Scuba Diver’s underwater photography guru Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield has been a leading figure within the dive industry for the last ten years, initially as a mover and shaker within the world of underwater photography, appearing at dive industry events making the subject accessible to all within the diving community and helping move it from a niche subject into the mainstream.
He’s written articles and hundreds of blogposts on the subject, and is a well-known speaker delivering talks and presentations the length and breadth of the country. The last four years has seen him working as the Travel Photography Specialist for tour operator Scuba Travel and with them he has conducted over 30 workshops to the Red Sea and much further afield, teaching hundreds of people of all abilities how to improve their skills with a camera in the water.
Duxy says: “I’ve had a fantastic time working with a great bunch of friends at Scuba Travel and have shared many happy times with them all, however now is the time to move on and switch things up a gear.
“The guys and girls at Oonas and Ultimate are giving me a great opportunity to develop all-new escorted trips, and with their support I'm looking forward to meeting even more of you and showing you how best to get the most from your photography equipment. It makes no difference to me if you have a GoPro or much-higher-end kit, and I have developed great techniques for you to achieve your full potential.
“My itineraries are known for their relaxed and easygoing nature, fostering a sharing atmosphere for all concerned and with no pressure to perform, however, before you know it your shots and video will have got better over the course of a week or two spent with a lovely bunch of like-minded people.”
He concluded: “Even if you're a very casual snapper or just a newbie diver, the conditions I foster on a trip will mean that you’ll never feel stressed and can go at exactly the pace you’d prefer.”
