Whale Shark

The whale shark is the biggest fish and shark in the world. These gentle marine giants roam the oceans around the globe, generally alone. However, large numbers of whale sharks often gather in areas with abundant plankton food. At the end of our internships we make a tour to photograph them near Isla Mujeres island.

Rays

In season the magnificent and majestic Spotted Eagle Rays, with wing spans of up to 20', can be seen around Cozumel's marine protected park, they are one of our favorites to photograph.

Half & Half Pictures

These shots work best in shallow water, calm water. The brightness in the top half of the photo will be greater than the underwater portion. Because of this, strobes are usually used underwater to brighten up that area. Cozumel has many beach dives perfect to practice this kind of photography.

Coral Reefs

Cozumel is part of the Mesoamerican barrier reef system, the second largest coral reef system in the world. This marine park has several species that are under some degree of protection, you can find huge species like this grouper that kept posing for us for the picture.

Cow Fish

The colors disappear underwater in the same order as they appear in the color spectrum. Even water at 5ft depth will have a noticeable loss of red. For this reason, strobes are usually used to add color back to subjects. We provide you SEA&SEA strobes included on our underwater photography courses, your pictures will look as colorful as this cow fish.

Butterfly Fish

You need to be very patient when photographing subjects like this butterfly fish, spend some time with them until they trust you, then you can approach and take that shot.

Cozumel

Cozumel is a year-round dive destination known for easy drift diving with stellar visibility, vibrantly colored sponges and marine life like turtles, nurse sharks and rays, perfect to practice and learn Underwater Photography

Divers Paradise

Cozumel's island is consider a divers paradise, the protected area is home to some of the most beautiful coral reef and marine life in the world.

Sea Horse

It's amazing all the creatures you can find for underwater macro photography, sea horses are usually seen in shallow waters camouflaged with the reef.

Nurse Shark Eye

To take pictures like this macro shot of the eye of a nurse shark is necessary to first focus on your perfect buoyancy, control your breathing and avoid fast movements. We like to teach all of these skills since day one, at the end it makes a huge difference on the pictures.

Cozumel Sunset

It is easy to practice land photography as well in the island, there are many beautiful things to capture everyday, the sunsets are stunning.

The C-53

The C-53 or Felipe Xicoténcatl is a perfect Divers wreck, as the ship was scrubbed of all harmful and non biodegradable material, and large openings were cut into the decks, hull and corridors to allow divers easy access into the interiors. This is a perfect place to practice wide angle photography.
