Vancouver – Research for WPP Eric Napoleon Campbell & Nuttin But Luv Club

Portrait of Eric Napoleon Campbell – Chapter President of Nuttin But Luv Club,  Vancouver 

When I come across someone who intrigues me and I want to feature them in the WPP the research and getting to know them can take some time, as they may have a life and culture that I know nothing about. I met Eric a few months ago at Trout Lake, he was with his family and their custom bikes, which are very eye catching and are inspired  by Chicano lowrider culture.  The above photo was taken at a lowrider event at Trev Deeley Motorcycles. I have been following and enjoying his photos on Instagram. Today I met him for a more formal interview and below are a few photos I took while we chatted. His life story is one of overcoming adversity and great personal change. Going forward his aim is to inspire his community (East Van) and to get kids off the streets by presenting a realistic alternative to joining gangs. He is chapter president of the Vancouver (only one in Canada) and sergeant-at-arms of the Nuttin But Luv Club, which was started in Pennsylvania, USA. In total there are 23 chapters, mostly in the USA, but  some are as far away as Germany, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and Australia.  From what I understand the Nuttin But Luv Club has a similar structure to a traditional motorcycle club but with zero tolerance for crime  or any destructive  behaviour and a very strong focus on positive attitudes.
