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.

Last month our new venue “House of Brews” worked out perfectly. Again we want to thank our President Renata for suggesting this venue! We also want to thank everyone who attended April’s meeting. Lets get an even larger crowd in May!

The theme of our May meeting is “Your Bucket List Shot”. We all have that one creature that we dream about taking a photo of. Maybe it is rare, endangered, beautiful or really ugly. Maybe you dreamed of photographing a certain wreck or visiting a certain location and than you got to go. NYUPS at the Sea Gypsies wants to see up to 15 of your Bucket List photos.

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 NYUPS: “BUCKET LIST SHOT”. Please email all of your images to You should get a confirmation email from Larry Cohen within 24 hours. If not, please email Larry at

The deadline for images is Friday, May 12th. 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.
