New York Underwater Photographic Society at the NYC Sea Gypsies

NYUPS is always looking for new theme ideas. Long time member George Sharrard suggested Cephalopods and Echinoderms. Being a man of science I had to do a Google search to see what he was talking about! Photos of octopus, cuttlefish, squids, seastars, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, and crinoids is a good idea. We are expanding it to Marine Creatures without a Backbone. This includes the above as well as all marine invertebrates.

Please send us up to 8 of your Marine Creatures Without a Backbone images or a video. We will continue with a group discussion format. As a group we will tell you what we all liked about your images and ways they could be captured differently.

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: “Marine Creatures Without a Backbone“. Email all of your images to You should get a confirmation email within 24 hours. If you do not get a confirmation email them again to

The deadline for images is now Sunday April 15th, 2018. If you are going to bring videos or photos to the meeting on a jump drive please send us an email.

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, NYUPS at the Sea Gypsies wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested.
