Join Luke Inman and learn from his 20 years of experience, plus his unique list of qualifications and skills allows Luke to expose  students to a side of videography that most entry-level videographers can only dream of.  Currently, Luke is leading bespoke or fully customisable expeditions to the sea lion colonies around La Paz, highlighting these exceptional creatures in their native habitat. The natural curiosity of these agile marine mammals combined with the clear, calm waters around Isla Espirito Santo create the perfect outdoor studio for beginner through advanced film and photography students. This is an ideal training environment: whether you're a diver looking to take your photography skills to the next level, or a photographer interested in exploring the other 70% of the Earth, Los Islotes provides the perfect conditions to take your skills a step further.
