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.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
