Brad Nicol is a commercial photographer living in Denver, Colorado. After graduating in 2008, he decided to combine his love of photography with his passion for fly fishing. Angler Images is his creation.
Fishing since the young age of 6, Brad has developed a love of nature and the sport of fishing. Having taken numerous trips with his father, Brad has fond memories of Striper fishing on the big lakes of Texas or chasing trout in the beautiful waters across the U.S. He has been fortunate to explore his love of the outdoors and wild places in various places that our country holds.
One of Brad’s biggest passions lies in the wild places of our country and the public lands that we are all owners of. Brad is an active member of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers and shares the vision of Backcountry Conservation:
Our freedom to hunt and fish depends on habitat. While many of us enjoy hunting and fishing on a range of landscapes, including farm fields and reservoirs, there is something special – even magical – about hunting deep in the backcountry or fishing on a remote river.
Wilderness hunting and fishing deliver a sense of freedom, challenge and solitude that is increasingly trampled by the twin pressures of growing population and increasing technology. Many treasured fish and wildlife species – such as cutthroat trout, grizzly bear and bighorn sheep – thrive in wilderness. Others, like elk and mule deer, benefit from wilderness. From the Steens Mountain Wilderness in Oregon to the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho and the Boundary Waters of Minnesota, BHA members treasure America’s wilderness system and strive to add to it.
We take the advice of Theodore Roosevelt: “Preserve large tracts of wilderness … for the exercise of the skill of the hunter, whether or not he is a man of means.”
Shortly after completing his degree in commercial photography at the Brooks Institute of Photography, Brad and his wife moved to Denver, Colorado. Today he spends his time running an architectural photography business, chasing trout, and hunting game all over the American West.
