Here is and assignment I shot for Golf Magazine of professional poker players Phil Hellmuth Jr., Layne Flack, Erick Lindgren, and Gavin Smith. The article talks about how the four play in high stakes golf games and gamble around $10,000 a hole. It turned out to be a pretty difficult photo to make, as it took about four days to finally wrangle everyone together for the shoot. It was a weekend filled with very angry network television bosses, drunken PR people, an arrest and several no shows. I was happy escape with my sanity and the magazine seemed to be happy that I was able to get a photo all four 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.
