Looking for the right photo workshop
Posted 28 January 2009 - 02:03 PM
I guess in all I'm looking at spending $3000 if I do it. Before I commit, I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience of any previous ADM photo weeks. If so, can you tell me if I would fit in as a recreational BSAC OWI/PADI MSDT. I see that there will be several competitions, but I can't tell how much educational time (classroom etc) they offer.
I'm just starting to look into it, as I decided to travel just last night. Any pointers to other photo courses around that time would be much appreciated. I don't have to go to the Caymans, I'm based in Sacramento, California, anywhere warm will do.....
Thanks in advance

Although not a week-long warm water photo seminar, the Northern California Underwater Photographic Society meets sort of close to you and has several very good educational seminars planned for this year starting out with Berkley White from Backscatter in February and Jack and Sue Drafahl in March. Check the NCUPS website (www.ncups.org) for more information.
I would agree with Phil also about the Bonaire Digital Shootout. Although I have never attended I know many uw photographers who thought it made a huge difference in their photography skills.
Jack and Sue Drafahl run photo weeks and are great teachers also, not only with photography skills but with Photoshop and Lightroom also. http://www.jackandsuedrafahl.com/
