Lembeh Resort | Best of Manado with Martyn

Our photographer Says...LAST SPACE MALE SHARE There is a multitude of weird and wonderful critters to photograph and nobody will be disappointed with the portfolio of images I will help them to build. Bankga is a place that I went to when I first started travelling around the world with my camera and the combination of macro and wide angle opportunities give this location a point of difference and a great combination with muck diving in Lembeh. There are coral reef wide angle opportunities for some great scenic shots as well as blue water for macro subjects. I cant wait to help people with their photography and have no doubt that participants will return with an improved skill set. MORE

Misool Eco Resort | Misool Photography Workshop

Our photographer Says...NOW FULL - Alex says at the start of 2019 Martin Edge and I jointly ran a workshop at Misool Eco Resort that is remembered so fondly by all lucky enough to be there. I am very excited to announce we are going back! The big change this time is my co-host. From an underwater photography perspective Martin is irreplaceable, so to serve up something rather different, but hopefully equally enticing, I have persuaded author, teacher, coral reef expert and Professor of Marine Conservation, Callum Roberts to come and share his knowledge and perspective. Callum has huge coral reef knowledge and I feel he will be a perfect fit with the ethos of Misool and his wise words will encourage us to photograph these richest of reefs with a really fresh perspective.

Solitude One - Philippines | Tubbataha

Our photographer Says...1 MALE SHARE SPACE This is one of the best places I have been to photograph classic coral reef scenery in with clear water and sunny conditions. There are loads of mighty schools, turtles galore and the place has a reputation for providing encounters with whale sharks and plenty of other big stuff. This is one a few locations in the Philippines where you can reliably dive with the big stuff and typically in 30m+ visibility, ocean water. Mantas, mobulas, reef sharks, eagle rays, tuna and dolphins all pitch up in this oasis of life in the middle of the Sulu Sea. Equally attractive are the thriving corals, especially hard coral and soft coral gardens and attractive sea fans. MORE

Oceania | Signature Itinerary

Our photographer Says...NOW FULL PNG has always had the most incredible reef diving, but the liveaboards working have not boasted the same standards of accommodation that divers enjoy elsewhere. MV Oceania totally changes that and this trip was planned back in 2018 when the boat was still being built, allowing us to reserve an October trip, right at the peak of the best diving season. The workshop will be based on MV Oceania, taking in their Signature Itinerary covering their three most popular diving areas of Kimbe Bay, Witu Islands and Fathers Reefs. The trip will start and finish directly at Walindi resort, the cruise preceded by a two night official pre-trip warm up MORE

Alex Mustard

Scuba travel has been running photography workshops with Alex Mustard since 2009.

We work carefully to build each trip around the timing for the best possible encounters. Alex’ workshops are always popular, aimed at enthusiastic underwater photographers. They are not competitive - it’s as important to have fun as it is to improve your skills and learn new techniques.MORE

Martyn Guess

Martyn has been taking underwater photographs for nearly 20 years having first learnt some basic skills on a holiday in Grand Cayman. Whilst the images were pretty awful he was completely smitten with the UW Photography bug and with his love of diving set out to learn how to improve his fledgling knowledge.MORE

Mario Vitalini

Mario has been involved in photography since his earliest years, starting on land. His first underwater camera was a Nikonos V in the late 1980s, and he’s been diving with a camera ever since. The technology has come a long way since then! MORE

Martin Edge

Now retired, however still very much part of the Scuba Travel family - watch out for news of his book launch in 2020. Mentor, coach, facilitator, educator. Whichever words are used to describe him, there is no doubt that Martin Edge is the most experienced and gifted instructor of underwater photography there is.MORE
