Alex Mustard exploring Ras Moliamed last summer. Photo by Peter Rowlands.

This is a first announcement of our intention to run an advanced digital photography workshop on a North Red Sea liveaboard in early July 2006. Alex Mustard will be leading the trip including giving a series of evening talks on the techniques of digital photography.

Peter Rowlands will also be on board bringing a variety of underwater photography equipment from UWP sponsors for everyone to try. The main aim of this trip will be to provide the best photographer orientated diving (unguided, often repeating the same sites) on the famous wrecks and spectacular reefs of the North Red Sea. The trip is timed to coincide with the large spawning schools of fish that gather at prominent sites such as Ras Mohamed.

We hope that photographers from both North American and Europe will join us and we will offer both London to London and boat only packages. If you are interested in finding out more about this special trip then please email us at [email protected]. We would also like to know if you would prefer a one or two week trip.

Linda Pitkin exhibition at the London Aquarium

The London Aquarium is hosting an exhibition of underwater photography by Linda Pitkin. This exhibition will feature a selection of her stunning images of marine animals and scenes from tropical and temperate waters around the world. Her photography features widely in many media, ranging from books, magazines, and national newspapers, to uses in advertising, and in an IMAX multi-screen presentation. In conjunction with her exhibition, which marks 25 years of her diving and underwater photography, Linda Pitkin is offering editions of her photographs for sale as Fine Art Prints. Her profits have been donated to the Tsunami Earthquake Appeal up to the beginning of April, and from then onwards will go to another environmental or humanitarian charity.

The prints are made by the Giclée method, renowned for producing works of superior quality, intensity of colour, and longevity, using fine art paper and archival pigment inks. For this, Linda is delighted to have enlisted the superb skills of Dennis Firminger.
