Digital Underwater Photography. PADI DUP Instructor Course. For MSDT; Master SCUBA Diver, snorkelers, Level One,Two.

Digital Underwater Photography Dive 1 may NOT be.

  • Used on its own with its KR as an Adventure Dive.
  • Used with any other two Dives for the Adventure Diver cert.
  • Used with Deep, Nav and any other two for Advanced Open Water.


The Photo Dive in the Adventures in Diving book is NOT Digital Underwater Photography.  It has f-stops and apertures, etc. and is for old-school film cameras.  Digital Underwater Photography dives may only be taught by DUP Specialty Instructors.  It is just Dive 2 and that KR that is to be used in these ways.  You can now see that for a non-DUP Instructor to use DUP Dive 1 is then a clear breach of standards!  DUP is for both snorkelers and divers at Level One or Two.  Divers need to have at least Junior Open Water or the same from other agencies.  If you can get the book in a tongue your student speaks, you must make sure that they have their own new one, plus the White Balance Slate.

Each two months, on the paradise Island of Malapascua, off Cebu, in the Philippines, award-winning PADI DSAT TecRec Course Director Dan Robinson runs.

  • IDC.
  • MSDT.
  • Speciality Instructor Training Courses (at PHP 7,000 each in the year 2012).
  • Technical diving courses from Tec Basics right up through full Trimix Instructor and Tec Advanced Wreck Instructor.
  • ANDI Cave Course.


I can build a bespoke package for you, say.

  • DUP.
  • Underwater Photographer
  • Underwater Videographer.
  • Whale Shark Awareness.
  • Sea Turtle Awareness.


Programmes are also available on Koh Tao in Thailand, where MSDT Prep will cost you THB 20,000 and each Specialty Instructor Course will cost you THB 4,000.  I am also happy to travel to you, wherever in the World you are, particularly to the UK or to Australia.

For each Speciality, you will pay to PADI a one-off app. fee of AUD 77 in the year 2013 if you did the course with me and you can do this course as a Divemaster.  In PH PADI will process five standard specs. for the price of four this year.  On Koh Tao, if you send in five at the same time from a course with me, they will do your MSDT free of charge.  Specs. will cost you more if you do not do a course with me and then you must have 25 student certs. first too.
