Website of the Week - Dan Bolt

"Underwater photography is, first and foremost, my hobby. I enjoy immensely the challenges and rewards it provides and it allows me to switch off from my day-job in I. T.

I first learned to dive with Torbay branch of BSAC back in 1987 when I was 13 years old and I have not looked back since. Some years were spent with Brixham SAA/BSAC as well as the branch at my university in Cheltenham. I am now a Direct member of BSAC.

I started taking an interest in underwater photography when the digital era made it relatively cheap for sport divers to take up the challenge. Since then I have used a stream of Canon, Olympus and Fuji cameras, including a dSLR, but I am currently very happy with my Olympus PEN E-PL1 micro 4/3rds camera. For my style of diving/snorkelling is small size, quick responses and superb image quality makes it the perfect companion."

Ocean Artists Society - Shark Conservation film

The Ocean Artists Society has posted a film about shark conservation. 48 members contributed their artwork to the project, and the music was scored by a member artist. Amanda Cotton describes the goal of the film:

"As ocean advocates and artists, it is our duty to create a connection between those who view our work and the ocean. We serve a pivotal role as her voice, as steadfast protectors, just as sharks play a vital role in the health of our oceans in keeping balance and order within them. The survival of our oceans, and of ourselves, are reflected within the story of sharks themselves. Without them in our oceans, we are lost. In their future, we create our own."

The Ocean Artists Society will be presenting a new film every quarter. The next theme for 2013 will be Water Awareness followed by Saving Coral Reefs, and Ocean Conservation.

Nick Blake
Nick Blake

Website of the Week - Nick Blake

A childhood fascination with diving and the ocean, inspired by the 70's TV series "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau", led to Nick joining North West based Rammy Divers, age 14 in 1980. Diving primarily around the UK, it is only in more recent years that Nick's long standing interest in photography has extended into the water. Having initially bought an Olympus underwater compact camera in 2004 and subsequently a Nikon D300 DSLR, one to one tuition with renowned Underwater Photographer Martin Edge has proved instrumental in Nick's development. Now fuelled by dive trips to more tropical climes as well as continued UK diving as a member of Woking based BSAC branch Surrey Aquanauts, you can see a selection of Nick's more recent underwater photographs together with images of personal interest above the water at www.nickblakephotography.co.uk/


Hugyfot housing for GoPro Hero 3

An image has been posted on Facebook that shows a Hugyfot housing for the GoPro HERO 3. Details are not yet available, but the image shows the housing having an external monitor attached via a ball mount which presumably uses the camera's HDMI connection. There also seems to be an additional port as well as a window for the LCD BacPac. Housing controls seem to give access to all camera functions. The illustration also shows the housing attached to a tray with two grips.

There are currently no release dates published, nor any prices.

BSoUP - Next Meeting

Wednesday 16th January

New Venue!

The next BSoUP meeting takes place on Wednesday, 16 January 2013at 7.30 for 8.00 p.m. at our new venue, in Room G.01 in the Royal School of Mines, Imperial College, South Kensington, London, SW7 5BD (Directions).  New and prospective new members will be welcomed from 7.30 p.m. See Welcome.

Alison Mayor and Martin Davies: 'Photography for Projects - images as a documentary record and a way of bringing the past and present together'. Alison and Martin are members (Alison is Secretary and Martin is DO) of the Southsea Sub-Aqua Club, which has a long history of wreck site investigation.

Martin Davies

Alison Mayor
Alison Mayor

In recent years the Club has developed an association with a number of local wreck sites, including the LCT 427. This Landing Craft was sunk on its return to UK the day after D-Day.  The Club has researched and surveyed the wreck - broken into 2 parts - as part of Project Kedgehook; the project was awarded the BSAC Duke of Edinburgh's prize in 2012. Serious wreck research is about more than doing a few dives. It involves digging through historical archives, talking to many people, getting permission to dive sites that may be restricted and in this case being sensitive to the fact that the site is a war grave. Alison will give us the overall story and Martin will add a bit about the photographic challenges! Martin has been diving for 35 years and taking photos underwater for almost as long, primarily in UK waters.  He is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and currently uses a Nikon D7000 in a Sealux housing. Martin and Alison have been diving together for about 10 years. Initially new to diving Alison took on the role of diving model for Martin who enjoys shooting wide angle, particularly wreck photography.  More recently Alison has started to take photos of her own - starting out with a Fuji compact but in the last year moving up to use Martin's old D200.

Focus On - 2012 Images The Competition is now closed. There were a total of 39 entries. 28 of the 39 images submitted have been shortlisted for projection and judging at this months meeting and the Focus On Competition Slideshow is now available for BSoUP Members to view. You will be prompted to log in if you have not already done so this session.

Website of the Week - Pash Baker

Pash qualified as a scuba diver in 1996 in the UK. Back in 2007, she started taking video footage using a Sony PD150 (in an amphibico housing). You can see some of the videos she created on YouTube.

Although Pash swore she never would turn to stills photography, she was pleasantly surprised with the results from her first attempt. That was with a Canon DSLR camera in an Ikelite housing. During a trip to Indonesia with Martin Edge, she felt her photography really coming alive and later acheived 3rd place in the BSoUP Beginners Portfolio Competition.

Pash Baker
Pash Baker

Pash now shoots with a Nikon D300s in a Subal housing. She hasn't not looked back since then and is really pleased with the images she has.

Whilst exhibiting at the Birmingham NEC Dive Show, Pash was approached by Coral Cay Conservation and asked to visit two of their sites - in Cambodia and The Philippines. The intention was to capture some of the fun, atmosphere and valuable work done by the charity in the hopes it would encourage others to volunteer or contribute to the effort. You can see a very small selection of the 3000 or so photographs that Pash took during her stay on her website.

Pash, who took over the role of BSoUP 's Membership Secretary on the 1st Janaury 2013, would love to hear your thoughts about her site and the images. If you'd like to know any more, please feel free to get in touch with her at pash@pashbaker.co.uk
