I found Alex and Dive4Photos by coincidence while I was doing my PADI Instructor Exam at Crystal Dive Resort.
Before coming to Koh Tao I had bought at ton of gear and my plan was to learn by myself how to use it all. But when I saw the poster for Dive4Photos and the PADI Dive Centre Pro Photographer Course I knew that was the perfect course for me. I told Alex I had a lot of gear and no idea how to even put it together. Alex showed me how to use it all from Macro, Super Macro, Wide Angel, Strobe, No strobes and even Magic Filters. At the end of the course we were supposed to photograph other divers. We had a great session with two divemaster interns, it was a ton of fun
If you own a camera and underwater housing, Alex is definitely the guy you would want to teach you how to take better underwater photos :D If you don’t own a camera and are unsure if you want to buy some gear or not you should still take the course as Alex will teach you the basics of the gear (you can rent or borrow gear from Alex) and from that knowledge you can decide for yourself later if you want to buy something or not. If you want Alex could even help order the different pieces for you. My wife Wania and ended up buying a underwater housing, macro and wide angles lenses for her camera during the course :)
