Photography Trip with Saeed Rashid

Saeed Rashid, a self-professed neek (both a nerd and a geek combined) is here to share his knowledge and expertise with you in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Saeed is a popular choice for photography workshops for his approachability, energy, enthusiasm and sense of fun, which will make your experience memorable as well as informative.

Saeed is a regular speaker at both the London and Birmingham International Dive Shows, hosting successful workshops for underwater photography and post production editing, both in the UK and abroad. Whether you have just picked up your first camera, or have been shooting for years, Saeed’s relaxed and personal approach will ensure you benefit from his extensive knowledge and professional experiences.

Saeed has always had a close relationship with water and especially the sea, as some would say it runs through his veins. As a child Saeed would spend days on the beach wondering what was both over the horizon and under the waves. Now as an adult Saeed sails over the horizon and dives down under the sea to find those mysteries that he only dreamt about when he was younger.

Saeed’s Photography Workshops

On this trip Saeed will be on hand to guide you through the underwater photography process from start to finish as well as helping you to develop your skills to spot and frame your subject to its full potential underwater, but also show you how to polish your images using a variety of simple post-production techniques when back ashore.
