Smoking always looks cool, so I am always excited to get assignments where people are smoking. I recently had the opportunity to photograph Fernando Domínguez of Imperial Tobacco. We met at the Montecristo Cigar Bar in the Mirage. During the first have of the meeting I shot his interview with the writer David Savona. During the second part we took some portraits around the bar. I used one light with a beauty dish turned all the way down so I could also get the available light.
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.
