The South Florida Underwater Photography Society (SFUPS) is a non-profit social organization dedicated to the promotion of excellence in underwater photography through its membership. Society members have been meeting since 1980 appealing to the interests of hundreds of photographers, raising the awareness of ocean conservation initiatives, and sharing with our local community images of the sea life and reef scenes South Florida waters have to offer.

Monthly meetings consist of guest speakers, digital image presentations, monthly intra-club photo competitions and exchanges of information relating to scuba diving and all aspects of underwater imaging. The Society routinely attracts marine scientists from local Universities, leaders in the dive industry, and is oftentimes a wayward point for industry professionals of underwater photography traveling through Florida to meet and dive with our members.
