I’m recently back from hosting a photo-theme yacht cruise in Mexico’s Sea of Cortez aboard American Safari Cruises’ 22-passenger luxury yacht, Safari Quest, where I had the pleasure of working alongside photographer Kevin Martin. Acting as expedition leader extraordinaire and ship’s photographer, Kevin, captured this powerful portrait  during a shore excursion in Puerto Agua Verde on the Baja Peninsula. From the affectionate arm around the boy’s shoulders to his soulful eyes and mud-splattered face, there isn’t anything I don’t love about this intimate image.

To see more of Kevin’s portraits and story telling photography I encourage you to visit his web site at
