Photo classes and workshops

Find the best way to learn more about underwater photography with a group class or a private class designed just for you—any age, any skill, any camera!

Cathy has been teaching underwater photography for over 50 years—mostly in Grand Cayman and in workshops throughout the United States. She doesn’t just throw facts at you, she adjusts her teaching to match how you learn and what you want to know. She loves watching your excitement when your photos get more and more beautiful.

Cathy Church teaches workshops at a number of dive shows, including Beneath the Sea. Topics include many aspects of underwater photography and editing photos. She is passionate about her seminar helping fearful people learn how to enjoy SCUBA diving.


The Cathy Church Underwater PhotoFest has the world’s longest dive times! 2019 was their 10th year of week-long immersions into underwater photography at Sunset House, in Grand Cayman. On shallow dive days, you can dive, shoot, come up when your tank is low, get some water or fruit while your tank is changed (you don’t even have to get out of the water). Go back down and do it all over again until three hours are up.

Cathy Church

Cathy has been taking photos underwater since 1965. She is a pioneer of photo techniques and is in six SCUBA halls of Fame and the Explorers’ Club. Her work has been published in hundreds of magazines, including diving titles, travel magazines, newspapers, and scientific journals and books. She photographed J.V. Hart underwater for her chapter in a book on environmental portraiture by Jim Cornfield. She is also a marine biologist with a keen eye for animal identification and behavior. Her long history with cameras and diversity makes her proficient with the latest models.

Her commercial clients have included Kodak, Nikon, USVI, the cruise industry, Atlantis Submarine and Intuos TV. She has worked with ad directors to ensure photographs that the client wants, while using her own skills to enhance the image to better fit their needs.

Cathy is also available to travel to other locations, except to dive under the polar ice.
