Come See Edward Snijders!

The Northern California Underwater Photographic Society (NCUPS) is very excited to have Edward Snijders presenting at our next club meeting! Edward is a very well known producer of award winning underwater documentaries and regularly has films shown at the San Francisco Ocean Film Festival (three films playing this year).

Please take a look at a short clip of what's on deck:

More information on this opportunity to see Edward and his incredible work soon to come...


I've been in communication with Edward and this is going to be a great show!!!


Edward Snijders is in his second career after he left his air traffic control world in 2005.

A long time - British educated -  diving instructor, he started uw imaging in the early nineties, only to focus on uw film making as from 2000. It was not until 2005 that his first productions emerged. His focus is on documentary film making, putting the marine environment in a larger context. But, not exclusively, there is enough room to experiment with 3D and ultraviolet underwater filming or the production of small clips which he reckons the world should see. All activities are covered by the Submarines foundation, which aims to make the submerged world visible to a large audience.

He has more plans and projects than he is probably ever able to finish: a 6 episode series to document the present state of marine life told by its users and the locals. The first one, Boavista, on the verge of change, just finished. Other episodes will deal with Maldives, PNG, Fiji, Red Sea and Caribbean.

A historical documentary on a Dutch marine scientist will be produced April 2013, next there will be a follow up on the Boavista documentary on Maio, another  island in the Cape Verde archipelago.

Production of a 3D feature - with footage shot during the filming for other documentaries -  goes along with all these projects. The 3D film hopefully materializes this year.

Successful – and awarded - productions over the last years:

2006 Reefstory

2007 Seals for Real, which brought the case of the Namiban sealhunt to the attention of the Dutch media and raised questions in parliament.

2008 Eau de Bretagne, a cold water Atlantic documentary

2010 Zenobia, the sunk ferry in Cyprus

2010 East Scheldt, on the Dutch waters

2011 Zeeuws Water (Zeeland Water) a 13 episode documentary series for Dutch television

He is the proud receiver of the Stan Waterman Award for Excellence in Underwater video, but also pampers the succes  of the Zenobia documentary, now also shown at the San Francisco Ocean film festival.

Apart form being an active filmmaker he is founder - and still director - of the North Sea Film festival for underwater movies, which enjoyed its succesfull 5th edition in Rotterdam, Netherlands, last November.
