As an islander living in the middle of the Atlantic…
Everyone should be more or less familiar with the popular movies Jaws and it’s poster artwork created by Roger Kastel. Recently, photographer Euan Rannachan has captured one shot which resembles that iconic image while following a great white shark. “I had a feeling I had it, but things happen so fast down there really all I could do was get ready for the next pass if they’re going to be one. It was not till much later that night, when I was backing up footage, that I saw I had it—and most importantly it was in focus” he said to My Modern Met.
Born in London, England, Euan Rannachan’s artistic flare started at an early age. His first eight years were spent traveling the world with his family due to his father’s career as an engineer. Euan’s mother played a key role in his artistic education. The young tyke diligently watched his mother create oil paintings, sculptures, and sketch in her notebooks. Jessica shared her knowledge of oil painting with Euan shortly after he learned to walk.
Euan’s artistic hobby includes photography of all kinds including underwater, film making, Graphic Design, Drone piloting, and fine art. He is a corporate photographer for the Clorox Company and also the San Jose Sharks along with being the Art Director for Dakota Shy wine in Napa California. Euan also won an Emmy for a commercial he was in for the San Jose Sharks in 2017. The fine art paintings can be of people, landscapes, or whatever the commissioner desires.
