What you'll do

You are literally going to get "WET"! This workshop gives you a hands on, experience in "Aquatography". In the workshop you will learn about equipment, cameras, technique, processing, ocean safety and much more. Suitable for all levels.

Photographs are more than just snapshots. When taken the right way they become dramatic, personal statements with the power to last forever. There is something truly captivating about images of the ocean and this workshop covers the theory enabling you to understand how to take a great shot as well as the practical element allowing you to capture a stunning shot.

This is a truly immersive and interactive workshop! Your day will start with the theory - explanations, visuals & documentation. Then on to the practical side with an "Aquatography" session. We'll provide wetsuits, and all the equipment you will need for this hands on session.

After our water-based session, you'll have some free time to discover some of the local area and enjoy lunch before heading back. We will have a slide show of your work ready for you and you'll be able to choose your favourite image to process and turn into an A4 framed print to take home.

With over thirty years of experience in water-based activities (professional stand up paddle boarding, surfing, sailing, water photography) I have taken my passion for the ocean and water activities and turned it into a business. As a family, we fell in love with Chiba, Japan, and all it has to offer so set up a professional Surf Camp/B&B enabling us to live the dream and indulge my passion for all that the ocean offers every day!. Seeing our customers faces every time they are in the ocean never gets old.

A truly unique and amazing experience, me and my group of friends who took Dane's Aquatography workshop today love our photography & when we saw there was a chance to do it in the ocean we signed up straight away.  Dane's communication was great right from the start sending us lots of information about the best way to get to him & what to bring along. The workshop itself was informative & interesting Dane & his team then did an amazing job of making us feel calm and safe before we entered the ocean to shoot what can only be described as mother natures true beauty, shooting in the ocean is amazing & after seeing the images Dane himself has captured when the surf is huge we all know there is still so much to learn.  After lunch, we got to see our images on the big screen before choosing our favorite to print & take home.  Dane's wonderful Japanese wife Madoka was so kind making us amazing hot drinks after the cold ocean & the location of their Guest House quite simply put is STUNNING.  We loved it so much me & my friend's can't wait to come again in the summer.  Thanks, Dane & Madoka for an amazing Day.
