Hello and Happy New Year! Welcome back to my blog and the first of 2017. This year looks like it could be a big year for Peach Snaps Underwater Photography. With a new team assembled and brand new camera equipment I am all ready to go.
My new team members and business partners are PADI instructors Adriana Guerra and Maddy ‘Mad Dog’ Barker. These two will be teaching everything from open water to rescue courses and a whole range of specialties courses too. Between the three of us, we can offer you all the skills needed to become a great underwater diver and photographer. These skills include Peak Performance Buoyancy, Nitrox (for a longer underwater time), Wreck and Deep Diving. These extra skills will enable you to get closer to your subject and help you get the perfect photo.
If you wish to do a photography course, your options include, one and a half days, two and a half days or three and a half days. Whichever course you decide to do the aim is to concentrate on what you want most out of the course and I will tailor the course to what you are most interested in, whether is be Macro, Wide Angle or perhaps both.
We always include a lecture on the marine life and the key to understanding their behavior, which will help when it comes to getting the shot you want. We have also launched the new one hour drop-in classes specially for those who are already advanced in underwater photography but would like to spend some time talking through certain techniques or practice them in the class room without committing the time and cost of a full photography course. Please note that there is no certification required to partake in these classes.
Also new to Peach Snaps underwater photography is my long awaited camera equipment. Now adding to my already wide range of kit I now have a Nikkon D80 with subal housing for anyone that would like to do the course with a DSLR. One of the most exciting bits of new kit is the snoot. This lets you concentrate the light of a strobe into a pinpoint or a specific small shape so you can concentrate the light on the main subject of the photo and nothing else. This creates for some dramatic macro shots and strange abstract images. As well as these photography course options i still have prints of my best shots for sale at Sairee Cottage Diving and i can also be booked to take photos of your diving experience here in Koh Tao. 2017 looks like it could be the best year yet for Peach Snaps Underwater Photography.
