Our workshops are open to professional and aspiring models, male or female and anyone who is interested in learning the art of movement in the water – you do not need to be a “model”, per se. Underwater photography is a beautiful medium and we are excited to share it with people of all backgrounds.

Our goal is to provide you with guidance to learn new skills, or improve the skills you already have, ranging from basic to advanced modeling techniques. There is plenty of one-on-one time to ask questions, learn at your own pace and make the most of your time.

You do not need to be a strong swimmer in order to attend, but you should be somewhat comfortable in the water. You will never be pushed out of your comfort zone and we will have assistants and safety measures in place.
