Everyone’s heard of the stories where the protagonist starts off a broke chump and then overcomes adversities to become someone widely successful and great right? Well Lewis Howes embodies that! When I first started listening to podcasts [Podcasts to Listen To] Lewis’ show, School of Greatness, was one of the first that I became a loyal listener to.
Lewis is a pro athlete turned lifestyle entrepreneur. The gist of his story is that he didn’t fit in growing up, but then discovered sports and had aspirations to play in the NFL and eventually in the Olympics. Unfortunately life happens and he got a wrist injury that left him out of commission and broke. Out of all that Lewis not only found a crawl to build a multi-million dollar career he also shares stories and helps others discover their greatness through his podcast.

Photographing Lewis was a rewarding experience for me. There’s nothing better than being able to photograph people who you have genuine admiration for. He shared his story with the NextShark team and proceeded to shoot photographs in office and LA neighborhood.
For the camera nerds reading this, here’s what I photographed Lewis with. Everything shot inside Lewis’ office studio was lit by bouncing a Einstein 640 off the ceiling.
