About the Instructor

Hi, my name is Kobie Rhodes and I’m a PADI MSDT, with 30 years of diving experience, 17 of which as an instructor.

For the past 15 years I owned and operated my own photography and videography company, mostly based out of Singapore, but often am OS on shoots in the SE Asia region or back in Australia.

I’m passionate about shooting and creating awesome images on land, in the air, and underwater.

I enjoy learning about, testing and using new gear as much as getting the best out of my existing gear.

I love teaching and sharing knowledge with others to further their image creating abilities, as well as continuing to learn and improve my own skills.

I look forward to creating new images with you!
