May 11 | Recorded Presentation
“Get your head back into the game, before you get back into the water.”
Presented by Marty Snyderman
Many underwater image-makers have been out of the water for extended periods during the current pandemic. Marty will help refresh your memory to prevent you from making costly mistakes and maximize your upcoming filming opportunities.
In his presentation, Marty will use some of the tips from a new eBook, 101 Tips for Underwater Photographers, as a jumping-off point to help refresh your memory to help you prevent making costly mistakes and maximize your upcoming filming opportunities. Marty produced the eBook with his partner at WiseDivers.com, Eric Riesch. 101 Tips for Underwater Photographers is their first book. Four more eBooks are already in their pipeline.
While 101 Tips for Underwater Photographers was written with still photographers in mind, there is a lot of overlap between underwater still photography and videography. Marty worked as an underwater cinematographer and film producer for two decades and will be able to offer information that applies to both audiences.
Honored with the 2018 NOGI Award in the Arts by the Underwater Academy of Arts and Sciences, an EMMY Award for cinematography, a Reaching Out Award in 2008 as a photographer presented by the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association’s (DEMA), Marty Snyderman is a widely published still photographer and author who has worked to conserve and share the magic of the undersea world for more than four decades.
Marty serves as the Marine Life Editor of Dive Training magazine and the Senior Editor of California Diving News. His still photography has been used by many major diving and wildlife publications, natural history museums, and aquaria. Representing Nikon Inc., Sea&Sea USA, and through his own courses, Marty has taught underwater photography in person and offered instruction as a magazine columnist for more than four decades. He enjoys sharing what he has learned and takes a lot of pride in his ability to teach others.
In the late 1990s, Marty produced Depth Perception, the first online course on underwater photography. Marty’s cinematography has been used by National Geographic, the PBS series Nature, BBC, Discovery Channel, Audubon, Howard Hall Productions, Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, Hardy Jones Productions, ESPN, and many other networks and entities around the world.
