Here are some recent photos of Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval for the Wall Street Journal. I photographed Sandoval to illustrate a story about how he is trying to push through traditionally Democratic priorities while facing pressure from national Republicans to make a bid for the U.S. Senate seat now opened by retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. I met him at several public events he was attending through the day.
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.
