JOIN BONNIE PELNAR DIETZ FOR A PHOTO/VIDEO WORKSHOP!

18th Annual Underwater Photo and Video Workshop
and Photography Contest
10 Days at Scuba Club Cozumel
Saturday, July 13 through Tuesday, July 23, 2019

WITH A PRE-WORKSHOP TRIP TO THE CENOTES

This workshop is designed to show you how to use your digital camera and get the best shots possible when shooting both still and video underwater. No camera is too big or too small! Not only is this workshop a lot of fun, but you'll learn all about how to improve your underwater photography by shooting better and improving on what you've captured by using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

We've been running workshops for many years and they keep getting better every year, with lots of fun, prizes, photo pros and surprises! Here's your chance to get all your questions answered and improve your underwater photography skills.

This year your instructor and hosts are Bonnie Pelnar and a guest presenter TBA. Bonnie has made over 40 trips to Cozumel and she knows where and how to find the best Cozumel has to offer and can show you how to capture it with your camera. 

In addition to the presentations, slide shows and seminars, Bonnie and/or the guest presenter will dive with you each day. We arrange several special photographer's boats, so if your non-shooting spouses wish to dive with the rest of the shooters, they are welcome to come along.

The evening before departure we wind things up with a wonderful awards dinner and ceremony, where we present the contest winners and distribute prizes.

If your would like to attend please contact Bonnie to reserve your spot. A $200 deposit is required.* We can not accept walk-ins that have not contacted Bonnie in advance.

Course prerequisites: You must be a certified diver with good diving skills to attend this workshop. The coral reefs are very fragile, so we want to be assured that you have your buoyancy under control before you decide to dive with a camera. If you are comfortable with your buoyancy but haven't dived in a while and would like a refresher, a course in buoyancy control will be available through the dive shop on Saturday and/or Sunday before the workshop begins. There is an extra fee for this refresher course. It is highly recommended if you're not comfortable with your buoyancy while carrying a camera.
