Phil Lacasse was released from prison three months ago after serving more than ten years for armed robbery. He was desperately looking for work but hopeful for his situation. I met him at his halfway house and he was able to sign out for 45 minutes to do the photos. We hopped into my car and drove around for a few minutes until we came to some railroad tracks. Railroad tracks are an irresistible location for photos when your time is limited. We hopped out off the car, I set up some lights, and we took the photos. It is hard to imagine how difficult it is for parolees to find work and get their life back together.
Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder. He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.
