The Cuban small sugar factory town of Brasil doesn't see many visitors. Here, life is simple. Work all day, sleep all night; rinse and repeat. Everyone makes the same wage regardless of their job, and a relaxed vibe of nonchalance pervades the small inland town.

"McGlothlin is as much a journalist as an angler, creating a visual with words and images like a modern-day lady Hemingway." - Outdoor Hub Jess McGlothlin sees her mission as a simple one: tell stories. Working as a freelance photographer and writer, while on assignment in the past few years she’s learned how to throw spears at coconuts in French Polynesia, dodge saltwater crocodiles in Cuba, stand-up paddleboard down Amazon tributaries and eat all manner of unidentifiable food. Jess is available for contract, editorial, and assignment work, and is currently based in Bozeman, Montana.
