Where is the best place to photograph whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, manta rays, mola molas and more? Well, if you take each subject separately, you could spend years visiting all of those destinations. If you want them all at once, you gotta go to the Galapagos.
While underwater photography travel has branched into niche dive destinations known for only a single species, the Galapagos delivers dozens of prized subjects, frequently on just one dive. What’s more, the Galapagos has so many sights that can be found nowhere else: Endemic species of penguins and marine iguanas are just two of the species native to the Galapagos that fill the dreams of even the most traveled underwater photographers.
At the April Meeting of NYUPS, DivePhotoGuide Editor Joe Tepper shares his images and stories from photographing the Galapagos. Hammerheads, mola mola, mantas, iguanas, penguins, diving cormorants, sea lions—the Galapagos has them all, and Joe’s images will inspire you to book a ticket. He’ll also share his pro tips for shooting in difficult conditions like the Galapagos, where current is king.

Quick reminder: NYUPS is always free to attend and open to underwater photographers and divers of all level. The goal of the meetings is to create an environment where we can all learn and share some drinks and food while discussing our favorite hobby—underwater photography.
