Renowned underwater photographer Lawson Wood will be offering some sage advice on starting out as an underwater shooter at the GO Diving Show in March.
Lawson will be on the Inspiration / Photo Stage from 2.30pm-3.15pm on Saturday 4 March, discussing beginner options, including when you should start to think about editing images.
Lawson Wood is from Eyemouth in Scotland and has been scuba diving since 1965. Now with over 16,000 dives logged in all of the world’s oceans, he is the author and co-author of over 50 books, mainly on our underwater world.
He made photographic history by becoming a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and the British Institute of Professional Photographers solely for underwater photography. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
