The keeper's kin.

I recently acquired some new props, so my nephew and I ventured into a woods near the base of Mt. Baldy in Los Angeles to shoot some photos. At one point, he was hesitant to go further down the path, so I told him that the garment pictured above was a magic sweater that he could wear to make him fearless.


Needless to say, we ended up hiking in much farther than I intended, past wild animals and across fields of poison oak - and he insisted he led the way, haha. He even took my camera at one point and started shooting photos of his own.

    This is so beautifully done and brilliant dude... his expression is AMAZING! And I love how you got him to continue, I just love kids and their imaginations!

    Even before I clicked the photo it gave off the feeling of walking alone in the middle of the night, with the feeling of being watched... What a great shot, wonderfully done concept, and what an awesome kid!

    Made me think of The Birds from Hitchcock. The light, the colors, the innocence, the strength and some kind of violence. You did such an intense photo. Congrats.
