Alan Haig-Brown
marine photographer and writer

Growing up on Vancouver Island in the 1950s, I learned to swim and canoe among the salmon on the Campbell River. In the ' 60s, I went down the river to the sea where I worked on commercial fishing boats and coastal freighters. In the '70s I went to the upper reaches of the British Columbia's greatest river, the Fraser, to teach and learn with the Chilcotin and Shuswap First Nations. In the mid 1980s I began a seven-year career creating and editing five regional west coast trade magazines. Now I just write and make pictures. Mostly I am a writer but many of the places that I go, from Louisiana bayous to Asian rivers and from European canals to Alaskan islands, can be even more difficult to arrange for two than for one so I do most of my own photography as well. My work divides into three segments. I contract work for governments and corporations, I write and photograph for magazines and I generally have a book project on the go or at least in the planning stages. My intent with this page is to give you an opportunity to see some of the work that I do in these three areas of the fairly specialized niche that I inhabit.

I contribute to many commercial marine and commercial fishing magazines. I am field editor, a position that gives salary-free mast head status, for Professional Mariner. They are both great magazines because they have content that respects their readers and editors that respect their writers.
