I came to Koh Tao with extensive land photography experience and and wanted to fulfill my dream of learning underwater photography. I contacted Alex and expressed what I wanted to learn and he went above and beyond what was expected. I previously interviewed every other "photography school" on the island and knew from the first meeting that this was by far the best option. Alex answered every question I had and I felt that he truly wanted me to gain the most form my course. I am a grateful for his help and know without a doubt that I made the right decision. Don't look any further Alex WILL make you a competent UW photographer and really cares about your development.
