Practical lessons


And these are the expeditions you’ll make during the Underwater Photography Boot Camp. Without a doubt you’ll finish it as a great photographer with captures of out-of-this-world landscapes.

To begin with this course the best way, we’ll visit the Underwater Museum of Art, or MUSA. This place has a mysterious atmosphere with its hundreds of life-sized statues. It was created to act as an artificial reef. Which is why you’ll see plenty of fish and even turtles swimming around.

After MUSA, you’ll meet Cancun’s colorful reefs which are famous for their abundant marine life. You’ll put to test your new knowledge and will surely leave the location full of excellent underwater shots.

Cozumel is the ultimate diving location and when you see its gorgeous reefs you’ll get why. We’ll take you 85 feet deep and you’ll dive by one of the most impressive reef walls in the world.

Near the costs of Cancun, there’s an excellent location to apply the lesson you learned in the Underwater Photography Course: General Anaya. This sunken ship was cut in two by the hurricane Wilma back in 2005.

In Punta Nizuc there’s the clearest water in Cancun – that makes it the perfect location to capture the sunset. This time instead of diving, we’ll snorkel because we want to stay near the surface.

Inside the Yucatan Peninsula’s Cenotes you’ll find endless opportunities to take unique captures. These places will probably take your breath away because they are like entrances to another planet.

Capturing the majesty of the world’s biggest fish is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Consider this last practical lesson kind of like a final test and the beginning of an intense passion for underwater photography.
