The PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course is ideal for anyone interested in underwater photography, weather you'll always have a camera in your hand or would like to keep one in your BCD for that once in a lifetime encounter.  This is one of PADI's most popular specialties and it's easy to see why! The Digital Underwater Photographer course gets you taking great shots quickly, regardless of weather you use a compact camera or a dslr in a housing!

We run this course locally, diving at Leigh coast where you'll find some of the best shore diving spots in NZ. Or you can complete the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course on any of our charter weekends - weather you want to explore the photographic potential of the HMNZS Canterbury wreck on a Bay of Islands trip or start shooting one of the many spectacular dive sites at The Poor Knights.

All required PADI materials are included and for you to keep. The PADI certification fee is also included.

The PADI Digital Underwater Photo course consists of two main sections:

  • Theory - Over one weekday evening you will complete the theory section at our Takapuna store. There is some homework for you to complete before these sessions, so make sure you collect your books / register your digital learning code with plenty of time! 
  • Diving -  On the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course you'll head out with your Instructor and put those photography theory skills to good use in the water! We can dive locally from the shore, head up to the Poor Knights for a day trip or even complete this course on one of our awesome Bay of Islands weekend trips!
 

Why lean with Performance Diver?

 
This is a very important question! There are many dive schools out there, so why would you choose ours?
 
  • We have nice small class sizes to prioritise your learning, with a maximum of 4 students on PADI Digital Underwater Photo courses! This means that you get more personalised instructor time. 
  • We're always going diving! Once you're qualified, we have heaps of shore dives, day trips, weekend adventures and more at every level of qualification! Every weekend throughout the season there are trips planned, so you're never short of options. Our social nights are a great way to make new dive buddies and new friends.
  • ​​As a Performance Diver student you get exclusive offers and pricing on a huge range of dive gear. If you're not ready to commit to buying your own then no worries - we have heaps of rental gear at a great rate for you. We want you to go diving, so we'll make it as accessible as we can! 
  • ​Our Instructors are awesome - Here at Performance Diver we only teach PADI courses, and all of our PADI Instructors are here for one reason - they love diving! Sharing the underwater world with you is such an amazing experience and we're privileged to be able to do just that.

 
Course Prerequisites:
  • Already be at least a certified PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or equivalent.
  • Complete the Dive Medical form. Click here to print the PADI Medical Form for diving. If you answer yes to any of the medical questions you must complete a Dive Medical check with your Doctor and obtain written medical clearance before the start of the course as we can't allow you in the water without it.
  • Students must be at least 15 years of age. Parental consent is required for students aged 15 - 17 years of age.
  • As well as basic dive equipment (which can be rented) you are required to have a safety sausage, compass and knife.
  • You will have homework to compete before the course starts. The course is heaps of fun, but is also intense - we have a lot to learn in our sessions, and they run to a very strict timetable. Failure to complete your homework means that you are behind right from the start, and are holding your group back. This is, understandably, not fair on everyone else and is likely to result in you being removed from the course without refund!
