The first book in the Wise Divers eBook series, 101 Tips for Underwater Photographers is written and photographed by longtime, professional underwater photographer, Marty Snyderman, and designed and edited by Eric Riesch.
The tips provide suggestions for underwater photographers of all experience levels and offer valuable reminders and guidance regarding a variety of concepts and techniques. The content includes skills underwater photographers will want to master and utilize, as well as common mistakes to avoid.
“ Marty Snyderman is one of the most eminent and prolific underwater photographers of our generation…anyone venturing underwater with a camera will find that the advice within its pages will help them keep their camera system working as it is supposed to and create the pictures they desire.” - Adam Hanlon, editor Wetpixel.com (From the introduction).
Illustrated with Marty’s photography, the text is written in an easygoing yet educational style. The tips cover a wide variety of topics ranging from pre-dive preparation, handling and care of equipment, the use of lighting and strobes, working with models, to post-capture processing. You will learn ways to create photographic opportunities, how to “get your shot”, and how to handle camera equipment, both above and below water.

Throughout his career, Marty has worked to conserve and share the magic of the undersea world.
Invaluable, I have on my traveling photo laptop for review on the journey there. Wish I had had it 30 years ago. The “tips” cover framing, composition, not getting distracted while setting up….things I have been learning the harder way.
This book contains a treasure trove of valuable tips, tricks, reminders and lessons learned to help any underwater photographer improve on their craft and create more impactful images.
