Judge, Paul Colley

Our image galleries show BSoUP’s monthly competition results.  Images are available here for the general public to view.  If you would like to see the judges’ feedback on competitions, then please consider joining BSoUP for a very modest annual fee through this link.  Competitions are not the final word in the development of underwater or any other photographer.  But with regular feedback from our judges members can gain the knowledge that makes their images succeed.

BSoUP is a not-for-profit organisation that helps its members create great underwater images, regardless of member experience level or photography equipment.  The extensive network of experienced underwater photographers provides expert advice and encouragement to newcomers.  It inspires people to improve their photography.  You can learn about the benefits of BSoUP membership at this page.

We hold monthly meetings on line from 7.30 to 10pm every third Tuesday of the month.  Members can listen to the results of monthly competitions and hear inspirational speakers talk about their work. In future we hope to meet once or twice a year in the UK.  Our members receive BSoUP’s superb magazine ‘in focus’ two or three times a year.  The magazine contains members’ articles and images plus tips and techniques, news of events, meetings and competition winners.
