Weedy Seadragon Photography Workshop

Join us for 5 days photographing Weedy seadragons, a strange and beautiful cousin of the seahorse!  Weedy seadragons are unique to temperate Australia and found nowhere else in the world.

No matter what level of photography or videography experience you have, Scott Portelli will be on hand daily to help you get the most out of your trip.  There will be time each evening to review and edit your images to optimise your photography and improve your approach.

This will be a small group expedition, maximum 4 people, suitable for certified SCUBA divers with temperate water experience.
