South Florida Underwater Photography Society Meeting

The South Florida Underwater Photography Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of underwater photography through its membership.

The South Florida Underwater Photography Society was created in 1980. SFUPS was created as a means and place for fellow underwater photographers to meet and talk with other underwater photographers to exchange and share ideas by discussing them. They would listen to lectures from professional underwater photographers, organize interesting dives with photographic opportunities and promote the sport in general. At the time, there were only a few books on the subject so people were learning about underwater photography by trial and lots of errors. It was and still is word of mouth that has allowed SFUPS grow into what it is today.

SFUPS has been meeting for over 10 years now and has grown into a monthly meeting place where all who share the common interest of underwater photography are exploring and learning from one another for the sake of capturing better underwater images.

Monthly meetings consist of guest speakers; slide presentations, intra-club slide competitions and exchanges of information relating to scuba diving and all aspects of underwater imaging.

Each month a colorful newsletter is sent out by email, which provides articles and photos of the previous months intra-club contest winners. We also organize dive trips both local and exotic for the photographer in mind. At years end at our holiday party, the person with the highest points accumulated from the contests and club participation are awarded as our photographer of the year.

Everyone is invited to attend the meetings to learn more about underwater photography and to meet others who share the same interest.

SFUPS meets the second Tuesday of each month, except December, at the Courtyard Marriott, 2440 Cypress Creek Rd, Cypress Creek at 7:30pm.

    Thank you Monica for the recommendation. We used to do the intra club contests first. We are trying out new 'sets' in our new location. Also sometimes the speakers request to go first in the event they have a long drive to go, and prefer not to stay to the end. Wayne came down from North Palm Beach, we haven't seen him in a long time. He gave a great presentation, didn't he! I am glad you were able to make it, and hope you will join us again. Suzan

    Lots of great information and good presentation on shoots. The meeting appears to have a well organized format. Would be good to do contest voting before the main speaker so people didn't leave early and miss this important sharing experience. Also gives the participants more feedback from a larger pool of voters.
