Maria Munn, Ocean Visions, gives a report on her last underwater photo workshops held in Nuweiba and showcases some of her students' work...
"The two week photo workshops in Nuweiba gave even more spectacular results than last years. This time the groups explored the outside sites of Pipelines and Sinkers, which provided some stunning photographic opportunities with the gorgeous pink soft coral overhangs that these sites are so famous for. My wish for a frogfish worked and a gorgeous large one arrived on Day One on the House Reef and by the end of the first week was sitting right on top of the pinnacle, posing for everyone!
As ever, the house reef was teaming with life and everyone during the two weeks couldn't believe how many different subjects they saw including Pgymy Pipe Horses at just three metres in the sea grass. A huge well done to everyone who took part with a special well done to Ambrose Stickney for completing his Deep Dive and passing his Advanced Course and to Alex Cook for passing his Advanced too and seeing a huge green turtle on his Underwater Photography Dive with Noeleen.
These sites are absolutely perfect for learning about different underwater photography techniques using natural light, wide angle and macro techniques as well as video. All future courses will come with an accompanied CD to help course guests get an idea of the wonderful underwater scenery that awaits them."
The next course with Maria is 6 - 13 October at Emperor Nuweiba.
