Red Sea Photography Workshop Description
On Alex' workshops, the sole aim of the diving is photography. We will be going to the sites that are most productive for images and will be repeating sites, sometimes several times, to give you the opportunity to work on shots, change lenses, wait for the light to be in the correct place etc. Much of the diving will be very shallow and the timing of the dives during the day will usually be quite deliberate to get the optimum conditions for certain shots.
Alex will always decide on the itinerary of the trip with the dive guides and the Captain based on weather conditions and which sites are really producing. In 2016 there will be 2 weeks to chose from, each with a slightly different itinerary planned. The first week (4 - 11 June 2016) will focus exclusively on the Thistlegorm and schooling fish at Shark and yolanda. There will be approx 3 days at each location. This week has been chosen for the neap tides, which will make the diving all the more perfect. The second week (11June-18 June 2016) will visit a wider range of dive sites, including more of Ras Mohammed, Tiran and also is planned to cross to Gubal and Abu Nuhas.
The overall aim of Alex' workshops is simply to help you all get the best possible underwater images in the Red Sea, to make the most out of the week's photographic opportunities. We'll achieve this by doing photography focused dives (right style, right time of day, repeating sites etc), by Alex giving you the photo advice and information you need before the dives and by Alex leading group review sessions where you can get advice, inspiration and feedback from the rest of the group. Alex will always be available to offer advice and ideas on a 1:1 level and he has build a strong reputation as one of the most dedicated and hard working trip leaders around. Alex will also cover some post processing tips (using Lightroom) during these review sessions, but the main focus of this workshop is getting the shots right in camera.
As is well known, Alex' workshops do not have a competition element, which he feels greatly encourages an open, sharing environment on board for the exchange of ideas and information. Alex is proud that on his workshops you will not just learn from him, but that everyone in the group will bring interesting and valuable ideas and opinions that will benefit all our photography.
