Here are some recent photos I took of Hirochi Robaina for Cigar Aficionado Magazine. Robaina is the grandson of legendary Cuban tobacco grower Alejandro Robaina and recently inherited control of Cuchillas de Barbacoa, the wrapper farm located in Cuba's prime tobacco growing region. Prior to taking control of the wrapper farm, Robaina ran San Luis y Martinez, a tobacco farm that has been in the family since 1845. He is currently traveling the US and working on new projects.
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.
