Kevin works and plays hard, yet he is completely dedicated to making sure that his son gets the most out of his life. I don't know how Kevin does it all, I have a hard enough time just taking care of myself.
On our surfing excursions Kevin has shared a lot of stories on the scouting trips he's done with Spencer, hence the idea for this shoot. I have lots of ideas for photographs, yet due to impracticality very few result in photographs. And of those that make it on film or pixels rarely do they end up like imagined. However this photograph of Spencer and Kevin turned out exactly how I envisioned it. Before the day of the shoot I knew where and when I wanted to make the photograph. I knew exactly what camera, lens, film, and light source I wanted to use to make the photograph. I had even imagined the mood and expressions. When we arrived at the location all the elements came perfectly together, and I knew I had a great photograph when I made it.
I am very proud of this image, but not because of its quality. It's dear to me because of its humanity.
