Emperor Elite


Join Duxy and Emperor for 2018 Red Sea trips

| No TrackBacks

Duxy Profile Pic High Res-6260164.jpeg

Emperor Divers has teamed up with Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield for 2018 to bring you some relaxing trips suited to divers who like flexibility and, of course, photographers and videographers.

Duxy has been at the forefront of underwater photography and travel for many years and brings with him a light-hearted take on the diving world and how it has changed the way we now take underwater photographs and video.

A regular speaker at dive shows and dive clubs, Duxy loves nothing more than to share his knowledge and enviable experience with divers of all abilities.

“Getting beginners started on the route to rewarding pictures and sharing advice with anyone who wants to learn is such a great feeling,” says Duxy.

He now combines his time helping people to choose and use cameras, housings, strobes and lenses, escorting trips and running workshops around the world.

His own pictures have illustrated blogs and advertising campaigns and he is currently contributing to Scuba Diver magazine with a regular monthly column.

With more than 40 escorted trips under his belt to the Red Sea and further afield, Duxy continues to develop new ways to pass on knowledge and share his love of diving and underwater photography to divers.

We have two trips planned on two of our magnificent Red Sea liveaboards with at least three ‘open deck’ days a week. Open deck diving means you are free to dive with your buddy between 6am to 6pm at times that suit you. Flexibility is the key so you can capture that killer shot or simply enjoy a lie in! On both itineraries there will be three guided ‘excursion dives’, even when open deck is in place, from either the two Emperor guides and/or with Duxy himself. Photo, video, processing and production advice will be delivered by Duxy.

Sample itineraries - if the weather plays ball – are below.
