WOW!!! Was I lucky! On March 11, 2016, I was in Cozumel, diving. Ran was in Belize, but was coming to Cozumel, so I met him for lessons on the bundle that I had bought from him, in Nov. I have had several underwater cameras and could figure out, nicely, how to use them. However, when I bought my Canon G16 and Fantasea light, I felt totally lost! I was in WAY over my head, as they were so much more sophisticated than my previous cameras. I spent the entire day with Ran, learning how to operate my new “toy”. Ran was an excellent teacher and overall really nice guy. I thought I might feel stupid, but he made everything so simple for me and encouraged me by saying I could do it. I NEVER would have been able to figure it all out, by myself. He was also very professional, patient and eager to answer all my questions. We had lots of fun, as well, so the lessons weren’t tedious. The plan was to also do a dive, together, so I could put my knowledge into action, however due to a horrible cold, I was not able to dive. I still think that I’m going to be able to use my new knowledge to take wonderful pictures. I also know that I can contact Ran, anytime, to get advice from him. He is truly a person who loves helping others. I would recommend, to anybody, not only buy great quality camera bundles, but to use Ran’s extensive knowledge of cameras and how to take underwater pictures. I could not be happier!!! Thank you, Ran!

Had an amazing time diving and learning from Ran last month in Cozumel! I have been a professional fine art photographer for over 10 years and was looking to get into UW photography. I have always preferred private or semi-private workshops over large classes, so I was excited when I found Aqua Spirits web site. Ran assisted in the UW housing purchasing decisions before meeting in Cozumel for the lessons. It was immediately apparent that Ran was extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of UW photography and that he enjoyed sharing this knowledge. I feel that I learned more from him in the 2 days of diving and lessons then I would have from other 5 day workshops.
I would highly recommend his workshops!
Sincerely, Alan Zakem.
