Ten diving friends and I spent a week at Sunset House. During the week 4 of us took the UW photo class. 3 had fancy cameras that needed you to push that button and twist that nob. Mine? An inexpensive point and shoot. While my camera was not a challenge to teach, both Jim and T took as much time... More

On the day if my wedding my photographer never showed and didnt respond to my calls. My wedding coordinator called Tony from Cathy Church Photography and he saved the day. He rushed to my hotel within... More

I can't say enough about Cathy Church and her staff. All are very giving of their time and experience plus, by their own admission, how they are always learning. No where else could you get the combination of photography skills applied to the art of underwater picture taking. I had to buy a new strobe from them and they set... More

I took a strobe placement class from T, basics and then I took basics in macro shooting and wide angle/fisheye principals with Cathy. I learned a... More

A big Thank You to Jim for his high-quality work. He just printed some macro plant photos onto canvas for me and they turned out beautifully. They really look amazing. Thanks a bunch!

I had a fantastic time at the Cayman Photo Fest 2014 located at the Sunset House. I tremendously improved my underwater photography skills and education. The entire team (Cathy, Herb, Jenn, Tony, Tee, Diana and Jim) was very helpful from the moment I checked in to the event. Diana and Jim were the photo pro’s on the boat I was... More

My husband gave me a gift certificate to take an underwater photography class with Cathy Church. Since I was really just beginning, I was really nervous, but Jim was great. Very patient and encouraging. In just a couple of hours, he teaches you the fundamentals, then off you go in the water for about an hour to practice. I was... More

I'm a beginner with the Go Pro camera and while it is simple to use, I could not figure out why the battery was dead after less than a minute of shooting. One of her assistants, a gentleman from South Africa (I'm sorry that I did not get his name) checked out the camera and battery to determine that the... More

I first attended one of Cathy's 10-day underwater photography workshops back in 2001, and 2014 marked my 6th trip to Grand Cayman for yet another great PhotoFest week. Cathy has a great crew of photo pros who clearly love what they do and are eager to share their passion and knowledge with all who are interested. If you're looking to... More

Just returned from photo fest and I could not have had a better time in my life.
