FULL. Alex Mustard classic summer Red Sea Workshop has a must-do status amongst many underwater photographers. It is a week of intensive underwater photography in the Red Sea taking in world class ship wrecks, vibrant Red Sea reefs and timed to catch gatherings of great schools of fish in the Ras Mohammed Marine Park, all with expert tutorage and photo insight from Alex.

Alex says “I run this trip every year not only because it is a great location for teaching underwater photography, but because the diving is so good, so diverse that even when you go as often as me you are still itching to get in and shoot it all.” You can read a detailed overview of Alex’s Red Sea Workshops here.

The 2018 edition of the workshop will be once again on the fabulous MY Whirlwind, the perfect liveaboard for a productive photographic safari. Note that this year there is only one week available in June/July (and a second workshop in September). The plan for my Red Sea workshops is broadly the same each time, but it always varies with conditions and how the sites are performing photographically – the classic combination is wrecks, reefs and schools. The teaching on the workshop is focused on how to produce excellent images of the subjects that we are shooting.
