New SUPERMEN Spreads for Fall 2018.

It’s always an honor to photograph the annual SUPERMEN winners from the Gulf Coast for Naples Illustrated Magazine. Each and every one of them are distinguished gentlemen and philanthropists. This is my 6th year shooting this spread and cover and every year get’s a little more interesting. It’s always a challenge to shoot in dark spaces and it’s a rarity that I’m shooting in dark spaces that aren’t exterior shots but a casino will definitely take the cake for unusually lit but unlit venues. I was grateful for the help of many of the staff of the Seminole Immokalee Casino to help this shoot become a success. Thank you to my Assistants Eric Bandin and Natalie Leah, Teri Evans the Editor and Chief of Naples Illustrated, Saks Fifth Avenue for Wardrobe, styling by Alexander Hayes, art direction by Olga Gustine and Jenny Fernandez-Prieto. An amazing team. Here is the result of the teams collaboration.
