I’ve been travelling the world as a professional photographer for over 35 years and this was the experience of a lifetime for me. The opportunity to swim with Humpback whales in Tonga with Craig is ‘absolutely’ the experience of a lifetime. His extensive photographic knowledge is coupled with an infectious enthusiasm to share his affinity with the ocean and these magnificent creatures. I say to anyone having thoughts about doing a workshop in Tonga with Craig – DO IT! If you have a bucket list, fill it with this one, it’s exhilarating, you’ll be buzzing and talking about your experience until you can get back to do it again… I am…

I can say that I learned more in this workshop than any other photography class. With Craig’s help, my photographs got better and better each day as I was finally able to “crack the code” of shooting underwater in a housing in manual mode. Craig generously shares not only his expert shooting skills, but also his best tips for editing your photos in the computer. If you want to photograph whales, you need to start by having talented guides to find them! Craig has teamed up with the best local captains and guides in Tonga. Our group regularly concluded each day’s boat trip with memory cards maxed out with images and videos of whales.If you want to photograph whales, go to Tonga and learn from the best. Highly recommended!

It was incredible to be able to learn from Craig as I have always admired his work and approach to it. He was completely honest and answered all questions with an incredible depth of knowledge. I couldn’t recommended one of Craig’s workshops highly enough to any one who wants to take their work to the next level

My photography has improved in leaps and bounds since this course, both behind the camera and when editing. The tips and tricks I’ve learned are truly invaluable. Craig is a fantastic teacher and an all round great bloke!

The recent Ocean Photography Workshop with Craig Parry was an awesome experience, one that I have already gone home and put into practice. From first meeting Craig, who was so welcoming to the theory and practical side were lessons I would never had known or learnt without this course. I will be booking further classes with Craig when they come up to improve my photography even more. Thank you for providing these courses and sharing your knowledge and skills
