Meet my cousin Gabe! This guy is truly an inspiration. Just about to graduate high school, and without arms or legs, he has already accomplished more than what most people ever will. He has already begun his career as a motivational speaker. I am so proud to be related to him and even more flattered that he asked me to shoot for him!!

For this shoot, we specifically designed a portrait shoot out in a more remote, outdoor location. His motivational speaking is designed around the topics of excelling without limits and how he has continued to achieve his goals without arms or legs. We wanted to use a location that portrayed him outside in a location that most people wouldn't expect him to be in, so as to add a visual element to his overall message of not letting a handicap stop him from what he wants to achieve.

this is breathtaking, I think it's more than just a portrait and you really do achieved the goal and hit the target you were going for.

Give my regards to Gabe! Well done!

Overall great shot, though the eye closest to the camera is a little off focus. Phenomenal story worthy of full publication.
