Photographer of the Week – Henry Jager
By Joseph Tepper, December 3, 2015 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

As seems to define the best of underwater photographers, Henry Jager has a knack for capturing the picture perfect moment. Sure, if it’s just one or two shots, maybe it’s luck. But almost every one of Henry’s images seems to be timed to perfection.

Whether it’s a yawning frogfish, diving sea turtle, or divers’ lights masquerading as eyes in a spooky-shaped cave, Henry’s ability to squeeze the shutter at the optimal moment leaves even the best photographers among us a slightly more saturated shade of green.

Such a gift, of course, has produced numerous of awards and publication features, including being a regular honoree in the DPG monthly contests, National Geographic’s Travel Photo of the Week, and a handful of placements in Wetpixel’s Photo of the Week.

“Our Earth’s biodiversity is amazing. Especially underwater, you find the most crazy creatures as well as the cutest, most colorful and most impressive ones,” Henry explains. “My passion is to picture this fantastic underwater world and make the beauty of life available to everybody.”
