Missouri Editorial Photography | Products & Environmental Group Portrait
We've shot a lot of magazine covers over the years, but this is actually the first month I can remember that we had two covers being published in the same month. How cool, and definitely deserving of a spot on our blog roll. The May cover theme is definitely all about things MANLY!
It doesn’t get more manly than a pristine glass of world class Congac and a nice cigar! That’s precisely the scene we explored during our photo shoot for the May issue cover story. (Top Photo:)
Shooting the glass of Kelt X.O. Tour du Monde Grande Champagne Cognac on location seemed like the logical thing to do, given the fact we were working in the beautiful Grand Café downtown JC. Right off the bat we ran into issues with lots of unwanted reflections in our brandy glass, so we quickly shifted gears and decided to shoot our image in two parts. Part one: Our background was captured on location at Grand Café | Part two: Our brandy glass, cigar, and ashtray were shot in the studio to help minimize those nasty reflections. We then composited our two photos together to get the very best of both worlds. How manly is that?!?
(Bottom Photo:) We were commissioned to photograph Coach Gary Pinkel, head coach of the Missouri Tigers Football, and his graduating senior class of 2014. We had a great time at this very brief, highly publicized photo shoot, and coach Pinkel couldn't have been more gracious. All the athletes were top notch, and accommodating and we came away with a great cover shot for L.O. Profile Magazine. What a great month!
