RAID Launches Action Camera Course
Lights! Camera! Stock! Dive training agency RAID has teamed up with an award-winning filmmaker Jeff Bonman to create their new Action Camera course.
The new course is suitable for everyone, whether you’re completely new to underwater cameras or you’re a budding pro with your own YouTube channel. Goodman says the RAID course will “give you the help, insight and coaching you need to take your results to the next level…and more.”
The course gives clear and concise advice on how to get the best results from your action camera. Rapid advances in technology for diving, as well as underwater camera equipment and lighting, mean that traditional photography courses fall short of the mark. Goodman’s content is lively, up-to-date, detailed, comprehensive and easy to follow. Additionally, his creativity and understanding of the challenges a diver faces in capturing the perfect image – still or moving – makes this program unique and relevant to today’s diver using today’s equipment.
“Jeff managed to condense the experience of over 10,000 dives and countless hours of filming and underwater photography into a very tight package for us,” says PJ Prinsloo of RAID.
Prinsloo, VP Training at RAID, adds, “Jeff shows just how versatile action cameras can be and that as a class of product they’ve come light years ahead of previous versions in regarding capabilities, function and quality.”
Goodman, who is based in the UK, runs bespoke underwater video and editing workshops for beginners to budding professionals, and says he is very happy with the course.
“We based the RAID course on a recent book, which, although a perfect complement to the new RAID course, is not part of the official curriculum. I decided to help students get the best videos and photos of their gear, because wonderful results can be achieved with just a little extra attention and a few secrets,” he explained.
