Our Objective

To promote underwater photography, provide opportunities for divers to nurture photography skills, and increase marine environmental appreciation to all through this medium.’ 

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.

We meet at South Newcastle Leagues Club on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6pm.

Hi everyone, i just noticed that our website had monthly meetings listed for December 2019 and January 2020. This is incorrect and i have just amended the website to show that our next monthly meeting will be in February 2020 at Souths Leagues. The monthly competitions do continue through our christmas hiatus so please keep submitting your photographs.

I great night was had last night at the Dixon Park Surf club for our christmas get together. Thanks once again to Trevor Cotterill for organising.
