Mitch's love of the ocean and its miraculous creatures began at the age of 12 when his father taught him to SCUBA dive. From his first adventure 50 feet (15 meters) beneath the Sea he was hooked.

Mitchell’s inspiration for The Kingdom of Oceana was born of exploring the spectacular coastline, lush valleys, and vibrant coral reefs of the Hawaiian Islands. On these excursions, he imagined what Hawaii was like hundreds of years ago. Before Captain Cook arrived from England. Before the golf courses and hotels. Before the ukulele and the Mai Tai became icons of Hawaiian culture. He dreamed of a time when the islands were an undiscovered magical paradise.

These days, Mitchell divides his time between Southern California and Hawaii. He has two teenage children and a dog named Magic.

Liquid Motion Underwater Photo & Film School Course Reviews and Endorsement by mitch yankowitz endorsement review cozumel underwater film school underwater photo school


Dear Guy and Anita,
I cannot thank you enough for the best week of SCUBA and underwater photography of my life! I’ve been diving since the age of 12, and this was by far the best experience I’ve ever had.

Guy’s knowledge of the flora and fauna of Cozumel is unsurpassed making him a fantastic dive guide. Even though I’m an experience diver, I found that his guidance and advice honed my skills and comfort in the water, taking it to a new level. The personalized dive master service was a treat.
While I’m a decent photographer, I was never thrilled with my underwater photos. Guy worked closely with me and my equipment teaching me the finer points of shooting in raw/ manual mode, composition, lighting, and  working with both my wide-angle and macro wet lenses.
Guy also gave me excellent guidance how to approach many sea creatures such as turtles, toad fish, and sting rays without spooking them to ensure I got the best photos.
We also spent time in the afternoons reviewing my photos, with Guy teaching me how best to enhance them in Adobe Light Room and Photoshop.
I highly recommend that anyone wishing to improve their underwater photography skills spending a week with Guy in the beautiful pristine waters off the coast of Cozumel.
