For the duration of the course, the diving experience was so relaxed & comfortable.. we were on the best (&biggest!) boat on KohTao, so no dragging of gear&tanks back&forth (yayyy!) The dives were fantastic, helping me to get a greater eye for detail, better diving techniques & soaking up all of Alexs incredible knowledge of the local ecology. Which led to longer dives&better photos! My favourite aspect of the course was Alex was really good at explaining the generic photography in such layman terms (theres only so much you can learn from books!) &Then having the opportunity & gratitude of trying&succeeding these new photography lessons.. UNDERWATER! :D Truly a fantastic course & an incredible teacher!!
