I love to photograph people showcasing their environment and their interests. It is so much more fulfilling than just a "Headshot" and means much more to their families. Mr. Hays has a variety of things that peak his interest. Everything from Civil War memorabilia to fishing. He also owns a really awesome Harley Davidson motorcycle. It was obvious he has a deep love for his wife and family. I wanted to capture a bit of his unique character by including a few of his passions in this photo. I had asked him to change into a dark shirt and blue jeans, and he surprised me with a "Doo-Rag. I love it, and I bet his family will also!
