Your Outcome

Do you want to consistently create pro level photos in the water?

I am here to help you become the best water photographer that you can be and that potential is far more than what you currently think is possible. Are you keen to make it happen? Then I am here and ready to support you and provide the information to reach those goals and well beyond.

You would be surprised what is possible once you get these skills down. I am constantly amazed with the opportunities and experiences that constantly come my way thanks to my skills with a water housing. Are you ready to take your water photography to the next level?

How would it feel to be able to confidently and consistent nail any type of photo from the water? How would it feel to know you are maximising the potential of your water housing and camera every time you swim out? How would it feel to have the knowledge on hand when ever you need it to be able to tackle any task or challenge with water photography? It would feel good right?

I am committed to getting you to level and confidence where all of the above is totally possible. I have been in situations in the past where I didn't have this confidence or knowledge and its not the greatest feeling. Having the confidence and knowledge will in turn give you the belief and power to go places with photography you never thought would be possible. So are you ready to gain that clarity?

GREAT! I only want the crew that want to make the shift to becoming a better version of their current self

What Students Say

" Tom! Just subscribed to your course. What a wonderfully fantastic thing you’ve done here. I’ve only just watched a couple of lessons, but can already tell I’m really going to enjoy this! I always say as a photographer you can’t ever stop learning. The day you think you know it all is the day you should just quit.. because photography and keeping up in the industry is so much about continuously evolving. How do we evolve aside from our own trial and error.. we learn from others. And I’m sure I’m going to pick up some things from you here that will only make me a better photographer. Thank you in advance for your passion and wanting to share it. "

Dave Sanford

“I’ve been following Tom’s work for years. His images speak to me in a way very few other photographers do. They take me to a place of warm water, salty skin and summer afternoons full of light and colour. I jumped at the opportunity to learn from Tom. His course steps through all aspects of water photography in a simple and logical manner. Even with years of in-water shooting under my belt I’ve learnt so much”

Mat Brown

"I had all the gear and no idea. Photography was trickier than I thought and I couldn’t speak the language. Tom’s course helped me catch the photography bug. It gave me clarity, practical tools and a bucketload of inspiration. I’ve been on a roll ever since. The course is awesome. Tom puts his technical info into a simple, digestible format that has been easy for me to follow, understand and put into practice. And yes, I’m starting to speak the language and I’m getting more and more stoked on my images.!"
