NYC Sea Gypsies Underwater Imaging Special Interest Group

Stacks Image 8
For a number of years, the New York Underwater Photographic Society was an independent venue for showcasing it’s members’ underwater images and video. In 2017, the NYUPS was incorporated into the NYC Sea Gypsies as a special interest group. However, the organization continues with the same mission of sharing our work, constructive criticism, and improving our skills by learning from each other and from special invited speakers.

The theme of our February meeting will be “The Color Green”. Local diving and other cold water locations have green water, some marine life is green, Kermit the Frog says it is not easy being green and St Patrick’s Day is around the corner. The interpretation is up to you. We want to see up to 15 images or a short video. 

All images should be .JPG files, 10” at the largest side and 150 DPI. If you would like to submit videos, please bring them to the meeting as Quicktime files on a flash drive.
In your email, on the subject line please type in caps “UW Imaging: The Color Blue.” Please email all your images to Mike Rothschild at
The deadline for images is
Thursday, February 23rd. You will receive a confirmation of the receipt of your images. If you don’t, please contact Mike.
Please note that you do not need to submit images to attend the meeting – feel free to just come and enjoy the images, share and learn a little about improving your imaging techniques! 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, UW Imaging Committee wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested.
