Underwater Photography Training

30-11-21 10:00 - 12:00
Somersall Park
Address: Cannot determine address at this location.

Join DCRT for a training day on how to use underwater cameras to film aquatic species.


We will be getting into the water to learn how to set up and place underwater cameras (GoPros) in order to get the best footage using pole mounted and weighted cameras. We will be mainly capturing video footage. There is a possibility of reaching into the water so attendees may wish to bring a spare change of clothing. All other necessary equipment will be provided by DCRT.


Training will happen on Tuesday 30th November at Somersall Park, Chesterfield – 10am – 12pm.


If attendees enjoy this training there will be more opportunties to use our equipment for future projects.


This training session will be led by Matt Duffy (fishery habitat officer) and Sally Hyslop (community engagement officer).
