Our Objective

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

// Action for CLUBS
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.
