"Personal Underwater Photographic Tuition with Martin Edge"

Martin Edge offers 1:1 tuition with programmes tailored to meet an individual's needs and budget. Martin adopts a modular approach enabling photographers to select areas of specific interest and for those who want to combine teaching with practice he offers an accompanied underwater photography session in a swimming pool.

The modules are outlined below. It is not necessary to select the teach-in modules ahead of time. Many find it helpful to determine the areas of focus after the introductory photo clinic. A typical full day programme consists of the introductory photo clinic/critique, agreed topics/teach-ins and a swimming pool session with review and basic Photoshop skills if necessary.

Photo Clinic

Is a 1 - 11/2 hour session during which Martin reviews and critiques your own photographs to determine style, trends and specific areas for improvement. This session always provides direction for which teach-in sessions to select.


"Each teach-in runs for 45-60 minutes. During a one day programme a variety of these topics can be accommodated. They are numerous but often include:

  • The Basics - Apertures and Shutter speeds etc
  • Getting the best from you compact digital underwater camera
  • Nikon D7000 Nauticam housings 'Try before you buy'
  • Moving on to SLR cameras. Which one is right for me?
  • 'Mindset' planning an underwater photo dive
  • Digital issues - Raw v Jpeg, White balance etc.
  • Close-up and Macro
  • Wide angle and natural light
  • Flash lighting including histograms and positioning
  • Composition
  • Basic digital editing with Adobe Photoshop CS and Lightroom 3 & 4
  • The Future - Other equipment options to suit the individual.
  • Getting your work published
If there is something that is not on the list and you would like to cover then this can always be included providing I know ahead of time."

Practical Pool Session

This provides the opportunity to put all the teaching and tips into practise in an accompanied photographic session with Martin. The results are reviewed and critiqued.


When booking a programme Martin will need to know what photographic equipment you use and you will need to bring all your photographic equipment with you. For those who have yet to take the 'plunge' digital camera hire is available free of charge.
