Portraits with Spencer West, Motivational Speaker

This is Spencer West. Spence has been a close friend of mine for over a decade. He’s one of the funniest, stylish, humble, and deeply compassionate people I’ve ever met. And, he’s handsome AF.

I helped Spence work on his autobiography many years ago, the bestseller, Standing Tall: My Journey. Every step of the process of learning about, and becoming friends with, Spence, made me admire him more. The dude climbed Mount Kilimanjaro on his hands, say no more! But, more than this, Spencer is a guiding light. He has inspired countless youth with his story all around the world. And has now amassed more than 3.7 million TikTok followers after going viral more than once. He’s now a teacher with @tiktok’s Creatorclass. Unreal.

Here are some shots Spence and I took in the studio recently. This is something I’ve wanted to do with @spencer2thewest for a while now, and when he reached out, I was deeply honoured.

Love you buddy. Go little rockstar!
