S/Y Indo Siren – Raja Ampat, 26h April – 6th May 2017

Gerald will accompany guests on board to be on hand to give advice on macro, wide angle, compact and SLR photography. Recognising that each person’s camera is a different make and model the first two days of the trip are spent assisting each guest with camera set up, fine tuning the setting s and finding the best compromise for achieving optimum results.

In between dives Gerald sits with guests to review photos and discuss techniques for improvements on an individual or group basis depending on the group and camera types involved.

Gerald will accompany each individual underwater to develop technique and also show how they approach a subject and would set the camera. This allows for development at an individual pace and for him to tailor learning to individual needs. He learned by doing and watching others and feels this is the best approach to running the workshop.

Alex Mustard is also offering an underwater photography workshop in the Galapagos Islands on board the Galapagos Master in July 2016. Visit Master Liveaboards website for further information.


During the afternoon, typically after the third day dive, a presentation will be given on the following subjects:
