‘To promote underwater photography, provide opportunities for divers to nurture photography skills, and increase marine environmental appreciation to all through this medium.’
In January 2010, a small group of divers with an avid passion for underwater photography began meeting regularly to share their images, in-camera and photo editing skills.
Interest grew and Snappers’ Underwater Photography Inc was formed in March 2012.
We continue to grow – mentoring, learning and sharing, while having fun.
Who knows what each photographer can achieve with their acquired skills, and the group’s support.
This MyPhotoClub site is being implemented – the main Snappers website is here
Visitors and new members welcome.
Thanks once again to Erika Berzins who delivered an absorbing presentation on her experiences diving in Antarctica. Something not for the ill prepared. Also makes me reflect on my whinging when the local water gets down to 16 degrees.

Snappers September 11th Meeting
Special guest speaker – Erika Berzins – DIVING ANTARTICA
Erika is an experienced scuba diver whose dream was to one day dive in Antartica. So she organised the trip of a lifetime for her special birthday.
Please come along for this special presentation by Erika who will explain the training and planning she did to make this incredible trip a reality.
She will take us on a photo/video and narrative journey to the cold and spectacular regions where few have dived before.
Our first post on the new site!
Many Snappers members participate in the quarterly Nelson Bay Sea Slug Census a collaboration between Combined Hunter Underwater Group & Southern Cross University.
