Underwater Photographer or Digital Underwater Photographer



Underwater photography is one of the most popular diving specialties, and the rise of digital underwater photography has made it easier and more fun than ever – that is why there are actually two PADI Underwater Photography courses.

The Digital Underwater Photographer course gets you going quickly with today’s modern digital equipment, whether you use a point-and-shoot snap camera or a sophisticated D-SLR like the pros.

The Underwater Photographer course is a more traditional photography course designed for conventional film equipment.



Because underwater photography is also popular with snorkelers, there is an option for avid snorkelers and skin divers to complete the course – Underwater Photographer – Level 1 is a pool diving only certification.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!!!  Are you medically able to dive?

The purpose of the PADI Medical Statement is to find out if you should be examined by your doctor before participating in recreational diver training.

Please answer the questions contained in the PADI Medical Statement on your past or present medical history with a ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ – ‘Y’ and ‘N’ are NOT acceptable answers.  If you are not sure, answer ‘YES’.

If any of these items apply to you, you MUST have the Medical Statement signed by a physician prior to participating in scuba diving.
