How Freediving Can Transform Your Diving Business
February 14, 2017 | 03:25
Admired for being both audacious and elegant, freediving is quickly gaining traction. At the Deepblu Expert Spotlight Sessions at DEMA 2016 in Las Vegas, Canadian freediving pioneer François Leduc explained how conventional scuba diving businesses can make the most of its growing popularity. #freediving #business #DEMA2016 #ApneaCity #DeepbluOriginal...

Le weekend passé nos candidats instructeurs enseignaient à un groupe de nouveaux apnéistes. Sur cette photo Richard Price, un de nos candidats instructeurs, dirige la séance d'apnée statique sous la surveillance d'un des instructeurs et fondateurs de ApneaCity, Philippe Beauchamp. Last weekend our instructor candidates were teaching a group of new freedivers. Here is a picture of them doing their static requirements under the guidance of one of the instructor candidates, Richard Price and the watchful eyes of ApneaCity's instructor Philippe Beauchamp. #apneacitytribe #apneacity #instructorcourse #freediving #staticapnea...

This image makes a good argument for avoiding deleting photos on the fly in the water when you view them through the LCD screen of the camera which is within the housing…It is also a solid reason why expectations often get in the way of taking good photos. When I got in the water and saw the size of the school of jacks I immediately had an image in my mind. I tried and tried several times to capture what I had imagined but without success. Every time I tried to swim away and dive down to get a larger perspective of the school they actually followed me. In one instance I arrived to the bottom, turned and found the ocean growing dark…the school followed me down and engulfed me. The diver in the photo @andreaasunsolo became the decoy and eventually the human subject that lends perspective to the image. I asked Andrea to dive down and occupy the school of fish so that I could be free to position myself to capture the image I had envisioned. I swam away distancing myself from the school, dove down, raised my camera, framed the shot and took the picture. As I surfaced I brought up the photo on the cameras LCD screen to review it. I thought it was ok but again, not what I had envisioned. I wanted to try again but the school of fish had reorganised themselves less vertically and the moment had passed. I looked again at the image and for a brief moment I thought about deleting it. Better to wait until I see it on the computer. I am very thankful that I trusted my instincts to avoid deleting until I review my images on the desktop of my computer. With a simple white balance the photo revealed a swirling biomass of fish forming a heart punctuated by a lone diver - @andreaasunsolo. When I first posted this I had no idea that it would be so well received…The marine protected area within which this photo was taken is a beautiful example of how we CAN get things right and how we can work with mother nature to ensure that our oceans are preserved and protected for the future. Thanks to everyone who continues to like and to follow my feed. #freediving #onebreath #thewatermenproject #ocean #natgeo #missionblue #iucn #saveouroceans #apneacity #terramarproject #exploringtheglobebucketlist...

Here is another Vlog post from one of our instructor candidates from the Toronto freediver community, Andrew Ryzebol, who shares with us his first impressions after the first week of the instructor's course with William Winram. #apneacitytribe #apneacity #freediving #learningtoteachothers #williamwinram...

If you would ask the question to our students and athletes they would probably tell you that we are like an old couple. When @pmbeauchamp and I have the opportunity to freedive together we don't need to talk much because we know each other so well. Our shared passion for freediving led us to meet @william winram who trained us to become freediving instructor. We then went on to create our own freediving school, @ApneaCity inc. We now spend most of our time teaching and coaching others. Freediving gave me my best dive buddy but most importantly my best friend! Picture taken by our good friend Chantelle Blanchard during our annual freediving under ice! #bestdivebuddies #bestfriend #apneacitytribe #apneacity #freediving... More

Thank you Cathy.... More
