I am a big fan of Arnold. I just figure he has his head screwed on and his career in a strong position. The Fine-Art-Fishing-Photography-Aesthetic is his. It's his brand.

Even if anyone did get on a commercial fishing boat for 4 uncomfortable months and took awesome photographs, they'd be told to go away and find another subject because Arnold has done it so well.

It is rare a photographer can find a subject so novel they can call it their own, but Arnold did it.

Of course, there's Jean Gaumy, but I think he had different intentions when going to sea.
