The coral reefs are the basic building block of the world’s oceans and are brimming with life and photographic opportunities. Scott Frier, Nikon’s underwater expert and photographer for over 30 years, will walk attendees through their importance and the techniques used to capture stunning images in such a unique setting.  Those attending the seminar will gain the skills to operate a camera underwater and to photograph images successfully in a challenging underwater environment.
