JOIN BONNIE PELNAR DIETZ FOR THE
21st Annual Underwater Photo Workshop and Contest
10 Nights at Scuba Club Cozumel
July 8-18, 2023
This workshop is designed for the underwater photographer who wants to take better pictures. No camera is too big or too small and all skill levels are invited.
Here's your chance to get all your questions answered and improve your underwater photography skills. 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. 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 will dive with you each day. We arrange special photographer's boats, so we don't hold up the other divers. We go nice and slow! If your non-shooting spouses wish to dive with the rest of the shooters, they are welcome to come along. See prices below.
We also do one-on-one image review sessions with all the workshop participants, giving you a private critique of your images, as well as tips on how to improve your shooting techniques.
The evening before departure we wind things up with a wonderful awards ceremony, where we present the contest winners and distribute prizes to all. We've been running workshops for many years and they keep getting better every year, with lots of fun, prizes, and surprises!

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. Please read the detailed prerequisites here.
