BSoUP Meeting - June 2006

Previous month Next month

The next BSoUP meting takes place on Wednesday 14 June at 7.30 p.m. for 8.00 p.m. in The Holland Club, Imperial College, London, SW7 5BD.


Steve has been published to very high acclaim in both the UK and overseas and is currently a regular contributor to the German Tauchen magazine, Europe's highest circulating dive magazine. He is not yet a full time photo pro, 'I have a day job as well' he reminds me, but I can see him heading that way with his skill and vision. He has taken photos since 8 and learned to dive at 14, then progressed to work full time as a professional PADI and NAUI diving instructor in Egypt and the Maldives for 6 years during the '90s.

Steve will talk about wide-angle underwater photography, appealing to all levels of experience. He will cover dome theory, lighting techniques - artificial, natural and balanced and applications such as shooting seascapes, big stuff and close-focus wide angle. Check out Steve's site on

Paul is a regular BSoUP speaker who brings along his deep passion for the beautiful marine life of the British Isles. Through underwater photography, writing, presentations and activities in schools, Paul, along with Teresa, aims to raise awareness of Britain's wonderful marine animals and support the protection and conservation of our beautiful but vulnerable marine habitats.

Paul Naylor's new book, the 2nd edition of Great British Marine Animals, was published on 11th July 2005. Written for non-specialists, it helps identify the common animals that live around our shores and also shows the many intriguing ways they go about their lives. Paul will talk about the fascinating animals found in some of his favourite dive spots around Britain. Check Paul's website out at

Don't forget 14th June - a week earlier than usual.
