Underwater Photography & Videography
The underwater photography and videography club meet on the second Tuesday of every month at the Durban Undersea Club.
The purpose of the meetings is to create a forum where photographers and videographers of different experience levels meet in order to exchange information, techniques and ideas on underwater photography.
In each meeting, we have a “how to” presentation on some aspect that relates to underwater video and stills photography.
Advances in technology have meant that the traditional videographer can now take stills and a still photographer can take video. Monthly presentations has some information that relates to both the videographer and stills photographer.
You do not have to be a member of DUC to attend the meetings, however in order to take advantage of the discounts on printing of photos, camera equipment and significantly discounted dive prices, you have to be a card holding member of the Durban Undersea Club.
