Private Travel Photography Workshop


$750/$950 per day

Flights, hotel, car rental, other travel and dive related expenses not included and will be added



Coming to Hawaii, or planning a live-aboard or land-based trip to Fiji, Palau, or beyond and want to make the most of your trip. I will pack my gear and see you there.  Includes private photography instruction, being your dive buddy,  and video highlights of the experience. 

I have over 12,000 hours of bottom time and have worked as a divemaster, photo pro, and group leader on liveaboards and land-based resorts in Indonesia, Palau, Yap, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, and Hawaii. Throughout our time together I will share my knowledge of photography and capture the highlights with pictures or video to provide lifelong memories. My experience underwater will pay off as I see things and understand how the underwater world works.


Testimonials From Previous Clients

Having taken a variety of photography tours/classes, Douglas distinguished himself right away. Through conversation and a few questions, he learned that we knew enough to take our lens caps off before we shot. So instead of a canned lesson plan, we got exactly what we wanted. Which was a focus on the artistic side of photography.

What a great experience. Not only did I learn a lot about how to take great pictures Doug also took me to places I wouldn’t have seen. Can’t wait to put my new skills to good use.


I knew that my trip to Maui was going to epic but what I did not know was that my time spent with Douglas would turn this total newbie into an artist in just one day. Douglas was able to transform my abilities and skill level with a camera from just your average snapshooter into an actual photographer in just one workshop.

Doug’s techniques are so personalized to the lighting scenario. He stimulated my mind to re-think how I approach photography which I will put into practice!
