It was a fantastic evening with Special Guest Underwater Photographer Shannon Conway showing us some inspiring images and giving us some great tips to take that winning shot! Tammy Gibbs, President of the Western Australian Underwater Photography Society (WAUPS) explained the rules and how to sign up, closing with Lee Johnson, Manager of Perth Scuba giving us a run down of the exciting speakers & specials we’ll be having over the course of the Underwater Festival.
