Fisherman, Photographer, Documentarian
A photographer and commercial fisherman, Corey Arnold documents the sea and the people who work on its waters. Childhood fishing excursions with his father sparked Arnold’s desire to pursue a career on the ocean. As he explains, “These escapes into the vast sea wilderness . . . inspired me to seek out experiences beyond the town limits. I followed my childhood dreams of being a professional fisherman and carried my camera along to document the absurd, the mysterious, and the beauty that surrounds a life at sea.” After seven years aboard a crabbing ship, Arnold started his own sockeye salmon fishing operation, which he continues to oversee.
