Underwater Photography Courses for Beginners, Ocean Gifts, Print Your Photos on Canvas


A huge warm welcome to The Ocean Studio, nestled just steps away from the sea in Swanage, Dorset, where my passion is to help beginners develop their underwater photography skills and turn guests' photos into stunning canvas prints or personalised photogifts onto glass, rockslate, wood or even crystals.  It's the FIRST studio of it's kind in the UK and I just love helping guests, so please bear with me whilst I update this site.

Whether you are a complete beginner, or just looking to develop your creative skills with your compact camera underwater, there is a course for you.  Choose from Two Hour or Four Hour Courses, Full Day or even a Group Course for your Dive Club to help you sign off photography specialities.

The Studio is newly designed with an ocean theme to inspire that everyone can take incredible images with their phones, compact cameras, mirrorless or d-SLRs and create their own beautiful gifts whilst they go for a cup of tea, have a spot of lunch or even go diving.

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to welcoming you to this little ocean paradise nestled in Dorset very soon.
