as ac can tell you, i have something of an obsession with the discovery channel show "deadliest catch" about the brave alaskan crab fisherman who risk their lives on the open seas. as someone who is afraid of even pool water, their life's work is unbelievably amazing to me. i had the chance to become acquainted with one of the show's deckhands (aboard the ship rollo) via email and found out he's also a phenomenal photographer. corey arnold decided to make his living working aboard the rollo while continuing to pursue photography on a freelance basis. his work is a must-see and transports you to a different place and time entirely. i suggest checking out the arctic photographs. i have the utmost respect for these fisherman and tip my hat to corey arnold and his phenomenal work (on and off the rollo). [thanks, corey!]

I'm a deadliest catch addict also; (and anthony bordain, 5 takes,globe trekker, and tribal rites. oh and the amazing vacation homes :-) Anyway, that said, I get so caught up in deadliest catch and how dangerous it is. I often wonder what their lives are like off season and what a wonderful surprise to find this!

Great Feature!
I absolutely love his photographs. They capture so much.

Though I like the glam and studio photography, but his gallery blew me away! So unique and special.

Thanks for the feature Grace!

Haha, I LOVE Deadliest Catch! I think it's a guy thing. I was just sitting around the other day, thinking about how bummed I'm gonna be now that it's done for the year. Are you guys giving Lobstermen a try?

I'm so happy to see people who love Deadliest Catch as much as I do. I would totally skip social functions to watch it! I think these photographs are lovely in both color and composition - I have to try Corey's site later b/c you made him too popular and there's no bandwidth left! :)

the whole life at sea thing is exciting, dangerous, and curiously alluring. even if you've seen the movie, you may like reading "a perfect storm" and the other (female) captain wrote a book also (sorry can't think of it at the moment) that was great.

one of my friends, aaron marrs, was a fisherman on the boat that sank during the first season of that show. it was so surreal to watch that program and hear them talking about what happened. aaron was working on a documentary to tell the stories of why men risk everything for this job. it is interesting to see how much more awareness "the deadliest catch" is bringing to this field.

I, too, am a Deadliest Catch fanatic. I'm a 49 year-old female librarian and I would rather watch it than anything else. My husband likes it, but isn't as crazy about it as I am. Glad to see that so many other people like it too.

Corey is also a super nice guy.. I run an online gallery in SF and sell his prints. When he goes out on the boat, I totally worry about him! Check out www.beholder-art.com and do a search for Corey.
