Photo Instruction & Workshops - Brent Durand

Underwater Photo Trips

Let's dive in person! I have led quite a few photo workshops since 2013, and my goal is always to make sure you bring home exactly what you want from the trip: whether dive or photo oriented, entry level or advanced.

Previous workshop locations have included the Bahamas, California, Indonesia, Mexico, Philippines and Sri Lanka.

Channel Islands Dive Adventures - SoCal Trips

I've partnered with CIDA to work as a photo pro on a number of their Southern California dive boat charters visiting the Channel Islands, oil rigs, local shipwrecks and other unique sites. If you like adventure and diving sites off-the-beaten path, then these trips are for you. I'll be  available to assist with any and all photography questions!

    *  No dates currently available while I settle into a new job, keep filming episodes for my Underwater Photography Video Tutorial Series, crank out other writing and assignment work, and try to get in the water myself. Please email me about a private workshop. Thanks for understanding.

Atlantis Puerto Galera Photo Workshop

Join me for world class macro and wide-angle photography in Puerto Galera! Atlantis Resorts sets the standard for diving the Philippines, and we've set up a great workshop. Free Nitrox, Verde Island day trip, and more....

Private Photo Instruction

We can schedule full day workshops and video chat sessions. Full details on my Private Photo Instruction page.

Private photo instruction is the best way to quickly gain a greater understanding not just of basic settings, but of truly learning the photography principals necessary to create great images. Schedule a brush-up session before our next trip so you hit the water ready to shoot!


"Brent was a great trip leader as well as dive guide.... he really made the trip rewarding and fun."

"His advice, critics, comments led us to such an improvement in our way to see UW photography, that everything became easier.  ...His knowledge is so deep that nothing was a problem, always a solution to offer, and a lot of dedication for the beginners we are."

"Brent has a great talent of critiquing your photos that is both helpful and fun. We will be going to this workshop again."
