Red Sea Photo Trips with Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield

and Emperor Divers

Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield has joined forces with Emperor Divers!Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield

Duxy will be leading two liveaboard trips in the Red Sea, offering relaxed flexibility and personal advice on photo, video, processing and production.

At the forefront of underwater photography and travel for many years, Duxy brings with him a light-hearted take on the diving world and how it has changed the way we now take underwater photographs and video. He combines his time helping people to choose and use cameras, housings, strobes and lenses, escorting trips and running workshops around the world.

Each itinerary has been specifically tailored to provide fantastic photographic opportunities with the bonus of Duxy’s knowledge.

Enjoy ‘open deck’ diving on at least three days during your week – dive with your buddy between 6am to 6pm at times that suit you. There will also be three guided ‘excursion dives’ with the Emperor guides and/or with Duxy himself. All teamed with the usual high levels of service from Emperor Divers.
