MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR - RAN MOR
Ran is an ocean lover, explorer, world traveler, entrepreneur, divemaster, professional underwater photographer and a web expert, who loves to teach and share his experience with others.
Ran has been leading underwater photography expeditions around the world for the past 6 years and has recently founded the Cozumel Underwater Photography School.
Thanks to his experience at Mozaik Underwater Cameras, a leading retailer for underwater photography gear, Ran is always up to date with almost every existing camera, housing, strobe, or accessory in the market and has personally tested a lot of gear. This accumulated knowledge is invaluable when assisting other aspiring photographers and teaching them about their own gear.
Ran has always been very friendly, patient and helpful over the couple of years I've been in touch with him - from advice on equipment to purchase and troubleshooting to photography courses, his guidance has tremendously helped me along every step of my UW photography journey. All-round awesome experience!
Awesome and detailed class for underwater photography for all levels. This class definitely answered a lot of trouble and questions I was having for my underwater photography and many things clicked in my head, which makes me very excited for the next time I dive! Ran is a great teacher (and as has helped me with my underwater gear) and the material is very thorough, absolutely worth the time and money.
I was skeptical of taking an online underwater course but am extremely happy I did. Ran did a great job teaching the course and the course notes as well as the videos I will refer to for years. Ran has a wealth of knowledge and a great friendly way of delivering it online. Well worth the money and time for anybody.

What is this course all about?
For many of us, diving is not accessible on a regular basis. Whether you live in a landlocked state or simply don't have any good dive spots nearby, you probably only get to dive once or twice a year.
When you're already on your dive trip, you want to be diving as much as possible and get the best results right from the start. Otherwise, by the time you get the hang of it, it's your last day and you need to head back home...
This is why learning online is such a useful tool! Acquiring all the necessary skills beforehand ensures a much more enjoyable experience since you will be getting excellent photos from the very first day!
If you've always wanted to get into underwater photography, or if you just purchased a new camera or accessory, or if you're simply tired of getting crappy shots and not knowing what the heck you're doing, this course is for you!
We created this group workshop to offer a more affordable alternative to private courses, while still including the same great content and thorough learning experience.
