Taba Heights is the ideal venue for underwater photography. Sunshine, calm seas and crystal clear waters are virtually guaranteed all year round. In 2010 award winning Red Sea Waterworld along with well known UK Diving Journalist and Photographer, Stuart Philpott, will be offering a number of workshops for underwater photographers. These workshops will cover all aspects of photography from macro and wide angle to maintenance and post editing. They are open to all levels of photographer from virtual beginner to semi pro. Daily sightings include Frog Fish, Lion Fish, Puffers, Morays, Anemone fish and Octopus. Dive sites are no deeper than 6 – 20 metres and there is only one dive boat per mooring. It’s basically easy and relaxed diving. Quality 5-Star, half board, accommodation rounds off the holiday quite nicely.

When and where will the courses be?
Dates for the workshops are 25th January, 26th April, 12th July and 18th October. Stuart is also offering personal one to one tuition on request and this can either be held either at Red Sea Waterworld in Taba or at the Red Sea Diving College in Sharm. There will also be one very special Liveaboard workshop week aboard VIP-1 from 27th of June. This is the perfect time of the year for wrecks, reefs and big marine life sightings. VIP-1 has just been made photographer friendly with camera dunk tanks, safe storage areas and even a dedicated computer editing suite. Spaces are very limited so try and book up early.
