I always like traveling, so I was pretty excited when the Guardian Newspaper contacted me to shoot some photos of a five day road trip from Las Vegas to Denver. The assignment was to shoot Instagram photos for a live blog written by Marcel Theroux. Musician Andy Maclure also came along for additional support. It was alot of fun doing the live blog, but shooting photos with a cell phone could be a little frustrating.
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.
