I have always wanted to see the show Absinthe, so when Delta Airlines called me with a project that would give me an opportunity to photograph the show, I jumped at the chance. One of the things they asked me do was to shoot some slice of life shots of people walking up and down Las Vegas Blvd. It is always fun to watch all the tourists wandering around as the sun sets and the city lights go on. The later it gets the more things there are to see. People also act differently when they are walking around outside rather than being in the casino.
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.
