Reef Photo Anilao Workshop - Days 6 & 7


The 2019 edition of the Reef Photo and Video Anilao Underwater Photo and Video Workshop wrapped up last week. This was the 6th annual Reef workshop in beautiful Anilao, Philippines. Each year we’ve been treated to some of the best diving in the world, with an astonishing assortment of underwater creatures for subjects. Our host was the idyllic Aiyanar Beach and Dive Resort. Chris Parsons filed daily reports from Anilao about the Workshop.

This years workshop is drawing to a close, with today (Friday) being the last official dive day. Anilao didn’t fail to deliver today though, as seas were flat calm most of the day with the best visibility of the week. 

Our guests seemed to have a great time, and I think they enjoyed having Phil and Lee along this year.


Our friends at Aiyanar put on a outdoor BBQ and party for our final evening, complete with underwater photo themed cupcakes. I ate a seahorse cupcake myself. Aiyanar has been such a gracious host for each of these past 6 years and we all feel pampered if not spoiled by the amazing staff. 


Today’s highlights: Skeleton shrimp, bubble coral shrimp, a third species of cardinal fish with eggs, snake blenny, snake eel, giant cuttlefish, a butterfly nudibranch, thumbnail size lionfish and a six foot long pelagic tunicate.
