2020 Bassmaster season has arrived in earnest

Travel season provides opportunities for fishing and nature photos  all over the nation

I head out tomorrow morning from the first Bassmaster Elite Series fishing tournament of the year — and that means I'll be traveling from Florida to the Canadian border and from South Carolina to Oklahoma, capturing amazing photos of bass fishing competition and the beautiful landscapes of about half the United States.

I love working on photos around my home state, and during the past three months I've also captured beautiful photos at Big Bend National Park  and Southern Colorado. But it's exciting to hit the road with Bassmaster and see my fellow photographers and the top fishing pros. These guys are like family to me, and the first Elite Series event at the St. Johns River in Florida is like a big reunion.

I've already got about 20 weeks of tournaments booked this year, and you can follow all the fishing action on my Facebook page and on Bassmaster.com. 

However, one of the great things about the Bassmaster gig is that it affords me opportunities to shoot nature photos during my travels. For instance, the eagle photo above was part of a photo series I shot while working a Bassmaster event on New York's Lake Oneida in 2019.

But I've also shot waterfalls, old barns, Route 66 and too many sunrises to count during the past 12 months. And I can't wait to see what 2020 has in store.

So be sure and follow my Facebook page if you haven't already done so, and you can also follow my Instagram account.The next 8 months are going to be so much fun — and I don't want you to miss out on one of my trips. So stay tuned ....
