Professional Photographers Of Canada (PPOC) Press Releases: Jett Britnell.

"I read the news today, oh boy. About a lucky man who made the grade." - The Beatles.

Two Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC )Association Press Releases with my name on it. Professional Photographers must have an Accreditation in at least one specific genre of photography to advertise themselves as a member of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC)Association. My submission in the underwater category was singled out as being Excellent Overall and the panel of judges commented, "a great example for this category."

That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for... for... mankind? Naw, that one has been used already. Sounds too moon-landish. How about... We're just happy to have passed the audition.

Over the past year we have dived or snorkeled Tiger Beach, Cat Island, and Isla Mujeres with this family of friends. Some of the nicest peeps you'll ever find living on the 3rd stone from the sun. ;)

“Well, Come See A Fat Old Man Sometime.” – Rooster Cogburn (from the movie, True Grit).

Alex Delong and I made the steep climb up to the toppermost of the highest pyramid in Mexico's Maya world today! At more than 130 feet in height, Nohuch Mul, which means “large mound” in the Mayan language, is located deep inside the jungle and also happens to be the tallest pyramid at Cobá archaeological site in the Yucatán Peninsula. What better place to take a selfie than from the top?
