New York Underwater Photographic Society at the NYC Sea Gypsies

Dutch Springs, Bethlehem, PA

The goal of NYUPS at the NYC Sea Gypsies has always been to share the joys of underwater photography and video, and to help divers improve their imaging techniques. For this reason Michael Rothschild, Olga Torrey and Larry Cohen will be once again giving the annual Underwater Photography Workshop. This year, it will be a two part program, an evening presentation at the House of Brews in NYC, and an in-water workshop at
Dutch Springs.

The session at Dutch Springs was originally scheduled for August 24th, but because of concerns about visibility, we will be rescheduling it. While we do not have a date yet, if you are interested please email us at The class is limited to 10 spots, and people who signed up for the original date will have priority once the new date is announced.

This is a terrific opportunity to try out photo equipment, get individualized instruction, and have the opportunity to review your images during the surface interval. You do not need your own camera to participate; we will have gear for everyone that needs it. If you do have your own equipment, bring it with you and we will help you get the best out of it.

There is no charge for the event, although admission to Dutch Springs is necessary, and your must have dive gear.

The classroom presentation on "Underwater Photo Basics" will take the place of the August meeting in New York at our usual venue, the House of Brews. This session is open to everyone, even if you aren't coming to the event at Dutch Springs. We will go over equipment, camera settings, lighting, composition and other important factors to help improve your images. If you are signed up for the workshop, please try to attend this meeting, as it will really enhance the day at Dutch Springs.

We want to stress that our meetings are for photographers of all levels. It doesn’t matter what camera you use or how long you've been shooting. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at our August meeting, and to seeing those who can join us at the Underwater Photography Workshop at Dutch Springs.
