I was recently given an editorial assignment from Outdoor Life Magazine photo editor, Justin Appenzeller, to photograph Paul Baker of 5 Star Bait. Paul runs a bait business from his boat in the pass connecting Pensacola Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. Because Paul was working on his boat and it was out of commission at the time we needed to shoot, my friend Stuart West took us out into the Gulf on his boat so we could capture our images. From the short time I spent with Paul, I gathered that he is hard working, honest and genuine. Here are the published images along with a few of my favorites below.
Here is my friend, Captain Stuart West. Stuart, thanks for helping make this shoot happen.
