Photographing Michelle Wie for Sports Illustrated

Photographed LPGA star Michelle Wie for Sports Illustrated a few weeks back, impeccable timing as she won her first major, the US Women’s Open on Sunday.
Beautiful display in the magazine and wonderfully written by Alan Shipnuck. Thanks to Christine Sonnenberg, Milena Devincenzo, James Biscardi, Irene Ferdinand, Mike Rado, Christopher Crumb. Great editing by Miriam Marseu. We built a wall out of 100 of Michelle’s instagram photos to use as a backdrop.

Matt Fitzpatrick for Golf Magazine

Flew up to Atlanta to photograph Matt Fitzpatrick, U.S. Amateur Golf champion Matt Fitzpatrick for Golf Magazine. Storm clouds in the morning made for some nice mood. Got to play in the Masters at 19 years old!

Bubba Watson for Sports Illustrated

Great day with Masters champ Bubba Watson when he returned home to tiny Bagdad, FL to give back to his town. The day was filled with emotional moments as he stopped by all three of his schools to give a donation and talk with the kids. What a class guy and he’s got a hell of a pitching arm.
Thanks to Director of Photography Brad Smith and Picture Editor Miriam Marseu.

PGA star Jason Day for Sports Illustrated

Kevin Spacey for Propellor Films and WBK Bank Poland

Had the honor of photographing two time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey in New York for WBK Bank Poland’s worldwide ad campaign. This is our third body of work for them, including actors John Cleese and Antonio Banderas. Kevin was a sweetheart to work with and one of my all time favorite actors. Shot at the beautiful Steiner Studios in Brooklyn.

Kevin and agency/clients look over the take.

Milena finds new friends in Times Square after we wrapped.

Great time photographing 4 of the Most Beautiful Women in Golf for Golf Magazine. Here is Beatriz Recari from the LPGA…enjoy!

Visit Orlando – Change Your World TV spot

Directed and produced this :30 broadcast spot for Visit Orlando with our friends at PUSH advertising agency. It is airing in the UK now. The Orlando Sentinel wrote a front page story about the production today. Found the London cab up in Charleston, SC and had it trucked down here. First we had to have the
alternator replaced (it wouldn’t start), then we replaced the passenger side window when someone smashed it out while we filmed in downtown Orlando making it double as downtown London. Loved our talent we found. Great crew overall. A few behind the scenes pix..

Boys and Girls Club fundraiser spot

Directed and produced this :30 broadcast spot to benefit The Boys and Girls Club of New Hampshire. Shot on location at The New Hampshire Motor Speedway for Laconia Harley-Davidson client.

Sports Illustrated Golf+ cover with Ian Poulter

Had a great shoot with the fashion forward PGA star Ian Poulter for the cover of Sports Illustrated Golf+. Sports Illustrated challenged me to come up with a cover concept for this one, and as I thought about Ian and his love of fashion it struck me that his golf game and his life is framed by the passion he has for clothes and design. Why not photograph him in an actual frame to represent this idea? The magazine and Ian loved it. We shopped for antique frames with a lot of character to play off his polished look. I brought in Yolonda Winters for hair and make-up and Christine Sonnenberg for wardrobe. Yolonda and Christine are part of our production team we usually use when shooting motion commercial work. My friend Gary ‘Razor’ Bogdon was assigned to shoot the documentary day in the life story on Ian as well as behind the scenes video. He also shot the beautiful opener for the story. Thanks to my great crew, Milena DeVincenzo, Ricky Fontenez, Miguel Valdes. Written by Alan Shipnuck, Picture Editor Miriam Marseu.

New Harley Davidson spots

Directed some new spots for long time client Orlando Harley Davidson. These were unscripted, from the heart, testimonials by team members who work there. John Atkinson, DP, edited by Adam Showen. They are airing in Florida now. We head up to New Hampshire in June to shoot some more.
