Although we have been known for our underwater video for the last decade it is just recently that we have been asked and agreed to share our knowledge and experience on shooting and editing techniques in a workshop format. We do workshops for New York's Beneath the Seas , Chicago's Our World Underwater, Boston Sea Rovers


Below is a description of a typical workshop like the one we did at Beneath the Seas in New York.  There we had a great workshop with a good group of divers and have had several positive feedbacks.   If you are interested in having us hold a workshop as a moneymaking event at your dive show or shop please email us at
