I had the pleasure of spending a little time with this amazing guy last night. He wanted photos for some future book projects and marketing efforts, so we met in Boise for a casual shoot. I’m not sure if Boise draws certain people, but I’ve found one thing in particular that I love about Boise residents. Many of the people I meet are incredibly inspiring and successful in their field, and you would have no idea while you’re around them. They may have every right to a large ego over what they’ve accomplished or the positions they’ve held, and yet they remain down-to-earth, humble, friendly people. Jason is a great example of this.
