Koh Tao ProVideo is a dynamic and creative underwater videography training company based on the tropical paradise of Koh Tao in Thailand. Setup by a team of some of the most experienced instructors and videographers in South East Asia we are proud to be one of the most popular and successful videography schools in Thailand.
As well as PADI certified Professional Underwater Videography training we make daily customer dive videos for some of the busiest dive schools on the island. Filmed in the morning, edited in the afternoon - the final move is available to watch and purchase the same evening. These partnerships with local dive centres also give our trainees and graduates plenty of paid work experience to polish their skills and recoup their training costs.
Below is a sample of one of our typical movies.
We offer 4 levels of training which let you choose what will fit your budget and schedule. Choose from our selection of popular packages or contact us if you wish to create a custom program to match what you want to get from underwater video production.

It is possible to start these courses with a lower diving certification, but your safety and the quality of your filming might suffer without the extra knowledge and experience these higher levels provide. For more information about these additional skills please see our in-depth courses section. We are happy to arrange any additional dive training if required before you start your video courses (see below).
Camera technology has advanced considerably in the last few years, and with this is mind we have developed a new and exclusive digital camera owners workshop program. The fantastic Canon G16/S120 series and Panasonic Lumix range are a perfect example of this new generation of advanced photographic cameras that also shoot great HD video. Now for the first time we can show people how to unlock the hidden videographer buried inside themselves and their cameras.
Designed for recreational scuba divers with their own cameras and housings, one of our videographers will guide you on a personal half day 2 dive trip. On these workshops we can show you how to get great video from your own camera, if you don't have one of these cameras we can include the rental of one of ours to try before you decide.
All Koh Tao ProVideo videography training is done through our partner PADI 5 star CDC schools at either Davy Jones Locker in Sairee or Buddha View in Chalok Baan Kao. These PADI award winning schools of excellence provide the perfect platform for our courses and plenty of dives to practice with. In addition to these two schools we can offer working internships and full time positions with our client dive centers including Roctopus Dive, Koh Tao Scuba Club, Easy Divers, Pura Vida, DPM, and Rainbow Fish Divers. Our reputation and connections on Koh Tao give our graduates plenty of working experience when they complete their training.
