Alphamarine Photography can offer a range of workshops and courses

Having the correct skills and knowledge is more important in underwater photography than the equipment you are using.

We offer classroom based underwater photography courses with a greater level of information and detail than traditional courses offered by most training agencies. As well as learning about camera operation and housing care, we'll teach you how to compose your images, give you the chance to handle equipment you may not already have such as lenses and strobes. But most of all we'll give you the hints and tips which you rarely get told but will make your underwater photography easier and your pictures better.

We also run photo editing workshops using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. We'll show you from the essentials of organising and editing pictures in Lightroom to more advanced techniques using Photoshop's Content Aware editing. These courses cover land and underwater photography. 

If you prefer more specific and personal tuition we do one to one teaching based on hourly or daily rates. Get in touch for details.

As well as running courses ourselves in Manchester we also work with Clubs and Dive Centres

See our EVENTS page for upcoming dates.

Talks and Workshops For Diving Clubs

As well as running our own workshops in Manchester we also give talks on underwater photography to scuba diving clubs around the UK. We only charge travel expenses to do this and have no objection to the club charging an entrance fee and keeping any proceeds made beyond our fuel costs for the journeys. 

We also run underwater photography and photo editing workshops in conjunction with clubs and dive centres around the UK. For this we charge a fee and expenses with all additional profits going to the host organisation. This can be a good way for a club to boost its funds relatively easily while offering members something different from the usual courses and events.

We are happy to work with clubs and centres affiliated to any training organisation. We'll also happily come and talk to photography clubs etc.
