If you’re in the New York City area today, then you gotta check out the biggest underwater photography event around: The July meeting of the NYUPS.
The New York Underwater Photography Society will be gathering tonight with the theme of “Big Animals.” Professional photographers will first share their tips and techniques for photographing the most popular big animals like sharks, whales, and marine mammals.
Then, NYUPS attendees are invited to share 10 of their favorite big animal images for constructive critique and applause. As always, NYUPS is a free event open to underwater photographers and divers of all levels. We encourage anyone in or around NYC to check out the event, which kicks off at 7PM at the Alpha Fusion Restaurant. If you wish to submit images, please email them to Joe Tepper before 5PM.

NYUPS June Meeting: Big Animals
For most people, summertime means bar-b-que, camping, and trips to the beach. For underwater photographers and divers, it is all about big animals.
The summer months are a great time to photograph big animals underwater. There are whale sharks and manta rays off the coast of Mexico. In Tonga, humpback whales gather by the dozens. And just a short drive up the road, you can swim with blue and mako sharks in Rhode Island.
In honor of all of these seasonal sights, the July NYUPS meeting (July 8) will be themed “Big Animal Bonanza.” First, there will be a presentation focused on helping improve your big animal photography. We will look at some of the techniques for capturing top-notch shots, as well as the planning and logistics for finding big animals.
Then, we want to see your favorite recent big animal images. We want to see it all: Sharks, whales, manta rays, crocodiles, dolphins, or anything else that you can think of! We know NYUPS members have some sweet shots of the big boys and girls of the ocean.
