Hunter Ledbetter retired from the military and headed down to the Florida Keys to dive and fish. He actually stumbled into photography, taking pictures to keep his family and friends updated with everything happening during retirement. The more pictures he took and shared, the more he realized how much people appreciated getting exposed to tropical waterscapes and fish species. Ledbetter is self-taught as a photographer, receiving plenty of help from friends along the way.

The rise of social media has influenced a lot of where Hunter Ledbetter’s photography has gone. He mostly shoots promo work for companies that have products they need to advertise. He shoots with a lot of anglers who need pictures for their social media profiles and websites too. Fishing publications and online media have a steady demand for new images and often require very specific images.
