses at two levels:

Diving Lanzarote Level 1: Initiation in Underwater Photography
This is a one and a half day-course. It includes approximately 4 hours of theoretical instruction and two dives. The teaching starts with the basic terms of photography and reaches up to a short introduction into the processing of digital images. This is the ideal course if you have no, or limited, technical knowledge of photography, giving you the adequate base for starting with underwater photography.

Diving LanzaroteLevel 2: Perfection of Underwater Photography
This is a two and a half day-course that includes approximately 6 hours of theoretical instruction and 4 dives. The teaching starts with a short review of the basic terms of photography, going through different techniques of illumination and composition, reaching up to advanced processing of digital images. This is the ideal course if you have some knowledge of photography and want to improve the quality of your pictures.

Besides these personalised courses we also have available standard PADI courses:
The PADI Digital Compact Camera Course will teach you the basic techniques of use and care of your photographic equipment, and introduce you into underwater photography. You’ll also learn safety rules and to understand the marine environment, as well as improve your diving and photography skills. This is a one day-course that includes all the necessary dive equipment, boat dives and the theoretical instruction.
The PADI Digital SLR Camera Course is for those who have some knowledge of underwater photography and want to improve the quality of their pictures. You’ll learn different aspects of the care and maintenance of the photography equipment, as well as different illumination techniques. You’ll also learn to process your digital images. This is a two day-course that includes all the necessary dive equipment, the boat dives and the theoretical instruction.

The target of this course is to get practical knowledge of:

  • the use of underwater photo equipment
  • preparation, care and maintenance of the photography equipment
  • focussing, composing and use of different illumination techniques
  • the proper use of the dive gear
  • computer edition of digital images

We can’t make you a professional photographer in a few days, but what we can do is give you the technical and practical knowledge that will help you to improve your underwater photography skills, using a digital compact or SLR camera.
