Before Corey Arnold ever thought about photography, he fished. He knew he wanted to be a professional fisherman, even if he didn’t understand what that actually meant. What was a recreational escape for his father became an identity for him. After studying photography in college, Arnold sought a way to combine those two parts of his life. He eventually found work on a crab boat in Alaska’s Bering Sea, an extremely dangerous and once obscure job, now popularized by the television show Deadliest Catch.
