Solomon Islands

Expedition Dates:November 3, 2011 - November 13, 2011
Destination:Solomon Islands

Join us on an underwater photography & video expedition to shoot some of the best reefs in the world. The Solomon Islands are remote and unspoiled. The reefs are some of the healthiest in the ocean due to little pressure from development, tourism and even fishing. This expedition is appropriate for photographers of all levels - whether you are just starting out, looking to improve your photography or just looking to get to one of the most photographically productive destinations. Of course, videographers are welcome too! Jason Heller  or Matt Weiss will be leading this special trip to the exotic Solomon Islands.

Solomon Islands Underwater Photography

Solomon Island Diving

Solomon Islands Underwater
The Solomons Islands should be on every underwater photographer's list. The photo & video opportunities include an abundance of both wide angle and macro. There are muck diving sites and all sorts of critters for macro lovers, as well as walls, reefs, pinnacles and coral gardens with an outstanding variety and quantity of marine life. Large schools of reef fish are everywhere, and barracuda, big-eye trevally and other pelagics cruising in the blue all present excellent wide angle opportunities. And don't forget about the World War II wrecks, which are full of life and history.

We will also have the chance to shoot some of the local culture. Local villagers tend to enjoying coming out to the boat in their dugout canoes. The local kids love posing for pictures.
