GAME FISH

I started fishing when I was 3 years old so I have always had a connection with fishing and game fish. I prefer to photograph gamefish in the wild, but have also had great opportunities to photograph bluefin tuna in pens off the Baja California coast and Turkey. This included the harvesting process, where "tuna cowboys" wrestle big tuna in an ever shrinking net. This was one of those times in my photographic career that I felt I could get run over (and possibly crushed), by a big animal going at warp speed at any given moment!
