Paul Love and I often talk about passion and how to make dreams turn into reality. I personally believe that compelling personalities have a willingness to throw themselves into that said passion with their whole heart. It matters less what the passion is, and it matters more to simply have one and own it... and when you go full immersion, that's when the magic happens.
In Paul's case, he is an avid sports fisherman. The man literally lives and breathes the sport in a way that networks like-minded individuals via shared stories, insights & perspectives, reflecting mutual respect for one another. Through Local Water, Paul aims "to expose our sport in the truest form of passion possible" through the eyes of anyone who shares the same passion for fishing.
We met for a set of portraits in San Francisco's Pacific Heights on a cloudy day and came up with some great shots that reflect Paul's goals for Local Water. And because we're friends who laugh a lot while catching up, I also took some just-for-fun photos, even testing out a new prism with my lens on a rooftop. :) Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
