When I set up this shoot with Amy, I was really stoked on her story alone. I had no idea that it was going to turn into a huge project that would involve other people's stories, travel, video, and many other shoots. The Inspiration Project focuses on athletes that have endured life changing events that have forced them to stand up to seemingly impossible challenges. They have prevailed when they could have given up. I wanted to do this project because these athletes inspired me and I think others will be inspired by them also.
