Never able to sit still, I'm always on the go. With a camera at my side, I'm always seeking out a new adventure, experiencing a new place, living in a different culture, or meeting someone new.  My wanderlust has brought me to the far corners of the earth and I still have a lot of ground to cover.

Commercial Salmon Fishing, Bristol Bay, Alaska

Chris Ford

"The boat I was assigned to picked me up from the tender and off we went.  I was given the appropriate gear to keep me dry and a small tool with a nail on the end.  My job was to lift the salmon from off the bottom of the boat with one arm, with the other I was to bleed the salmon by slicing a vein inside their gills.  After, I'd throw the salmon into the hold and go on to the hundreds of salmon we were bringing in with our cast net." 

I finally got around to putting together some of my photos from documenting commercial salmon fishing on Alaska's Bristol Bay this last summer.  See the entire experience here: http://www.chrisford.com/bristolbay
