Marty Snyderman is on Grand Cayman until the 25th March to outfit his signature room at Sunset House, and will be available to offer friendly, professional photo tips at the resort’s My Bar on several evenings throughout the week. All that you have to do is stop by to say “Hello,” and bring your list of questions. You can also get a free trial download of Vivid-Pix Picture-Fix, a fast and easy photo editing software specifically designed for underwater photos. Company founder Rick Voight will personally show you how to use the software to improve underwater photos, and he will also help you share them online with family and friends back home.
Whether you are a pro or an amateur, if you love underwater photography, this is a perfect time to mingle with two of the best in the business – Marty Snyderman and Cayman’s own Cathy Church, owner of Cathy Church’s Photo Centre, who will also participate. Dive Training Magazine is also a sponsor of the week’s events. To make a night of it, Sunset House offers a daily Happy Hour that runs from 6:00-8:00 so you can party with a purpose. Drawings will be held to give away a series of autographed prints of Marty Snyderman’s marine wildlife photos. The proceeds will be donated to the Cayman Magic Reef Recovery effort.
From My Bar, Rick Voight will host a virtual community of divers as they share the Cayman experience on Facebook at www.facebook.com/vivid-pix-fix. He and Snyderman invite all local divers and friends to come out, share a drink, and see what is happening in underwater photography.
“Divers are a worldwide community, and more and more people are getting involved in underwater photography because of how easy it has become,” states Voight. “We’re here to be a part of this community, to have fun sharing these pictures and to help worthwhile causes like the Cayman Magic Reef Recovery.”
Snyderman and Voight arrived with hammers in hand to create the Marty Snyderman Signature Room at Sunset House. Sunset House General Manager Keith Sahm says it’s a celebratory week with a serious message. “The idea behind our signature room campaign is to promote the beauty of the ocean as seen through the eyes of professional and passionate underwater photographers to encourage those who see the photos to act to save this fragile marine environment.”
The informal photo sessions have been taking place on several evenings throughout the week from 6 – 8 pm at My Bar.
