A documentary and fine art photographer, as well as commercial fisherman, Corey Arnold has been working and photographing on the Bering Sea since he first landed a job on a King crab fishing boat in 2002. He now captains a commercial salmon fishing operation during the summer in Bristol Bay, Alaska, and continues to explore man’s relationship with nature in the Bering Sea wilderness with his camera. His vast experience visiting remote Alaskan outposts and native villages surrounding the Bering Sea and many years of sea time working on fishing boats has given him a unique perspective and insider knowledge of the region and its inhabitants.
Corey’s acclaimed photographs have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide and published in National Geographic, Outside, Harpers, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and Time, among other outlets. He also has two published monographs of photography by Nazraeli Press and is represented by Charles A. Hartman Fine Art in Portland, Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, and Redeye Represents in Los Angeles. Arnold was recently nominated for a 2018 World Press Photo Award and won first prize at Pictures of the Year for his 2016 National Geographic cover story: Unplugging the Selfie Generation.
