Liz will be conducting evening seminars on improving your underwater photos and skills that will result in professional quality images.

Liz Rogers is an underwater and cave diving photographer and explorer, who regularly travels to remote areas where serious dedication is required to get the shot. Part of the thrill of visiting rarely seen areas is the opportunity to share the experience with others - both in person and with pictures. Liz has brought back images that have been published in both the diving and mainstream press, and placed in major international photography competitions.  

 

She writes regularly on her website, explaining the backstory to her images each week.
