Participants of the workshop will enjoy twice daily photography and videography presentations, one-on-one time and critiques with the Pros, marine life presentations and of course some epic Lembeh Strait diving accompanied by the Pros themselves for practical sessions underwater. With a strong team of Pros, we are looking forward to seeing some incredible imagery as the week progresses.

We have a formidable team of award winning underwater image makers. Alex Tattersall is the founder of Underwater Visions, Martin Edge is the author of “The Underwater Photographer”, and Ethan Daniels has authored several books including “Under Cape Cod Waters”, “Coral Triangle Seascapes” and “Marine Life and Natural History of the Coral Triangle”.

Capturing Critters in Lembeh is open to all levels of photographers regardless of shooting experience and camera system. Last year’s event produced a stunning array of high quality images from all participants, who also showed phenomenal individual development over the course of the week. Some of our Pro workshop presentation highlights include underwater photography composition and subject selection, basic lighting and backscatter reduction, using snoots, video lights and LEDs, backlighting, inward lighting and other creative effects, macro essentials, equipment and accessories, photo and video editing, and advanced editing in Adobe Lightroom as well as other tips and techniques to produce quality images.

Lembeh Resort’s in-house Marine Biologists Dimpy Jacobs and Agus Peloa will be hosting evening marine life presentations focused on how to best capture striking images of critters according to their natural behaviors.

Lembeh Strait’s world-class muck diving sites make Lembeh a premier destination for underwater photographers and videographers. With an unrivaled abundance of some of the world’s most unusual and rare macro marine life there will be no shortage of subject choices.
