"I attended Emma's underwater photography workshop and it was amazing. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to get into this to do her course before buying anything. Emma's knowledge on equipment is awesome and her instructions on how to improve my photos were informative and easy to follow. On top of all that Emma is just a really nice person and I thoroughly enjoyed discussing our passion of diving with her. "

Her commitment to sharing her knowledge and experience in a clear and concise manner was invaluable in ensuring the safety of my equipment and myself whilst diving.
