Fall Fishing in Washington - Adam McKibben

Fall Fishing in Washington

In the Fall of 2016 I was lucky enough to tag along during a commercial salmon fishing run in the Hood Canal, Washington. The trip was only 2 days long, but the amount I learned during those two days by being immersed in this world was incredible. Watching fishermen and women work is like watching a beautiful machine, every person knowing exactly what needs to be done and what their role is and executing that job to complete the whole. It was one of those situations that can look a bit like chaos, until you start to realize how deliberate every task truly is. 

Part of my job was to focus on shooting some lifestyle and product photos for Xtratuf Boots as well as Red Ledge Jackets, so that will give you a better understanding as to why there are a lot of images focused on those things. 

I hope you enjoy!
