Accessible Underwater Photography

Taking photographs underwater is seen by many to be a daunting subject. Potentially expensive and sometimes difficult to understand. People are often put off before they’ve even given it a chance, believing that the route to good underwater photography means that they need to spend a fortune and possess ninja like underwater imaging expertise.

Alphamarine Photography believe that if you are given the best advice then the initial expense can be minimised, and you won’t spend needlessly to gain a foothold in this fun and rewarding hobby.

We are Anne and Phil Medcalf and between us we have over 40 years diving experience and over 25 years taking pictures underwater. We'll help you navigate the minefield that is buying an underwater camera setup and once you have it we can provide you with the skills you need to produce great images through underwater photography courses and photo editing workshops we run ourselves near Manchester, around the UK in conjunction with diving clubs and overseas. We also provide one to one tuition at our home in Manchester covering underwater and general photography and also photo editing using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

We currently write regular articles on underwater photography for Scuba Diver magazine, links to all of these that we’ve so far produced can be found here. We have our own blog on this website which rated 22 in The Adventure Junkies list of the Top 25 Underwater Photography Blogs of 2019. It covers a range of underwater photography, photo editing, diving and travel topics, here. If there is something you’d like us to cover send an email to info@alphamarinephoto.com and we’ll put something together.
