Jaws Movie Poster

Few movie posters are as familiar or as terrifying as Roger Kastel‘s poster for Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic JAWS, which features a large shark making its way straight up towards a swimmer.

A British cage diver and filmmaker named Euan Rannachan captured an incredible shot of a great white shark off the coast of Mexico, which is remarkably similar to the above mentioned JAWS poster. It shows a 17-foot great white making its way toward the surface, facing the camera with a toothy grin. Thankfully there were no oblivious swimmers above for the shark to target.

You can see both the image and the JAWS poster below for comparison.

Here’s what Rannachan had to say about the photo:

“The shark in my image is a female and her name is Squirrel. We’d been with her for a while. We have these people on the boat called shark wranglers and they throw these two-foot chunks of tuna to get the shark close to the surface.

The shark wrangles played an important and dangerous part on the acquisition of this amazing picture. A guy named Crazy Luis stood up on the boat to bring the shark to us when we sit on the surface in the shark cage.

Sometimes when the wranglers play with the sharks, the sharks get p****d off and dive down under the boat and the bait so they can come rocketing up and get it. That’s exactly what Squirrel was doing here, she was fed up probably messing around on the surface and dived back down under the boat. It was really deep there but the water clarity was amazing.”

Below the image and the JAWS poster you can also find some other great shark shots Rannachan has captured that will no doubt get you excited for Shark Week later this year.
