Ever wonder what it’s like to go on an extended underwater photography assignment to some of the ocean’s most diverse locations?

At September’s NYUPS join photojournalist Joe Tepper as he recounts and regales the crowd with the epic adventure of his recent 40-day Indo-Pacific assignment. For more than six weeks Joe traversed the most diverse stretch of ocean: the Pacific’s coral triangle.

From the alienesque creatures of North Sulawesi’s Lembeh, to the mammoth coral of Papua New Guinea’s Kimbe Bay, and the sloping lava shoreline of Bali, Joe had it all. Learn why these locations should be the top of any underwater photographer’s wish list as Joe shares his images and techniques for capturing picturesque and rare subjects: WW2 plane wrecks, crocodiles, car-sized sea fans, silvertip sharks, pygmy seahorses, blue ringed octopus, and so so so much more….

So whether you are a first time underwater photographer or have been a shutterbug for years, you are guaranteed to leave September’s meeting with an urge to book a one-way ticket to the edge of the world.

About the Speaker: Joseph Tepper is the Associate Editor for Divephotoguide.com and Scuba Diver-Through the Lens, the world’s first global underwater photo print magazine. Although only 21 years old, Joseph has been exploring and photographing the world’s oceans for nearly a decade.
