Rui Guerra, CMAS ** Instructor of Underwater Photography, has been engaged for several years teaching the art and techniques, is also the author of the only technical book of underwater photography in portuguese language, "Practical Manual of Underwater Photography" (Dinalivro / 2002).
Being the most awarded Portuguese underwater photographer in splash-in type competitions, both nationally (six times National Champion of Underwater Photography, among others) and worldwide (World Champion in the category of Wide with Diver, Vice-World Champion in general, among others), Rui Guerra now transmits his experience and techniques to all those who want to evolve effectively in the practice of underwater photography.
Aiming mainly to transmit their knowledge and experience in this area, his courses provide the essential foundation and cover all technical and aesthetic issues of underwater photography, allowing students to evolve in a solid way in this area.
