He’s an up-and-coming photographer with talent.

I know Kevin from the rock climbing gym here in Hawaii. Over the past few months Kevin has been building his photography portfolio. Much of it involved shooting photos of our rock climbing friends in Hawaii. Kevin doesn’t only shoot rock climbers though. His passion is photographing people in all types of environments. Kevin just launched his website and you can see his breadth of work there.

In this post, it’s my privilege to share a selection of Kevin Ford’s photos with you.
