Origins

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.

SOme resources CREATING MOVEMENT IN YOUR IMAGES

Hi everyone

I thought I would share some resources that got me thinking a bit differently about our next set subject competition – Underwater Motion.

Even though these resources focus mainly on above water many of the approaches would be very applicable to UW and also got me thinking a bit more creatively about his topic., I am sure to be experimenting.

I hope they help provide some guidance and direction. Good luck, Ian
