PRIZES: LIVEABOARD VACATIONS
CATERING TO THE NEEDS OF UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHERS COMES NATURALLY WHEN YOUR COMPANY IS LED BY A SERIOUS SHOOTER
`In 1988, Aggressor got radical. Every yacht in the fleet unveiled E6 photo labs, enabling guests to process slides on board, before returning to the dock.
This marked the beginning of the brand’s commitment to photography, which to this day continues to expand. Today, that commitment stretches wide, starting with service. On every charter, an onboard photo pro gives free tips and advice for everyone, regardless of experience level, who would like help.
Since 2000, every Aggressor liveaboard also offers a rental pool of Olympus TG-6 cameras. Whether guests want to try shooting for their first time or advance their skills to the next level, they can take advantage of exotic subject material and the support of the photo pro.
Moreover, Aggressor Adventures attends to all the details in between, in large part because the owner of the company, Wayne Brown, has been an underwater image-maker since 2001.
“I see it from their perspective,” says Brown, speaking of photographers. “I see when we need more camera tables, more charging stations and the right software to run photo editing.”
Not only has Aggressor dialed in the experience, they also offer special weeks dedicated solely to photography.
