Occasionally we run an article featuring one of our favourite fishing photographers, such as the article we did on Canadian photographer, Steve Perih back in November 2013, or those amazing seatrout photos by Stephan Dombaj, published back in September. Well, know we’ve found a new star – the UK’s Matt Harris.
This is the first in a series of posts we’re writing about Matt – this time featuring photographs from Matt’s visit to ‘No See Um Lodge’ in Alaska. There are plenty more where these came from, so stay tuned for future updates. In the meantime, if you’d like to hear a bit about the man himself, read on…
About Matt Harris
Matt has been hooked on fishing since he caught his first fish – a perch – when he was six years old. Matt is a fly fishing aficionado – he, like many, believe it’s the purest form of our wonderful sport, and he’s caught all kinds of ‘beasties’ (his word), including huge salmon in Russia, peacock bass and piranhas in the Amazon jungle and the prehistoric barramundi in the remote waters of Australia’s Northern Territory – all on fly.
Alongside his day job of taking photos for advertising campaigns, Matt has been taking photographs fly-fishing for well over ten years, working for clients like Frontiers, Roxtons, Aardvark McLeod, The FlyFisher Group, Flycastaway, Fly Odyssey and Where Wise Men Fish. He’s also written numerous articles for the likes of Esquire, GQ Magazine, This is Fly, Catch Magazine, Trout and Salmon, Fieldsports Magazine and Trout Fisherman. All of that means he’s been lucky enough to travel all over the world – from Argentina to Zambia – all in the name of his beloved sport.
You hate him too, right?
