What is the Photo & Video Diver Specialty Course?

Over the period of 2 dives you will learn the correct techniques we employ when making Dive Photos and Videos, making sure to not only capture great photos but also look after the environment and our own equipment. 

The scuba diving around Koh Tao takes place on great coral reefs with an amazing amount of tropical marine life, which gives us fantastic locations to use for our diving photo training, which means the we can actually spend more time on the dives practicing our photography and videography rather than having to spend a lot of time finding items of interest!

This Diving Specialty Course is available for anyone that has a diving license, is 10 years or older, and medically fit
