We met at McCarran International Airport at the Allegiant hanger and were able to use a couple of the planes as props. The planes were a little cumbersome to move so we had to really play around with light as we ended up shooting during the brightest part of the day. The light really reflected off all the concrete at the airport so we really had to shade the subject and set the strobes to overpower the sun. I really like the way the cover turned out.
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.
