Photo & Video Guidelines:
On the contrary to what seems like the most natural images to capture during your fishing trips, we are not just looking for posed fish catches with your rod—though we do still love to see that! One of most rewarding things about our sport is the time spent on the water and with Mother Nature in general! We love and appreciate all images surrounding the lifestyle. These are the images that truly resonates and elevate our marketing materials. Listed below are a number of pictures to be on the look out for capturing and sharing with your favorite rod manufacturer!
Tackle and gear, setup/rigging, organization closeups, tying, pre/post-bass tournament, competitions, industry events, shots including Douglas apparel, general photos or footage of your life out on the water.
Landscapes, broad view of an angler with their surroundings, camp photos, sunrise and sunset, fog, animal encounters, insect hatches, nature/foliage, natural anomalies, fish releases.
Mid cast rod bends, close ups (rod label, reel, guides, hand interaction), rods and reels in the boat, on the bank, in camp, on moss/tree bark, in the water, multiple rods together.
And of course, posed fish catches!
Remember, this is a great opportunity to market yourself or your company/services to our audience as well! We always credit, tag or link to the original content provider.
