The Lembeh Strait in Indonesia is known as the “Critter Capital of the World” for good reason. It is home to an abundance of some of the planet’s most rare and unusual marine life, which also makes it a “Mecca” for underwater photographers.
Lembeh offers easy diving conditions and no shortage of weird and wonderful photography subjects, making it a great destination for an underwater photography workshop. This year’s 5th annual “Capturing Critters in Lembeh” weeklong workshop, hosted by Lembeh Resort, saw the return of photography and videography professionals Steve Fish, Hergen Spalink and Kerri Bingham. New to the event was the addition of an optional four-night advanced extension.
