'Dive Ireland' is being held on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th March 2016 in Athlone, County Westmeath.
This two day Irish show will primarily feature photography next month.
Topics slated include: 'Shooting for Publications', 'Scientific Photography', 'The challenges and rich rewards of underwater photography', 'Why doesn't auto work?" and 'Fish Portraits'.
Respected deep wreck explorer Stewie Andrews is going to talk about the challenges of deep photography. How do you select a camera that is light sensitive enough? And is the housing you want capable of going deep enough?
Meanwhile award winning photographer Dr Alex Mustard will be conducting a Masterclass in 'how to light underwater'.
The full talk schedule can be found here.
