Underwater Photography

Underwater photo & Marine Biology

With the world famous coral reefs of Apo Island only 30 minutes away and the coastline of Dauin offering an amazing array of macro critters, we focus a lot on underwater photography and marine biology here at Atmosphere.

The coast of Dauin is an underwater paradise for macro photographers. Our spacious camera room has individual desks for all camera setups and is equipped with air guns, towels and power outlets for 110 and 220 volts. Our dive centre and large, traditional bangka boat has dedicated freshwater camera tanks and our photo pros are on hand to help you with all aspects of photography and videography.

We also teach the PADI Digital Underwater Photography course and tailor photo workshops to your needs. GoPro rental is also available.

Local marine life at Atmosphere in the Philippines

At Atmosphere we are fortunate to have our own in-house Marine Biologist who dives with our guests. Marine life presentations are held several evenings per week giving guests an insight into the incredible critters of Dauin, the history of  Apo Island and the problems our oceans are facing with plastic pollution (among other topics!).

We are keen to get to know our local turtles, and encourage guests to submit photos of the individuals they have encountered. Our Marine Biologist will search our database to check whether we have seen an individual before, if not, you’re free to name that turtle! Our images are also submitted to a much larger database hosted by LAMAVE, a local NGO.

Want to know more? For a small fee, our Marine Biologist will dive exclusively with you and share her passion and knowledge of the marine environment.

Other experiences on offer include our very popular Kids Cove and PADI Frogfish Specialist course – not available anywhere else in the world!
