Capturing Critters in Lembeh is the biggest Underwater Photography event in the Lembeh Strait and is attended by photographers and videographers from all over the World.

Oonasdivers is delighted to announce that their very own Dr Alex Tattersall will be guest hosting this incredible workshop in January 2021 at the luxurious Lembeh Resort where no matter what level of photographer or videographer you are, you’ll learn how to take your underwater imaging to the next level.

The Capturing Critters workshop at Lembeh Resort is a very special photography event. You will arrive and be welcomed into the luxurious tropical surroundings where you can browse the unique timetable of events which will inspire you in many directions. The sessions draw on the knowledge and skills of several facilitators and offer group talks focused on critter photography, underwater videography, post processing and marine biology. Alongside the group talks, daily individual one-to-one sessions are scheduled which will allow you to push your own personal practice in a non-competitive and supportive environment.

The Lembeh Strait’s sheer abundance of biodiversity and rare critters has led to it being named the ‘Critter Capital of the World’ where every dive reveals countless unique finds. See the weird and wonderful and experience the best muck diving sites whilst enjoying Lembeh Resort’s secluded location with its tropical gardens and wonderful facilities.

You can choose the length of your stay as packages are available from £1985 for the 7 night/17 dives workshop, £2495 for the 9 night/22 dives workshop, and 3 nights/5 dives pre or post workshops from £595 each.
