Jean Christophe Godet
Jean-Christophe Godet is a French born, Guernsey-based photographer. He is Artistic Director of the Guernsey Photography Festival and runs several other projects on island and internationally, as well as being appointed for many commercial commissions.
“I discovered photography at an early age, as a teenager. Like many, I fell in love with the process of the darkroom; probably a banal statement, but seeing a photograph appearing at the bottom of a tray was magical at the time.
Gradually I developed my skills, and then over 15 years ago I went travelling intensively across the world for 18 months (the Middle East, Asia, Australasia and South America) to work on personal projects. Upon returning, I entered and won a national photography competition, winning Travel Photographer of the Year. The prize was a professional commission for a publisher, which was in Sardinia. I loved the work, and the professional commissions kept coming.”
