Fishing Ecuador

Traveling through South America it became apparent that fishing was a staple for many economies. Ecuador often smelled like fish, even in the mountains. It wasn’t until I saw an over sized pickup truck speeding down the highway leaking fish blood that I understood why most of the country’s main roads smelled like fresh catch. We stopped in a local fishing port during the morning haul. I asked the fisherman if I could tag along and make some photographs. harbor  fish blood ecuadorfish dump fisherman's portrait fallen fish fishing lifestyle Fregatidae fisherman  fisherman fishing ecuador fishing truckharbor

About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.

    I can only imagine the fishy smell. Although that doesn’t bother me — seeing your pictures makes me feel like eating ceviche!! Great images. 🙂
