Professional underwater photographer Andy Davies, together with the West Wales Dive Company and Cameras Underwater, are pleased to offer underwater photography workshops based at the National Trust's Education Centre at Stackpole and at WWDC's teaching centre at Broad Haven North.
West Wales has some of the best underwater scenery and wildlife in the UK on offer, boasting its very own Skomer Marine Conservation Zone and the Pembrokeshire Marine Special Area of Conservation. We will explore shallow reefs that have an abundance of marine life from exquisite jewel anemones to playful Atlantic grey seals.
Regardless of the weather, there is always somewhere sheltered to dive. Participants are required to be comfortable diving or snorkelling in UK waters and the weekend workshop involves relaxed shore snorkelling or diving at sites that are not exposed to currents and have a maximum depth of 15m. Optional boat dives are available at additional cost.
Workshops run from June through to the end of September. Please contact Andy for dates.
Participants arrive Friday evening for an introductory talk. Saturday morning is devoted to a dry session followed by a shore dive in the afternoon. We all get together for an early evening picture review followed by dinner.
Two shore dives are carried out on Sunday with one of these being an optional boat dive (subject to numbers and weather conditions) costing around £25.
St. Brides Bay Weekend Workshop - £220. Accreditation for the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer is available at an additional cost of £20.
