William Tan General Underwater Photography Skills Course

Imagine learning to shoot from award-winning underwater photographer William Tan in the equatorial waters of Gorontalo, Indonesia’s hidden paradise! Classroom sessions will include understanding equipment limitations, shooting skills, underwater etiquette, composition and wide angle challenges. Participants will dive in rotating pairs with William on one day; on other days William will be available on board after diving for advice and trading stories. Evening sessions with him will focus on shooting problems with review of photos taken that day. The five-day course will run 6 to 11 November and include five nights with full board at Gorontalo Oasis Hotel, 11 dives with Miguel’s Diving and airport transfers in Gorontalo for USD565 per person twin/double share.

Gorontalo itself provides an incredible variety of marine environments for photographers to hone their skills. Pristine coral walls, multiple pinnacles, caverns, muck, current swept submerged points and wrecks are all available within a short travel time. In addition to new and endemic species, the likes of boxer crabs and anemonefish eggs are usually available for macro photographers. Gorontalo’s unique and gigantic Salvador Dali sponges with their surreal surfaces are trophies for the wide-angle enthusiast.
