I am using drysuit since a few years for all dives when I am doing photography. In both cases: warm water like RedSea or diving in cold water under the Ice, the buoyancy in dry suit can be controlled very well. But everyone need time to practice, and I would say that it is difficult to learning the photography and diving in dry suit at the same time. I figure out that diving in dry suit and side mount is a bit easier to get shots against surface because of a better flexibility of the body.
During taking a photo sometimes my legs goes up, and I stay with my head down. For this You have to control the buoyancy with BCD not with DrySuit.
Underwater Photographer behavior is quite close to technical diver, so any kind of training like GUE or any other I would recommend to became master of buoyancy and trim to get nice pictures
