Visions In The Sea was founded in 1997 by Ocean Optics, specialists in underwater photography, and Colin Doeg, co-creater of The British Society of Underwater Photographers. The concept was to bring the worlds top underwater photographers to a British audience so that skills could be shared and our clients could learn from leading experts how to take better underwater photographs.
Nine years on, Visions remains without parallel in the United Kingdom.
2005 again sees an event which firmly focuses on providing the Visions delgates with real world skills that they can apply immidiately to their own photography. As always, Visions brings together top underwater image makers with professional track records as over achievers who are going to share their hard won experience with you on the day.
As the organisers say “The bottom line is this - if you want underwater images that are better next year than they were last, then there’s only one place to be in October; Visions.”
