Oonasdivers announce 2021 Atlantis Puerto Galera Photography Workshop with Alex Tattersall

Published

on

Dr Alex Tattersall, the active and award winning underwater photographer and founder of Underwater Visions, has teamed up with Oonasdivers to offer a fantastic Underwater Photography Workshop for 2021. Alex is the importer and distributor of the excellent Nauticam range of products for the UK, France and Ireland. This puts him in the perfect position to assist with both the many technical and artistic elements of your underwater photography.

His boundless enthusiasm for creatively capturing the underwater world and sharing these ideas and techniques with others has become the signature of his Oonasdivers photo workshops. He also has possibly the most extensive bag of underwater toys for all to play with including fluo filters, close up lenses, light shaping devices, laser snoots, and you can even have a go on his magic ball!

Alex says: “Few places that I have visited offer such a fantastic experience both above and below water and this trip holds some serious promise for both casual and serious photographers. Photographically there is a mix of white sand muck diving, coral critter diving and wide angle shooting further out on Verde Island. We have timed the trip in line with the tides so we can spend some time exploring further afield.”

Atlantis Puerto Galera is beautifully built into the hills of Sabang and has a great beachfront location; in many travel guidebooks and magazines Atlantis is quoted as one of the most outstanding resorts of the Philippines with its award winning (Flintstones) design.

Dates: 27 April – 7 May 2021 (departing UK 25 April)

Price: From £2695 per person excluding flights – flights from £725

Includes: 11 nights’ accommodation, all meals, unlimited scheduled boat diving (up to 5 dives a day including night diving), unlimited internet access, Nitrox, Verde Island day trip, $100 Resort Credit

Should I Switch Scuba Diving Training Agencies For 2021? (Watch Video)

Published

on

Thousands of Dive Instructors are out of work, due to Covid-19. Many will not return to scuba diving. And this has the dive training agencies very worried.

For the first time in my career, instead of the usual ‘don’t forget to re-new your membership!’ emails, the main Dive training agencies are aggressively pursuing dive instructors and trying to convince them that life will be better if they cross over to their agency.

I decided to pick up the phone and call around the different agencies to get their best offers. It didn’t go well….

Thanks for watching! D.S.D.O, James
