Alex Mustard’s Workshop – October 2013
For two weeks in October 2013, Wetpixel took over the entire Lembeh Resort for my Macro and Critter Photography Workshop. I was joined by 31 underwater photographers from all over the world: they travelled from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. And they were treated to a really special trip.
It was one of those visits when Lembeh was just on fire with sightings. I have been coming to Lembeh since before Lembeh Resort was even opened and I can honestly say this time was the best ever for critters. Every single classic Lembeh critter was in residence. We even had a rhinopias on the Lembeh Resort house reef! The quality of images produced by the group greatly exceeded my expectations and I am sure we will see many picking up prizes in major underwater photography competitions over the next 12 months.
My whole group is incredibly grateful to the wonderful staff of Lembeh Resort and Critters@Lembeh for taking care of us so well. Despite filling the resort to capacity, no request was too small to be answered. Lembeh Resort’s staff truly treat every guest as an individual and make you feel that the whole resort was designed and is run specifically for you.
It is not the elegant buildings or the beautiful setting that makes Lembeh Resort special. But the warmth and professionalism of the staff. Thank you so much.
This was my fourth time in Lembeh Resort and I am sure I will return many more times. I know many of my group were already plotting their next visits before the workshop had even ended. See you very soon.
Alex October 2013.
