Photography is a hobby with lifelong development possibilities. Learning from senior photographers is the fastest and most efficient way to learn.
I am an award-winning photographer, photo coach, author and speaker at dive events. One of the most important skills is explaining how to progress in underwater photography.
Many of my students have now won awards for their own underwater photography.
Learn directly from me about equipment, composition, photography strategy, Lightroom & Photoshop and award strategies.
YOUR OPTIONS ARE
Caching on a group trip
Learning from YouTube tutorials
My approach to photography training is to start where you are and bring your forward from there. This is why I offer a FREE assessment session of 30mins, where we discuss your current photos and discuss where we can take it from there.
My understanding of photography is broad and I can help you whereever you are. May it be working on your approach to photography, the technicality of it all, editing or the equipment. We can also dive into more technical topics and prepare you for your first competitions.

I had 2 private sessions with Simon and they helped me a lot. He could see what I could not and sensibilise my eyes to the details. I could also learn how to fine tune my post processing. I definitely recommend his services. Now I have already won a photo contest as "Emerging Photographer"
I have taken two lessons with Simon via Zoom. He’s a natural teacher and his constructive feedback will help you bring your photography to the next level. Simon is a passionate and highly qualified instructor.
I've been trying to take photos while diving for the last few years. It's not easy and I've read quite a bit about it in books and on the web. However, after my experience with Simon I believe nothing can improve your photography more than constructive feedback from the professional underwater photographer.
Underwater photography is my passion, and one of the main reasons I dive. During our Insider Divers trips we can work on your photography skills every day. On our trips I give detailed briefings on how to approach specific environments or subjects. Even if its your first time with a camera, I guarantee great results. My coaching is above and below the waterline where I give hands-on assistance underwater.
While most trips are for photographers and non-photographers alike, some trips are fully focussed photography workshops, where we do daily training sessions on photography and digital editing, and set specific tasks to accomplish underwater.
