Budding underwater photographers are now being offered a new course following a new partnership between RAID and Blue Duck Photography.
The underwater photography course will include advice on what to look for when considering buying an underwater camera, which accessories to use and how to photograph the flora and fauna of the sea.
Blue Duck Photography is made up of Phil and Anne Medcalf in partnership with Paul “Duxy” Duxfield. The Medcalfs will utilise experience gained from various underwater photography competitions and Duxy will draw from his 15-year underwater photography career.
James Rogers, director of RAID UK & Malta, says:
“RAID invites the best possible authors and co-authors to write and help write our training materials, whether its Jill Heinerth and Steve Lewis for our Cave courses or Paul Haynes for our Rebreather Core Knowledge manual we’re proud to have their expertise within our training platform. Paul (Duxy) and I have known and worked with each other two decades, that allows me to say, I’m excited by what this collaboration with the Blue Ducks team will bring to the industry. Their passion, knowledge and experience is the perfect fit for RAID and subsequently, all divers interested globally in starting or being better at underwater photography.”
There is an online course which will be available within the next few months, while the second chapter of the curriculum covering in-water skills and a RAID instructor’s assessment will soon follow.
