Mike’s Dive Cameras is happy to announce co-operation with UK’s leading dive travel agent; Scuba Travel. Aside from regular diving holidays, Scuba Travel also arranges specialised underwater photography itineraries for photographers with varying experience levels. These trips cost the same as a normal trip, but an extra you will have is a photography specialist on board during your stay. Day-to-day dive sites and locations are also selected with photography in mind. These trips are the perfect way to hone your UW photo skills with like-minded people.
Mike’s Dive Cameras especially recommends trips with Mario Vitalini and Martyn Guess. To see their up and coming trips, visit our website photo trips section. Jussi will also be joining Mario’s July liveaboard trip to the Red Sea as an equipment specialist so you will be getting two camera geeks on board at no extra cost. There will also be some new and interesting underwater photography products to test. Places are still available!
