Philippines Photography Trip

Hosted by Saeed Rashid - Focus Visuals

28 June 2018 departure

Here at The Scuba Place, we are beyond excited about our new partnership with one of our industry’s true characters, Saeed Rashid. Well known in the underwater photography world, Saeed will be hosting our first photography trip to the Philippines in June 2018 at Magic Oceans Dive Resort in Anda, Bohol. In the beautiful waters of the Philippines, both the novice and the seasoned photographer are sure to learn something new from Saeed.

Learning by Doing is our philosophy, and the best way to build your skills is to learn a technique, put it into practice, get feedback and support and move on to the next step. Saeed will not only help you to develop your skills to spot and frame your subject to its full potential underwater, but also show you how to polish your images using a variety of simple post- production techniques when back ashore. His workshops are in such high demand due not only to his genius in underwater photography, but his real expertise in deliver the ‘Doing’.

A lecturer at Bournemouth University, popular speaker at UK dive shows, Editorial Consultant for Diver Magazine and member of BSoUP, Saeed is well placed will guide you through the underwater photography process from start to finish.

Our Philippines Photo Trip is full of options! Choose a 7, 10 or 14 night itinerary and you'll have 3 to 4 boat dives daily along with unlimited house reef diving. Saeed will provide informal coaching sessions along with feedback and support throughout your stay.

Your home away from home will be the Magic Oceans Dive Resort. You'll stay in a deluxe chalet on full board basis. This amazing 4 star resort has only 16 bungalows surrounded by flower gardens and just steps away from the beach. The bungalow balconies are big and cosy with bamboo seats and a towel rack and offer amazing views of sea and land.

The super-size dive centre can comfortably accommodate up to 35 divers, and every diver has their own spot for the whole holiday. Plenty of hanging space to dry your gear and a box for smaller items is provided. The floor of the dive centre is made of pebbles so it’s not at all slippery. In the wet area there are 3 showers and 5 big sinks to rinse all your gear and cameras. For photographers there are five large camera tables with electricity, good light and airguns.
