When it comes to photographing fish underwater, Jason Arnold likes to get up close and personal. The impressive photos in this gallery are certainly evidence of that. Although a good bit of Arnold's time as a professional photographer is spent covering pro sports on contract, he's on or in the water every chance he gets. The Ft. Lauderdale-based photographer has contributed many opening-spread photos and several cover shots to Sport Fishing. See more of Arnold's work at jasonarnoldphoto.com.
