Jett Britnell Photographics ~ "It's Alive!!!"

"Look! It's moving. It's alive. It's alive... It's alive, it's moving, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, It's Alive!!!" Ok, so I have shamelessly borrowed what is perhaps the most famous line in horror movie history to introduce to you... insert short drum roll and cymbal smash here... After a long hiatus, my website is back on the world wide web with a new & improved offering that features samples of both my underwater and topside photography - along with numerous examples of my publishing & advertising credits. I plan on updating the site with nude... errr, I mean... new images as they are created. Check it out!

Strawberry Anemones Forever!

Northwest Dive News October 2008 Issue

Sometimes it takes awhile before I actually see my work in print. My story and images about diving in British Columbia’s Discovery Passage titled, “Strawberry Anemones Forever” appeared in the October 2008 issue of Northwest Dive News.

Publishing Rush!

DIVER Magazine November 2008 issue

My photos and story titled, Liquid Rush – Descent into British Columbia’s Nakwakto Rapids, appeared in the November 2008 issue of Canada’s DIVER Magazine. Publisher/Senior Editor, Phil Nuytten, wrote in his SOUNDINGS editorial “The Nakwakto Rapids piece is a good one… I’ve had some memorable dives off Nakwakto’s “Tremble Island” (as the locals call it). Can you imagine a current so swift that an island throws a serious rooster-tail?! If you are an ‘extreme dive’ enthusiast, you should think about adding this notch to your gun-handle: the ultimate drift dive.”

Thank You, Phil!

Pitt Meadows Golf Club

New Years Eve 2009

While I am perhaps best known for my underwater photography, I also have many of my topside images published in various media worldwide. While attending this year's New Years Eve Gala at my golf club this past week, I noticed some of my images on a promo poster for the club hanging in the main foyer. A good omen perhaps for the year to come…
