Hello, I'm Matty SmithUnderwater Photographer
I lead underwater photography workshops and build custom equipment for
underwater photographers to help them stand out
and take memorable photos.

Learning underwater photography can feel overwhelming. Trying to figure out what you need to learn and what order to learn it in.
I understand how frustratingly slow the learning process can be when you’re trying to figure things out on your own. The endless google searches and trial and error leave you wondering if you’ll ever be able to take the photos you imagine.
In these workshops I’ll walk you through information and insights that have taken me years to learn, so you can fast track your learning and improve your photos sooner.
Brighten your space…
