A Day on a Shrimp Boat – Georgetown, South Carolina

Mike Keegin was generous to share some shots from his photo journal of a Georgetown shrimp boat, the Miss Nichole.

Make sure to check out his Shrimping Web Journal, which offers a personal view into the SC shrimping industry.

Mike writes: “These photos follow the activities of Bobby Goings, the owner and captain of the Miss Nichole and certain members of his crew. Bobby was open and willing to let me take a peek into the life of a shrimper in a typical shrimping season. The story starts when I visited Georgetown, SC, a quaint village with a steel mill, a paper mill, and a shrimping fleet docked on the Waccamaw River in the downtown area. I liked how the boats looked and constantly went to the pier to photograph them. I met Bobby there and asked him if I could go out with him and the crew when they went shrimping. He must have thought I was some sort of flake but I told him I wanted to do a photo journal on the industry. He warmed up to me after enduring my repeated visits and within a short period of time I went out with them for a morning catch.”

Hi Mike,
I am a video journalist from Florida. I just spent time in Beaufort filming shrimp net makers and their craft. I need some stills of shrimp catches, etc. Would you be willing to share for pictorial credits? I will be submitting this documentary to some film festivals…
thanks,
Sharyn
