Willie Kessel: Move, Inspire, Evoke

Growing up on a seaside avocado ranch in southern California, Willie has always been influenced by the ocean and its surroundings. Willie believes photography is highly interactive, in that he is sharing his personal lens with the world so that it may move, inspire, or evoke.
