BSoUP Meeting - 16th April

This month we have a very special evening celebrating Alan James, one of the best known underwater photographers in the UK.

Until recently, Bristol based Alan was the face of UK Sea and Sea underwater camera equipment. Having been involved in the industry since the mid 1980's, his talent as an equipment specialist is matched only by his creativity underwater and his name adorns many a BSoUP trophy among many other awards and accolades. His work is prolifically published, with an impressive number of magazine contributions together with his book 'Beneath British Seas'.

After many successful years as a winning entrant in the annual BSoUP Splash-in events, Alan has decided to give someone else a chance and will this year be one of the organisers of the competition.

Alan is travelling to London this Wednesday evening with his daughter Anna, whose work won top prize at the 2007 beginners portfolio competition. Together, they have prepared a surprise evening for us. Themed 'Presentation by the AJs'.
