Photographer of the Week – Jett Britnell

Vancouver-based Photographer of the Week, Jett Britnell, began photographing the wonders of our oceans at a time when capturing images was limited to only 36 frames of slide film. As a self-taught photographer, Jett picked up a camera in 1983 and never looked back. Over the years, Jett’s vibrant underwater images have graced dozens of magazine covers, while his words and images have been published within many more.

Bursting with color and texture, Jett’s images remind me of how I imagined the seas looked, long before I started diving myself. Each piece of eye candy is reminiscent of a firework display and piques the viewer’s curiosity with intricate patterns, fine details, and vibrant hues.

Jett’s lifelong fascination with the sea developed at a young age through episodes of the famous television series, Sea Hunt, and the underwater exploits of childhood heroes such as Ron and Valerie Taylor. While Jett’s watery wanderlust has taken him to off-the-beaten-path destinations around the world and face to face with big pelagics, his preferred canvas lies below the emerald green surface of British Columbia’s nutrient-rich waters.
