Brad Harris

Pre-press, Photographer, Writer
Brad Harris grew up in Cooma, NSW and learned to fly fish on the Snowy Mountain lakes and the blue-ribbon streams of the Monaro. This technical fishing background gave him a big head start when he moved to Tasmania 12 years ago.
Brad has worked as a pro photographer since leaving high school and submitted his first article to FlyLife in Issue 17 (1999). He began part-time as the magazine's staff-photographer for issue 42 (2005) and now works full-time for the magazine, taking care of pre-press duties, some graphic design and website content. He is relishing the chance to branch out into video work for the magazine and in his own sideline commercial photography business, BH Photo.
Brad's favourite fishing is chasing tailing brown trout in Tasmania's western lakes, but anything that involves sight-fishing will make him smile. Bonefishing on tropical falts is another favourite.
He lives at the foot of Mount Wellington on the edge of Hobart, just a few hundred metres from a trout-creek... of course!
