1.5 DAYS


Every detail was tailored to me, and focused always on what, to me, is most important. Far from formalistic, Guy and Anita took into consideration my diving history, my strengths and opportunities for growth, my current kit, and my familiarity, or lack thereof, with cutting edge editing, lighting, and point-of-view subject development.  The pace was tailored to my personal interests, aptitude and energy. Truly enlightening. There is no substitute ...." (Jeremy Cohen)
