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.

Picnic Lunch Sunday 7th April

Hi Everyone,

I know a lot of you will be diving the high tide this sunday and thought it would be a great opportunity to get together for an informal BYO picnic/ lunch at the Fly Point reserve after high tide. I hope to see you there.
