April NYUPS Meeting: Underwater Photography in the Galapagos
By Joseph Tepper, April 6, 2016 @ 02:44 PM (EST)

Where is the best place to photograph whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, manta rays, mola molas and more? Well, if you take each subject separately, you could spend years visiting all of those destinations. If you want them all at once, you gotta go to the Galapagos.

At the April Meeting of the New York Underwater Photography Society (NYUPS), DivePhotoGuide Editor Joe Tepper shares his images and stories from photographing the Galapagos. Hammerheads, mola mola, mantas, iguanas, penguins, diving cormorants, sea lions—the Galapagos has them all, and Joe’s images will inspire you to book a ticket. He’ll also share his pro tips for shooting in difficult conditions like the Galapagos, where current is king.
