Paul will deliver a fascinating presentation about the behaviour of British animals, together with how this can be captured by camera.

Paul has been snorkelling and diving around the coast of Britain for nearly 30 years. Whether in the muddy shallows of a beach lagoon in Norfolk or the deep, clear water around the Orkneys, he has always been fascinated by the animals 'in residence' and their behaviour. For the last 20 years, Paul has concentrated on photographing these animals in their natural habitat and, wherever possible, showing them getting on with their lives, despite his presence. He delivers talks to schools, colleges, conservation groups and diving clubs on the wonders of our marine fauna, and also writes regularly about marine life for dive magazines and other publications. He has a doctorate in marine biology and is an Associate of the Royal Photographic


Following Dave Peake's highly informative talk last month, we are holding a competition for UK shots this month to be judged 'on the day' by the meeting
attendees. Competition rules can be found on the website.


Ken is a BSoUP committee member, our 'in focus' magazine editor, and a long standing, regular and popular figure at the London meetings, annual
Splash-In and anything else involving underwater photography he can possibly get to! Ken has had his pictures published many times and has also been a
well-deserved winner of major competitions. Among many other destinations, both exotic and local, Ken regularly visits the Red Sea, on both land based
and liveaboard trips. He recently returned from one of each (yes, lucky chap), a week in Sharks Bay to the North of Sharm, and just back from 2 weeks
on a liveaboard in the Southern Red Sea.

Since the Red Sea is still such a popular and relatively easily reached location, Ken will present a selection of his shots from the area, describing the sort of shots that can be achieved together with how to achieve them.

Splash-in Barbeque - 5 July

We have arranged for a barbeque for participants and their friends and family in conjunction with this year's BSoUP Splash-in.

The barbeque will take place between 7.00 and 8.00 p.m. on Saturday evening 5 July on the patio adjacent to the Waterside Room, at the Mount Batten Centre, where the slide projection and judging will take place.

A bar will be provided in the Waterside Room to save you having to trek up and down stairs to the upstairs bar!

Cost of the barbeque, with a vegetarian option, will be £8.00 per person. Tickets are limited! So please e-mail to reserve yours (this will help with booking).

Payment must be made no later than 12 noon on Saturday 5 July - otherwise your reserved ticket will be sold to someone else!

Alternative food and drink is also available from the upstairs bar (see Mount Batten Centre under' Food and Drink' for daily menu).
