All underwater photographers have a checklist when they visit a destination. Sometimes, photographers will travel halfway across the world just to cross of one tiny critter from their “wish list.” There aren’t many destinations where the wish list is longer than the list of plane rides required to get there; but the Galapagos is one of them.
 
At the October NYUPS meeting, members of a recent Divephotoguide expedition to the Galapagos will be sharing photos and stories of an amazing two-week adventure. Among the presenters, Divephotoguide editors Matt Weiss and Joseph Tepper will tell us how many underwater photo subjects they crossed off their lists- schooling hammerheads, “friendly” silky sharks, marine iguanas, whale sharks, cormorants and even penguins!
 
Divephotoguide leads a trip to the Galapagos every year- and for good reason. The diversity and quantity of subjects in these remote waters are virtually unmatched anywhere else in the world, or in the words of Divephotoguide’s well-traveled Matt Weiss, “It’s the best diving I’ve ever done.”
And while we all might be stuck in NYC for now, hopefully the October presentation will help us escape even for just a few hours. Divephotoguide will be leading another expedition to the Galapagos in 2012, due to the same high demand that sold out this year’s trip within the same week it was announced.
 
We want to stress that all of our meetings are for photographers (and videographers) of all levels. It doesn't matter what camera you use or how long you've been shooting, NYUPS wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested. 
 
As always, the admission to the event is free, but only by RSVP. Please RSVP to rsvp@NYUPS.org.We look forward to seeing you and sharing food and drink at Artctica Bar & Grill!!
