I choose ‘The Dive College’, a five star PADI diving school in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote to complete my Advanced Open Water Certification in December 2016. Being cold in the UK and keen to get some sunshine, experience and observe some colourful marine life, I took the opportunity to advance my scuba skills, learn about underwater photography and complete a fish identification course.
The underwater photography course was a pivotal moment in my scuba diving journey. Behind the camera, I felt alive and full of joy. The excitement of capturing such amazing colours and sea creatures was indescribable. With the expert guidance of Bart Prinsen, co-owner of The Dive College, I found my passion for underwater photography and my scuba diving adventures really began.
