new website - the Underwater Photography Guide

Recommended Posts

I'm excited to announce my website, www.uwphotographyguide.com, has officially "launched" after quietly going online early last year. Here is the press release.

 

As many of you know, 11 months ago I put the Underwater Photography guide online, as a big labor of love, and I've been adding content ever since, with the help of many others, including several other Wetpixel members. Since then I have also added equipment reviews, marine life articles and dive destination guides.

 

Thanks for all the support people have given me, and I hope the guide can help divers make the transition into underwater photography a little easier.

 

Mods, thanks for giving me permission to post here.

 

Scott

UWPhotographyGuide.com Launches the World’s First Free Comprehensive Online Guide to Underwater Photography for Divers and Photographers

 

Underwater photography is a growing activity enjoyed by tens of thousands of scuba divers each year. UWPhotographyGuide.com is a comprehensive resource on underwater photography theory, technique, equipment, travel destinations and marine life for beginners and experienced photographers.

 

Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2010 -- Underwater photography is the most challenging type of photography one can undertake. It is also one of the fastest growing segments, due to the rapid drop in the price of underwater camera housings over the last 10 years. UWPhotographyGuide.com is proud to be the first free comprehensive online guide to underwater photography to assist divers and photographers in learning this difficult art.

 

The website UWPhotographyGuide.com has been in beta for several months already, with articles on theory, technique and equipment being added every week. Many award-winning amateur and professional underwater photographers worldwide have contributed to the Underwater Photography Guide. Reaction to this resource by industry professionals has been overwhelmingly positive.

 

Well-known professional underwater photographer Alex Mustard says "The Underwater Photography Guide is an excellent and free resource that every underwater photographer who wants to improve their photos should bookmark".

 

Bonnie Pelnar, of www.TheUnderwaterPhotographer.com says "The Underwater Photography Guide is a valuable resource for beginners as well as accomplished shooters. I recommend it to all my workshop students. It's the perfect combination of technical "how-to" that's easy to understand, creative ideas and research and testing that backs it all up. I love the unbiased articles and straight-forward delivery. Nice job!"

 

Uwe Schmolke, a German Photographer who recently won best of show in the prestigious Los Angeles Underwater Photographic Society International Competition, says “the Underwater Photography Guide is a very hands-on guide to Underwater Photography which enables both beginners and passionate amateurs to improve their capabilities in making underwater photos an unforgettable experience. In addition to many links to equipment providers, it provides easy access to a lot of desired information.”

 

Owner and Editor of UWPhotographyGuide.com Scott Gietler says “Underwater photography can be very daunting the first time it is attempted. After 1,000 dives with a camera, I am still learning. My passion is not just photography, but sharing with others how to get more out of it. And at the end of the day, if more people are taking photos that they want to share, it’s going to also drive interest in scuba diving and preserving our world’s oceans.”

 

In addition to photography theory and technique, the Underwater Photography Guide also has articles on the natural history and behavior of marine life, and unbiased, informative articles about dive destinations around the world that offer underwater photography opportunities.

Congratulations Scott! Must have been a ton of work to get it all up and running. I just went over to take a look at the latest incarnation, thought I'd spend a couple of minutes and ended up reading all about Bali for an hour or more. It really looks great with a bunch of wonderful info added.

 

Super site partner,

Steve
