  1. Hey guys! My name is Tom Park and i'm a Dive Master and Pro Underwater Photographer from Australia. I get asked this all the time so I made a video with my top 5 tips and tricks to improve your UW photos. I hope you all enjoy and learn something from this Happy shooting! Tom
  2. Good day everyone, After years of following WetPixel (WP) on Instagram I've taken the plunge and formally joined. I recently upgraded from a mirrorless 4/3* to a full frame Nikon D850. Wow what a camera! Shooting it in a Nauticam housing with the vacuum system, which I love. For strobes I use the YSD2 J's from Sea & Sea and the Z240's from Inon. Our last trip I added two Nauticam 70x300mm carbon fiber float arms. I thought I had my rig neutrally buoyant before, but I was wrong. Being able to have the camera float at depth for 10-15 seconds before slowly sinking was a joy to behold. At times I found myself playing with my rig if I couldn't find a compelling shot or was completing the safety stop. I've been diving since late 2006 and took up UW Photography in early 2014, so still learning a lot. I like to say I'm a diver first and a photographer second, which is true most of the time. For the past four years my wife and I travel around 100 days a year and 2/3 of that is diving and shooting. In 2011 I made my first trip to the Solomon's and have returned once since then, but have trips planned in 2020 and 2021. 2017 was our first introduction to Indonesia, where we have returned three times since then with more on the books in the next two years. I am almost over diving in the Caribbean, as Indo and the Pacific has a hold on me. As far as shooting I tend to prefer macro as I can control the foreground and background easier, but I am enjoying the challenge of wide angle. At this point in my craft I'm trying to move away from the animal ID shot and become more artistic. I can easily spend 10-40 minutes on a single subject/setup. We have been attending workshops from Backscatter for techniques and post processing with Erin Quigley and Jim Decker. I've also attended three of their Digital Shootouts. If anyone is interested I have a hobby website http://brownduckphoto.comthat does not get as much attention as it should. Best, Andy *eventually listed in the classifieds

  5. Hi Everyone!! I am new to underwater photography, but not new to the ocean. I recently graduated with a B.S. degree in Biology and will embark this year on several trips around the world as I dive into a several research projects. I focus on marine microbiology and coral reef ecology and virology. I am in the market for a new camera and I have no idea where to begin. Any help and advice is so appreciated. I have some grant money that I can use to buy a camera, but my max budget is around $1500. I am going to Tubbataha and Palau in two weeks for a dive trip, and need something that will help me photograph the reefs. I will also begin research on manta rays this year, and I will need something capable of taking sufficient ID shots of their bellies. I realize having a strobe would be helpful, but I don't think I can afford that right now. So far, I am looking at buying used gear, the Olympus TG-5 with housing and wide angle lens, and the Canon GX7ii with housing and wide angle lens. Thank you!
  6. I get asked this question very often, so here goes, here is my Beginner and Intermediate gear advice. I've been shooting as a pro underwater photographer and videographer for a few years now so hope this helps! Happy shooting! 🤟
  7. Hey there, I would love to try my hand at UW photography but I am realizing that my basic photography knowledge and skills might not be enough to dive into UW photography. Does anyone have practical example for me to start with? Thank you so much. PS: I own a sony RX 100 mark II and I guess that the "RTFM" rule applies too!
  8. These are a couple of my favourite images i took of this years Humpback Whales in Tonga. If you would like to see some more just head over to my page: www.facebook.com/GrantThomasPhotos/
  9. So first off, I'm shooting with a Canon 7D MII in a Nauticam housing w/ 8' acrylic dome. Switching between a Canon 18-55mm 3.6f & Tokina 10-17mm 3.5f fisheye. I've been on a few trips now with other photographers, we are shooting in water with almost perfect visibility, ranging from 20-30m. Why is there so much dam haze in my photos? It makes the water look like there is barely 3 meters of visibility. It looks terrible, I've compared shots in the same time frame to my Gopro 6 and other photographers cameras and the difference is huge. They shoot with sony's, no extra lighting and their RAW images look amazing already, I can edit mine to look semi decent but the outcome is below average. I don't understand what's happening, I've attached some jpeg samples of unedited RAW images. Is there some setting on my camera that I'm missing, is anyone having this issue with the same model camera?
  10. FS: Ikelite Nikon D800 Housing - model 6812.8 - $750 USD Shipped within continental USA, international will have to pay lowest rate. Bought from a friend who went to sony, I ended up getting a Z7 and don't want to carry a separate set of everything. Low price reflects passing on good karma for price i got it for. Does not include domes, includes many accessories. Please let me know if you have any questions. Nick
  11. Hi everyone, This year I made a short film advocating for shark conservation, and I worked with shark conservationists Cristina Zenato in the Bahamas and Jim Abernethy in Florida to tell their personal stories, as well as my own. I showed it at Aperture Gallery in NYC in May, and as part of the official selection of the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival in NYC in October. Would love for you guys to check it out and tell me what you think! www.vimeo.com/juliabahlsen/cageless Julia
  12. I used this set-up as a beginner and moved up to a mirrorless recently. I am asking $125 + shipping (within the US only) for the whole package - tray/arm, strobe, camera with one battery & charger plus the Olympus housing. It is set-up and ready to use. The FE3010 is a 12 megapixel point-and-shoot camera with 3x zoom, several auto modes to choose from including video capability and underwater modes. The Strobe I paired with the camera is a manual Sea n Sea YS-27DX. It is very easy to operate underwater. This is my go-to camera and strobe when in a 'panic' mode.
  13. Hey guys! My name is Tom Park and i'm a Dive Master and Pro Underwater Photographer from Australia. I'm starting a UW workshop on youtube with regular uploads and tips to improve your shots underwater. My first tutorial video is up with my top 5 tips and tricks to improve your UW photos. I hope you all enjoy and learn something from this I have plenty of other UW content you may also be interested in Anyways happy shooting! Tom
  14. Hi all, I'm looking forward to trying out my new rig, but would love to go on a boat which is catered for photographers. Doesn't have to be overly serious, but someone who's able to position the boat in a decent manner to make it easier to try and get head on shots, or have a boat with fresh water etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as at the moment we have the following ear marked, "On Isla Mujeres", due to the bigger boat and less of a propensity for sea sickness (yes, even the hardiest of sea scurveys get sick on these boats). Thanks!

  16. Hey everyone! Like many, I was bitten by the dive bug and being an avid photographer, purchased an underwater camera housing system in 2014 thinking I would dive ten times a year and take a whole heap of awesome photos/video. Alas, real life has a way of bringing you back to reality and finances have dictated that the gear must go to free up funds, having been used on one dive in Canada. I currently live in Ireland but was home recently to take photos (photo files are too big so please contact me via email to see the photos!) of the gear and if there is interest, I will be back in Canada in july for a wedding and could arrange a paypal transaction and ship the gear then. I bought the gear for approx $7200.00 CAD + tax and am looking to sell it for $6500.00 CAD. It is all packed and ready to ship too! This is an unreal deal tbh as some of the gear has never been used and everything else has literally seen water once and not even salt water, for that matter. Unfortunately, given my current location, I cannot take further photos but would be happy to answer any questions you might have to the best of my ability. Thanks and hope I can find the gear a good home with someone who will put it to good use! Cheers, Adam

  19. Ikelite Pro-2800 Underwater Video Light System. Item is used but in excellent condition. The bottom nylon pouch is a little scratched up from the sea bottom but can be replaced for under $30US if you want tidy...this one works fine. Powerful 2800 Lumen Beam 100%, 75%, 50%, 25% Power Settings Emergency SOS Mode Flashes the Light Perfectly Diffused 100 Degree Beam Includes what you see in the pictures. Two options for mount - ball mount or flexarm. Ikelite cable to NIMH Battery, pouch to connect to bottom of standard sized Ikelite DSLR case - see Ikelite to confirm compatibility. Of course this can be used separately from the camera if desired - very powerful and reliable light. Other than the cable connects, it is a closed system.

  20. I'm selling my Ikelite 8" modular dome + 2.75" lens extension (Ikelite product numbers 5510.45 and 5510.11). Used only a few times (literally, 3 or 4). Bought it without checking if my Nikkor 14-24mm would fit, which it doesn't, and after borrowing a 15mm prime from a friend I actually figured out that I don't like wide angle photography underwater so much. In mint condition. Comes with protective hood. Manufacturer's image of said product: http://www.ikelite.com/images/products/accessories/5511.1/5511.1-dome-kit-a.jpg I'm thinking in a price range of P20,000 or EUR400 (RRP for this set is US$550 / EUR525). I'm on Camiguin, Philipppines. Shipping costs for the buyer, within the Philippines it will be shipped insured via LBC. Price depending on destination. Since regular postal services are not very reliable here, and other services virtually unaffordable, I don't want/dare to ship this outside the Philippines. Payment via COD (in Philippines) or IBAN/SEPA transfer to my European account. Drop me a message if interested.
  21. Hi, I'm thinking about enrolling myself into my first underwater photo workshop (instructor well known pro underwater photographer). I would consider myself intermediate level underwater photographer but quite knowledgable about above water photography but not professional. I would like to take my underwater photography to the next level of creativity. How useful have non-beginner people found these workshops? Worth the money? Have you've discovered things you wouldn't have thought of by just reading books/forums? Thanks for your opinions.

The certificate is fully transferable and may be applied to any Aquatica housing system. It is also valid for a $3,000 rebate on a new Amphibico Genesis FS700 housing or a $4,000 rebate on a new Amphibico Rouge housing. Feel free to contact Aquatica for verification.

  24. Hi, I have an almost brand new Nauticam Underwater Housing - Nikon D810 that has only been used on one trip where I used it less than 5 times. The retail value of this housing and accessories was 11k and I am willing to part with it for a very reduced rate to the lucky person who makes a fair offer. Happy to Skype and/or show videos of the air seal working. No damage or leaking occurred. I am only selling this because I am using a different body now. Please send serious inquiries to: neo@neileverosborne.com Neil
  25. I am looking to organize a special trip to swim and photograph some of the most majestic creatures on the planet, the humpback whale. I am looking to go in 2017 during the peak of the humpback migration where thousands of Southern Hemisphere Humpbacks migrate from Antarctica to the warmer waters of Tonga. The sheltered bays and inlets around Tonga provide the perfect nursery for mothers to teach their calves all about being a whale! Ive personally observed many humpbacks around Oahu and off the coast of Maui and Im completely blown away by their size! Its a magical experience to be in their presence. Tonga is one of the few places in the World that allows people to legally get in the water with these gentle giants. Swimming with humpbacks is a privilege and we must not forget that heavy regulations and laws have allowed people this amazing opportunity. We must respect the laws and obey them. Spaces will be very limited, and only a small group will be allowed in order to maximize everyones water time. Who would like to join me on this once in a life time adventure? For dates and prices please email me (photographybyleighton@yahoo.com) or message if you are interested! Spots are very limited! Once in a life time opportunity!
