Photographer of the Week – Josef Litt
By Joanna Lentini, January 4, 2018 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

Yawning red grouper, Jardines de la Reina, Cuba

As a child growing up in communist Czechoslovakia, Josef Litt dreamt of far-off places and adventure—from the depths of the ocean to the wild African landscape. Once a week, he watched a natural history series and often imagined himself shooting movies in these exotic locations. Delighted by his affinity for adventure, his parents gifted Josef a small film camera, which was his first introduction to the world of photography. Enthralled by his new hobby, Josef found himself spending long hours taking and developing photos in the darkroom at his school.

Many years later, and deep into a career in information technology, Josef’s love for the natural world and photography was reignited. In 2007, his childhood dream of shooting underwater became a reality. Ten years on, Josef continues to dive and shoot beautiful underwater and topside images. He takes a keen interest in learning as much as he can about his subjects—whether it’s the territorial boom of a giant grouper or the geology behind a breathtaking landscape. He is now a member of the British Society of Underwater Photographers and the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain. He has also authored a book, Galápagos, about the topside and underwater delights around the Galápagos Islands.
