From Alex:

Alex Mustard today announced his new book Underwater Photography Masterclass. It is a brand new instructional book covering classic and cutting edge techniques, which are covered in detail by an author whose experience is clear on every page. The book is already printed and available for pre-order. Shipping times vary with region but are expected to be from late March to late April.

It covers all aspects of underwater photography, from equipment to novel creative techniques, but its focus is particularly on light and lighting,” Alex told Wetpixel. “It is based on the techniques and advice that really works for me and that I have seen really work for the students on my workshops. It is also packed with detailed, the real world tips that I have picked up shooting all around the world and exchange ideas over the last 15 years here on Wetpixel.”

I am really proud of it and I can’t wait to hear what people make of it. I worked very hard putting it together, it is designed to be very easy to use in the field. It is a travel friendly size, but packed with content. I tried not to waste a single sentence. The book is structured to be read from front to back, but because each new spread covers a new topic or technique you can dip back into it, on any page, for refreshers, even between dives. I’ve tried to write something fresh, so whatever you’ve read before you’ll want to read this too.”
