Last night I had the opportunity to shoot some night aerial photos of the MGM Mirage CityCenter. Here are some of the photos along with some recent clips. The $8.5 billion CityCenter will be having its grand opening tomorrow and promises to create 12,000 new jobs. This is definitely a good thing for Las Vegas where unemployment is currently over 13%. The new mega hotel, shopping, residential and gaming complex has certainly stimulated my economy in the last year with around 15 assignments from various organizations
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.
