Fujifilm UK is holding an underwater photo festival in Looe, Cornwall â€“ their first â€“ dubbed ScubaSnap Weekend 2009 on September 12 & 13. It promises a weekend of fun, diving and underwater photography in the wonderful surroundings of the Cornish coast and countryside.
In association with local dive operators Looe Divers, the weekend will include shore diving, photographic tuition and seminars from industry experts such as Mat Trim of Fujifilm and Maria Munn of Ocean Visions, photo competitions, with some fabulous prizes to be won, and a dinner dive and BBQ in the evening.
ScubaSnap Weekend 2009 is open to divers of all levels, but if diving doesn’t appeal then snorkellers can take part, too. The only rule is that all photos taken and entered in the competitions must be taken on a compact camera. As well as photography education, goers will have the opportunity to critique their images with industry experts over the course of the two days.
