Formed in 1967, the British Society of Underwater Photographers meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 8pm at Imperial College, London. At these meetings, a particular aspect of underwater photography is discussed, fronted by very experienced, award winning photographers. Following this discussion, a competition is held, where the winning image or portfolio of images is voted for by the audience. After a break, the main event is a presentation by an individual or a small group of people. These presentations can range from underwater photographic expeditions to specialised techniques for certain types of underwater photography and talks
by renowned personalities. Frequently the topics and/or speakers are considered of such interest that members and guests often travel hundreds of miles or more to attend.
