Would you like to learn more about
If you're interested in digital photography we can teach you everything you want to know about taking pictures topside or underwater AND what to do with those pictures in Photoshop or Elements once you've captured them. Everyone is invited. No camera is too big or too small. Even if you're not a photographer, join us for some great trips to some of the most exotic destinations in the world.
We travel around the world to dive and photograph the most exciting and exotic reefs we can find. We conduct digital underwater photography workshops about six times a year. Many of these workshops are free to guests of our sponsor resort or live-aboard.
How did this Meetup Group get started?
I (Bonnie the Organizer) have a very active Meetup Group in California. I have many friends in Florida who are divers and/or photographers, so I decided to expand the CA Meetup Group to Florida and invite you all to join us for dive trips either in Florida or at some other warm, tropical destination. I love to share what I know about underwater photography, so I'm really exited about meeting more willing, active participants.
Who should join this group?
All certified scuba divers...PADI, NAUI, SSI, YMCA, etc world wide. Many members are photographers, but you don't have to be a shooter to join us on any local dive or dive trip. If you would like to get certified, send us a message and we will point you to a dive shop that can get you certified in a couple of weeks. No time? Come with us to try a Discover Scuba class in the warm, crystal clear waters of Cozumel or other tropical destination. All ages over 18 are invited to join.
Who should not join this group?
Whiners, complainers, stuffy boring people who don't want to get out and DIVE, people who can't commit to a travel reservation, people who are generally disliked by all other Meetup Groups...OK, you get the picture. This group is about having fun doing what we love to do most...SCUBA DIVE and TAKE PICTURES!
What kind of events are planned for the future?
There are many upcoming trips and workshops planned through 2008 and into 2009 but we will be organizing local dives too. We'll also organize other events and plan local parties.
Would you like to get more involved?
I would love to have some friends in Florida sign on as assistant organizers for local events in Florida. I want this site to be a venue for you to use. If you have any great ideas for events, local dive trips, etc., please contact me and I'll post it for you. Feel free to also use the message board if you're looking for someone to go diving or hear of an event that might be of interest to other members.
Is there anything I shouldn't do on this website?
Spamming members of this group is NOT ALLOWED. Unfortunately other meetup group organizers sometimes try to recruit from other groups. This is just a bit over the top. If you've got a local trip you would like to promote, please DO post it on our Message Board, but if it obvious spam or promoting something that is a serious conflict with what we do here, I will call you on it.
How do I start a new photo album?
If you've RSVPed YES and attended an event, you'll automatically be able to upload pictures after the event. Please do! We love pictures. If you want me to start a gallery for you (unrelated to any event here) please email me and I'll be happy to set on up for you so you can upload your own photos.
