The next BSoUP meeting takes place on Wednesday 21 September 2005 at 7.30 for 8.00 p.m.

The Holland Club, Imperial College, London SW7 5BD.

As the nights start to creep in, why not head to South Kensington for an underwater photography fix, a chat with fellow enthusiasts and to enjoy a cheap glassful at the subsidised union bar! We have loads of interesting stuff on the agenda this month.


During a trip to New Zealand, Simon learnt some unexpected lessons as he realised that too much emphasis can be placed on the camera and equipment, overlooking the techniques and skills required to take pleasing and successful images.

Simon will explore ways of really improving your pictures, without mentioning the camera.

Simon, a BSoUP member, has been published in many media including BBC Wildlife magazine and Dive magazine,he has also been a presenter at the annual Visions conference (see below) describing his journey to becoming more full time photographer and less 'real worker'.

Recent adventures include sharks in the Bahamas and split levels in a cavern and his next big endeavour is a week in Antarctica followed by a drive across the Namib desert!

Alternatively, please send your digital images in advance following the competition rules and guidelines on resizing to:

N. B. PLEASE DO NOT send images directly to Alex Mustard as he currrently overseas.


Carole is an immensely enthusiastic u/w photographer who lives in Dubai with
her husband Leon and her favourite dive destination is the Philippines. Carole will present shots from both there and Dubai. Her photography and passion for the undersea world have led her to co-publish a dive guide to Dubai called 'UAE Underwater Explorer' which includes details of the most dived locations, with all the colour photographs supplied by Carole. A well-known local environmental campaigner, Carole is passionately against shark-finning and drift-netting. Many of her pictures have appeared in UAE newspapers and magazines and she has a vast library of shots, reflecting the
many different parts of the world in which she and Leon have dived. Carole also has her favourite subjects - nudibranchs, of which she has a photographic collection of 230 different kinds.

Enjoy, hope to see you at the meeting, but please remember to enter the competition even if you are unable to attend.
