Like many, if not all, other photographers, I enjoy the the vast amount of avenues in our medium. Be it photojournalism, table top, macro, etc., I really appreciate what so many other photographers do, and celebrate their successes as much as my own.
I will admit right now, every time I write a title like this or the Nikon, or Maurice Lacroix ambassador one, I sit back and think…. “you know, people are going to stop asking me to grab a beer with them if I keep this stuff up.”
I sat at a bar in Las Vegas with Sandro Reginelli, lead designer of Maurice Lacroix. We had just had the watch conversation to end all watch conversations, and decided to celebrate it over a glass of scotch.
This job has been a door that continually opens to opportunities that I don’t deserve, but will always be grateful for. One such opportunity presented itself when I showed interest in Movember. I was talking with the marketing team at Maurice Lacroix, and they told me that they were thinking of partnering with Movember this year, and if they did, wondered if I had interest in photographing the CEO of Movember, Adam Garone. … Now this is a situation that scares me sometimes. You see, Adam is, by all research I had done, a cool guy that down to his core is a damn good person. I often worry about this because photoshoots often show me the real person that is my subject and sometimes they are product of great PR, and not so much character. However, I can proudly say that Adam is the real deal, a legit guy that everyone should have a beer with… especially the thousands of men who’s lives have benefited by his cause, Movember. Beyond the photoshoot, he and I did video interviews (of which you will see soon) to talk about both Maurice Lacroix watches and what Movember meant to us. On camera […]
When Maurice Lacroix asked me to captain their Movember team I was esthetic, after all they make the watch I would wear if I could only wear one. However, they then told me that as a part of their Movember team they were going to give away a watch to the person that raised the most money on my team… suddenly I realized that as team captain I am excluded. ….. But it’s for a good cause, right? So here is the watch in all her glory: It is a Maurice Lacroix Pontos S in orange and special editioned with the Movember logo and limited number on the side (our’s is 7 of 11). I could go on and on about how many moving parts it has inside and what functions it has, but just look at this thing…. damn sexy. Also should be noted that I am holding the watch for the month of Movember to give to the winner, so if there is a photo or two of me wearing it, I know nothing about it (but I do promise to clean the saliva from it before delivery). Ok, so how do you make this one yours?… Go […]
First of all, Happy Halloween! Go out and have a good ole time dressed as a naughty nurse, naughty secretary, naughty doctor, naughty librarian, naughty paleoclimatologist, naughty executive assistant, yadda yadda yadda (a naughty yadda that is). But be safe. For those who have not joined my Movember team, GET ON IT ALREADY! For those already on my team and growing the mo, tomorrow is Shave the Date, so get your best razor out and start clean. Also, it would be a good idea to take your significant other on a date before than mustache gets too big and she starts recommending that you cook at home a little more often. A random blog? Yes. So periodically I get photos of my work on display that friends send over, and for that I am grateful. The most recent one comes from a photoshoot I did with Chicago Bears player Matt Forte. Perhaps the easiest going guy on set ever. We photographed him in New York at Milk Studios during a day that saw multiple athletes in and out of the studio. What made Matt so cool was that he was the first athlete of the day and one of the […]
