New York Underwater Photographic Society at the NYC Sea Gypsies


As 2017 comes to a close we hope that everyone had a year full of adventure, documenting their travels above and below the water. As underwater photographers we find ourselves in some amazing locations. We have the opportunity to photograph our travels on the surface. For this reason It is important for us to look at all styles of photography and art. We are lucky that NYC is our home and we have many galleries and museums to visit.

One of my personal photography heroes is Henri Cartier- Bresson. The
Henri Cartier-Bresson India In Full Frame show is at the Rubin Museum until January 29th 2018. The museum is open till 9PM on Wednesday evenings so lets go on an above water field trip!

This will be an informal gathering. Lets gather in the Rubin Museum's Henri Cartier- Bresson gallery between 6PM and 7PM on Wednesday 12/20/17. If you are sure you are going to join us send an email to

It is time to view images created by a master and see how it influences our shooting above and below the surface!
