In this workshop, work with Jill Heinerth, celebrated underwater photographer and veteran explorer, to enhance your underwater photography skills in a small-group setting. In each of three sessions, Jill will offer a dynamic multimedia presentation followed by an intimate opportunity to discuss your questions, critique common challenges, and edit the work of interested participants.


Jill will share her best practices for safety and success with advice on editing your work, building a portfolio, and even finding potential clients or opportunities to share your work. Throughout the workshop sessions, you will have ample opportunities to raise questions and get personal feedback on your work from Jill.


In the final session, Jill will also cover the essentials of underwater videography, offering a short primer on the basic principles of shooting good video content.
