I was really excited when I was asked to take publicity photos for the original play Oscar: A Good Man. The play, written by Derek Stonebarger, is a tribute to Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and follows him during his life. Goodman, who used to work as a lawyer for members of organized crime including Anthony Spilotro, will soon reach the end of his term as mayor. His wife Carolyn is running to replace him in what is shaping up to be a close race against Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani. The play is currently running at Theater 7 in Las Vegas.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
