We are happy to announce our 10th Annual Lembeh Photo Workshop 2023! Our 7 night/17 dive Photo Workshop will take place from 22 – 29th July 2023. Once again we are happy to welcome Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop gurus Studio Sloss as part of the instruction team. Our hosts for the event is the wonderful NAD Lembeh Resort with their amazing team. The 7 night/17 dive package includes all meals, nitrox (air available), return airport transfers (surcharge for non peak hours), 2:1 guest to guide ratio, in water tuition, and digital copies of outlines.
We limit the number of participants during workshops in order to give plenty of one to one time to everyone. One of the highlights of an Underwater Tribe workshop is that the instructors don’t take cameras underwater. Our photo instructors accompany the students underwater with a slate in hand. One to one time underwater is often touted as the highlight of the workshop by past participants. Read more about our 2022 Photo Workshop here.
Our workshops are aimed at new underwater photographers as well as more experienced photographers. We always start with the basics to get everyone on the same page before introducing other techniques. Our workshops are relaxed and friendly with a very social atmosphere. We don’t include competitions or public photo critiquing so there is no pressure on our guests. Everyone loves the one to one afternoon sessions with the instructors as this allows everyone to dig into the photos of the day.
22nd Saturday – arrival and introduction night
23 – 27 Sunday through Thursday – 2 morning dives, lectures after lunch, dive 3, open classroom and post processing, dinner or night dive
28 Friday- 2 morning dives, lunch, afternoon final prepping of images for slidesow, BBQ dinner and farewell
29 Saturday – departure
Our workshops are for everyone! Each year we have a mix of brand new photographers and people who have been shooting for years. With multiple coaches on hand, we are able to customize the learning experience for everyone. We work individually with each participant underwater in order to master new skills. The friendly and relaxed atmosphere throughout the week is full of laughter and new friends. We have many repeat guests who return year after year to join us in Lembeh.
NAD is one of the top photography resorts in the world. With incredible guides who understand photography, a large camera room, and a maximum of 2 guests per dive guide, NAD is truly a photographers resort. The food and friendly service from the restaurant are second to none. A great mix of western and local dishes are served daily with every special request attended to. NAD hosts a wonderful end of week BBQ for us on the final night of the week, always a favourite. The rooms are clean and well maintained and come in two categories, pool side or bungalow. The bungalows are larger and located behind the beach front rooms in a more private setting.

Once again we will be hosting a photo fun week ahead of the actual photo workshop. This is a chance for people to arrive early and get “warmed up” before the workshop begins. This is a great way to get used to equipment and make sure that everything is working properly. We will arrive on the 17th for the “Fun Week” but of course the dates are open for this. If you would like to arrive ahead of the workshop or stay on after the 29th then please let us know and we can arrange a longer reservation for you.
Reservation assistance available 24 hours
Underwater Tribe group trips are always led by either Mike Veitch or Luca Vaime and sometimes both of us!
