The life of a fisherman is something that always have seemed iconic to me. Being on open water all day, short nights, only a few of the same people around you everyday. And then the smell of fish, 24/7. This lifestyle has always appealed to me. Not necessarily that I would like to be a fisherman myself, I don't eat fish and can't really stand the smell of it, but the lifestyle appeals to me in a romantic way.
When Tape offered me the chance to be part of a commercial shooting of a shrimp fishing company in the north of Fryslan, called Solt, there was no time to hesitate. This is something I really want to do. With a couple of other guys we got the chance to be part of the life of the fishermen for two full days.
And wow, the experience it was. We were extremely lucky with the combination of weather. We had an amazing sun with some dramatic skies in the background on the first day. The second day started with an amazing sunrise.
