Firefighters are simply my favorite people, period. They’re real modern day heroes? In my experience of working with firefighters while photographing their stations, I am fortunate to see another side to them that transcends anything I have experienced. While most people think of firefighters as heros, giving-of-them selves, and willing to sacrifice their lives to save another. I’ll tell you, it is their character that is the firefighter’s true essence. The character that our U.S. firefighters possess is simply astounding.
