PRESS RELEASE: Fujifilm To Host Underwater Photo Festival
Fujifilm UK Ltd. is pleased to announce their first ever underwater photo festival; ScubaSnap Weekend 2009. The festival will take place in Looe, Cornwall on the 12th and 13th September and is guaranteed to be 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.
On the Saturday, divers will be able to do their best hunter-gatherer impression and take part in a dinner dive to hand-pick scallops for the evening beach BBQ, where they will be able to unwind after a hard day below the waves and regale buddies with diving stories.
Other sponsors and exhibitors present at ScubaSnap will be Aqua Lung, Suunto, Scuba Travel Worldwide Holidays and PADI.
