Specializing in underwater photography and cinematography, especially in extreme environments. Jill is also frequently engaged as a motivational speaker sharing her thoughts on exploration as a guiding force in business and life's pursuits.

About My Business:


An award-winning filmmaker, Jill Heinerth is also known as an industry pioneer in the use of closed-circuit rebreathers. She has used rebreathers to document difficult underwater scenes in extreme environments for media outlets around the world. Jill’s photography and writing have been featured in prominent magazines and major newspapers around the world. More people have walked on the moon, than have been to some of the places that Jill’s exploration has taken her right here on the earth. From the most dangerous technical dives deep inside underwater caves, to searching for never before seen ecosystems inside giant Antarctic Icebergs, to the lawless desert border area between Egypt and Libya while a civil war raged around her, Jill’s curiosity and passion about our watery planet is the driving force in her life. Jill’s accolades include induction into the Explorer’s Club and the inaugural class of the Women Diver’s Hall of Fame; she received the Wyland ICON Award, an honor she shares with several of her underwater heroes including Jacques Cousteau, Robert Ballard and Dr. Sylvia Earle; she was named a “Living Legend” by Sport Diver Magazine; and selected as Scuba Diving Magazine’s “Sea Hero of the Year 2012”.  In recognition of her lifetime achievement, Jill is being awarded the inaugural Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration. Established by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, the medal recognizes singular achievements and the pursuit of excellence by an outstanding Canadian explorer. She will receive the award in November 2013, during a ceremony at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. With her latest project, the “We Are Water Project”, she has produced a documentary film, a live presentation and interactive web resources to help lead an educational effort for everyday behavioral changes that will lead to greater access to and preservation of our endangered fresh water resources. In support of this effort, Jill and husband Robert McClellan rode their bicycles 4,300 miles across Canada, from British Columbia to Newfoundland in 2013, meeting people and through presentations to groups large and small, spread the message of “Water Literacy.”
