HALFBEAK | BALLYHOO
Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Belize

A small school of Ballyhoo feeds on floating seagrass in Belize. Tucked up tight to the surface, drifting with currents and blending into the colors. If you look closely you see they are tipped with lots of color and have a unique lower jaw.

SEA SERPENT | GREEN MORAY EEL
Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Belize

Hol Chan is also the habitat of a large moray eel population. With 5 different morays, the Green Moray is the largest specie of Moray eels. It’s been said the green moray is not green in color it’s actually brown. The yellow tint of the mucus that covers its body, along with the drab background color, gives the fish its characteristic uniform green color.

This is a photo of a school of wild sockeye salmon staging at the mouth of the Kulik River. Their bodies are transforming its shape and colors in preparation for their last greatest run. When the time is right, they will proudly swim up river give life and to also sacrifice their very own life too. They know their last swim is of most importance. The gloom of death doesn’t exist amongst their great purpose of living, surviving and giving back. They proudly sing their death tune like a hero going home.

THE SACRIFICE OF A KING

KING SALMON | NUSHAGAK RIVER, ALASKA
Protect Bristol Bay Alaska

Chinook Salmon (or King Salmon) in full colors is a beautiful sight to see. These fish have only one job: to travel back to spawn and to die. They unselfishly and willingly give up their life so the next generations can survive and the ecosystem can utilize its decaying body to gain nutrients. The cycle of life, it is so fragile.

NEW 2015 LAS PAMPAS LODGE CATALOG IS HOT OFF THE PRESS!
Published, Commercial Catalog 

This is one of my favorite shoots that I look forward to every year. The fishing is great, the scenery is superb and the local people are the salt of the Earth. It’s the people that bring me back year after year. The culture, spirit and tradition of the old world are still alive and well.

Ol’ Henry got it right, but I’ve already knew it since a kid …. “Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.” … But sometimes I get too busy and forget, that is until I visit the quieter parts of the World, where time stops and Mother Nature roams free.

I always take a few images of bubbles in every river. What at first happened on accident is now a staple image. Each river offers unique shapes, colors and patterns.
