Of boyhood dreams and play

Recently I had the opportunity to photograph little boys playing in different roles such as the armed forces, cowboys, fly-fisherman, civil war veterans, and just good ole kids playing with scooters built out of peach boxes.  This I would have to say ranks as one of my all time favorite projects.  I was able to play too, heck I even sang to get the boys going (yes I sing as well).  This project was photographed for a friend of mine starting a new company called “JM Cremps”.  The primary focus of this company will be on the young, crazy boys of our world who need to dream, get out and move and put down the electronics and go conquer a hill somewhere.  To this end enjoy, and YeeHaw!
