Divers hoping to sharpen their video skills with any camera system, basic or more sophisticated, will benefit from this workshop. It’s also the perfect opportunity for photographers who like to dabble in video to hone their skills and adapt their techniques.

In 2016, Michel was named a PADI Ambassador and in 2019, Julie was inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame.
Siladen’s surrounding waters are an ideal location for video imagery. They offer varied environments, each with their specific challenges. The Bunaken National Marine Park is a wide-angle heaven with its spectacular walls and diverse marine life which includes countless turtles.
Nearby shallow areas allow for macro and muck opportunities, not to mention a host of night denizens that include weird and sought after creatures. The dark is also a wonderful time to capture hunting behaviors.
The area’s warm and clear waters optimize learning, not to mention fun and action packed diving.
Siladen Resort & Spa’s dive staff is highly knowledgeable and skilled at finding your desired subject. The Dive Centre offers top-notch gear and its camera room is spacious and well-equipped for all your needs.
