In Topic: Traveling with underwater camera to international destination - packing tips...

I put my camera in the housing and take out one o-ring.  Then I hand carry the housing.  I put my strobes in my laptop bag.  Arms and synch cords go in check in.

Never had an issue with any airline, I put the housing under the seat in front of me, don't ask for emergency aisle though as you tend to not be able to put things under the seat in emergency...

In Topic: The Value of Underwater Photo Workshops?

 Just know that noone is going to show you how to point your strobes, etc. actually in the water. They may show you how they do it, then let you follow suit. Mainly, I learn best from showing diagrams, with images of different strobe positions (i.e. if you set them up this way, here is an example of what you get), talking it through, then doing it. 

Hi David, sorry to hear that some of your trip was not up to your expectations but sounds like the photo opps and company were good.

 

Just wanted to point out that what I have quoted above is not necessarily true, the workshops that we run we don't dive with cameras, only slates.  We work one on one with folks and actually do show how to point the strobes while underwater, which I find does help a lot to support the theory classes as well.
