Underwater Photography Tutorials
To Improve Your Underwater Photography and Videos

One of the key ingredients of The Underwater Tribe is our passion for teaching underwater photography. We teach photography on location to eager students looking to improve their skills. However, we also like to spread knowledge to others around the world.  In the Underwater Photography Tutorials section, we present an ongoing series of written and video based tutorials designed to help everyone improve their skills in underwater imaging.  Each of the links below leads to a written or video tutorial.  We are updating the tutorials constantly with new material and technology.  We also host videos on our YouTube Channel, feel free to subscribe and “like” the videos.

Many folks learn easier by “doing” rather than by watching.  If you are a hands on learner then please have a look at our Photo Workshops page.  We offer One to One photography tuition in Bali as well as on location group workshops.  Destinations for our workshops typically include the Lembeh Strait and Ambon in Indonesia.  A workshop is a great way to enhance the information learned from reading the tutorials and applying it in real life.
