Underwater Photography Workshop - Little Cayman Beach Resort - March 2-9 & 9-16, 2024
Improve your underwater photography skills with the Backscatter photo pros at the Little Cayman Beach Resort.

With its healthy reefs and incredible diversity of marine life, Little Cayman has some of the best underwater photo opportunities in the Caribbean. Friendly groupers, turtles, and stingrays are favorite subjects for wide angle shooters. Macro shooters will find tons of blennies, gobies, nudibranchs, and crabs. Crystal-clear water with little to no current makes Little Cayman a perfect place to work on your underwater photography skills.

Then this is the course for you.
