SOLMAR V is proud to bring back
photo pro Bonnie Pelnar for a special photo excursion
to the Socorro Islands. What better place to sharpening
your photo/video skills than the Socorro Islands, long
known for an abundance of marine life and consistent
big animal encounters.
Bonnie will be available to assist
you with questions and tips about underwater photography
throughout the trip. During the evenings Bonnie will
also be offering presentations and giving up her secrets
on how to use Adobe Photoshop to make your best shots
of the day even better and will be demonstrating Photoshop
highlighting the features that are especially useful
for underwater photos. Bring your digital cameras and
your laptops! AND Bonnie is a lot of fun to have onboard!
the first images Bonnie captured with a rented
Motormarine camera during a 1987 Cozumel
dive trip, she was hooked! Her hobby became
a passion and her passion became a career.
She left a successful career with Kodak over
fifteen years ago to start her company Under
Watercolours and hasn't looked back since.
Today Bonnie is recognized as one of the
leading designers in the dive and travel
industry with over 130 original web sites,
15 CD ROMs, logos, catalogues and brochures
you've probably picked up at the dive shows.
Thousands of Bonnie's photographs can be
found online and in print used to promote
the best in the dive industry. You've seem
many of Bonnie's photos in Sport Diver and
Scuba Diving Magazines. Her travels have
taken her to the most exotic dive destinations
of the world; Indonesia, Papua New Guinea,
Australia, Fiji, Philippines, Africa, Galapagos,
Socorro, Palau, Micronesia, Hawaii, and all
over the Caribbean and Mexico. Bonnie has
been running photo workshops and tours for
over eight years.
