BUNAKEN_LEMBEH_WORKSHOP.jpg

 

We are pleased to announce the second annual Underwater Tribe/NAD Lembeh Underwater Photography workshop for May 2014.  Even better, we are adding a second location to this wonderful photographic experience: a week of learning all about Wide Angle photography in the beautiful Bunaken National Park at the all new Thalassa Dive Resort.  In 2013, our five day photo workshop at NAD filled up very quickly and many folks suggested that a few days longer would have been a great addition to the class.  Well, this year we listened to everyone’s desires and we have broken it down into two distinct, yet interlaced, programs.  You can join us for 6 nights in Lembeh or 6 nights in Bunaken or for the true photo-holics, why not join us for all 12!  It’s going to be a great event and we are looking forward to it already.  May is one of the best months of the year in both Lembeh and Bunaken

 

7-13 May 2014 NAD Lembeh Resort

 

Site of our original workshop and the best muck diving on the planet, the Lembeh Strait will be our home for 6 nights and 17 dives.  We will arrive on the 7th and have an “Introduction and Set Up” evening before starting the diving portion of the event on the 8th.  Our daily schedule will include 3 dives per day on the 8-12th and a final 2 dives on the morning of the 13th.  Each day will also include afternoon and evening presentations from the photo instructors on a range of photography subjects from the basics to advanced macro techniques.  As per usual with an Underwater Tribe photo workshop, the instructors will dive with slates instead of cameras and help every participant with “one on one” underwater instruction.  We will also offer one to one photo critiquing each evening so that everyone gets a better understanding of what went right and what went wrong with their photos.

 

As we are diving in one of the best muck and macro destinations on the planet, we will be concentrating more on macro photography techniques during this portion of the workshop but basic lighting techniques will also be discussed.

 

13-19 May at Thalassa Resort

 

Feedback from last year’s successful photo workshop included several people requesting more “Wide Angle” for future workshops, therefore, we have listened and have included a Wide Angle week at the all new Thalassa Resort in the Bunaken National Park.  We have scheduled our arrival at Thalassa on the 13th of May until the 19th.  We plan to do two dives in Lembeh on the 13th along with lunch while packing our bags and heading over to Thalassa that afternoon.   On the 13th evening we will discuss plans for the rest of our time in the Bunaken side of north Sulawesi and start diving with Thalassa the following morning.  For anyone interested in just the Bunaken portion of the workshop they would arrive on the 13th.  Our schedule is for 3 dives per day on the 14th -17th, 2 on the 18th and departure on the 19th.  We will be concentrating more on wide angle and advanced techniques while diving the walls of Bunaken along with the wonderful reefs closer to the resort.

 

The best thing about our 2014 workshop is that you can choose between a Lembeh workshop, a Bunaken workshop or get the biggest bang for your buck by joining us for both sessions and bring your underwater photography to the next level!

 

The NAD Lembeh portion of this workshop includes 6 nights in a beachfront room, all meals, 17 boat dives, photo tuition and the seminar, transport from the airport for $1260 USD per person based on twin sharing.  A single supplement is available for people who don’t want to share a room for $30 per night.  There are also bungalow options available for $1367 per person based on twin sharing.

 

For the Thalassa/Bunaken option the price is $1050 for 14 dives, photo tuition and seminar, transfer based on twin sharing.  A single supplement is available for $120.

 

For those lucky enough to be able to spend two weeks with us and enjoy diving in both Lembeh and Bunaken with 12 nights and 31 dives we offer a great promotional “combo package” for $2195 per person based on a twin share basis.

 

We are expecting this trip to fill up very quickly after the success of last years offering, therefore, please contact us for more information and booking details at info@underwatertribe.com

Alright, the new year has started, if one of your goals for the year is to improve your underwater photography skills then one of the best ways is to attend a photo workshop with award winning photographer Mike Veitch.  We still have space available for both the Lembeh and Bunaken portions of this workshop, we will be concentrating on improving your macro skills in Lembeh and wide angle skills in Bunaken.  You can choose either portion of the event or attend both, either way, you will enjoy a fun event with some great people and enjoy one on one underwater tuition from some of the worlds finest underwater photography instructors.  Contact us at info@underwatertribe.com for further information and bookings.

For the Thalassa portion of this workshop we have received some new photos of our Private Compound that we will be taking over as part of our 6 nights in Bunaken.  We will have this new compound all to ourselves, the perfect place to show and share our photos as well as conduct our lectures on the big screen. 

 

We have space for 4 more people for our Bunaken presentation, the 6 night/14 dive Bunaken workshop  will concentrate on learning more about wide angle photography and how to capture the perfect balance between natural and strobe lighting, over/unders, shooting with natural light and filters, capturing blue and black backgrounds for macro photography, shooting models, silhouettes, and of course discuss different techniques in Lightroom.  The diving will concentrate on the fish filled walls of Bunaken during the morning dives and then concentrate more on the fantastic macro photo opportunities in the area during the afternoons.  We will have 2 photo instructors on hand as well as dive guides for each buddy pair.

 

For more information please send us an email at info@underwatertribe.com
