Meet our workshop leaders. Each leader offers unique tours that enable you to get that bit more from your holiday.

  • Alex Tattersall

    My trips are all about...

    Alex’s boundless enthusiasm for creatively capturing the underwater world and sharing these ideas and techniques with others has become the signature of his Oonasdivers workshops. He also has possibly the most extensive bag of underwater toys for all to play with including fluo filters, close up lenses, light shaping devices, laser snoots, and if you are nice to him he may even allow you to have a go on his magic ball!

  • Saeed Rashid

    Saeed is a lecturer at Bournemouth University, popular speaker at UK dive shows, Editorial Consultant for Diver Magazine and member of BSoUP.

    Saeed, a self-professed neek (both a nerd and a geek combined) is here to share his knowledge and expertise with you in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Saeed is a popular choice for photography workshops for his approachability, energy, enthusiasm and sense of fun, which will make your experience memorable as well as informative.

    My trips are all about...

    Saeed doesn’t take himself too seriously, and despite being an award-winning photographer himself, still believes in the pleasure to be had from diving with a camera for its own sake.
