Shamir for the New York Times

I had the pleasure of photographing Shamir for the New York Times last month. From his apartment in North Las Vegas to the pig farm he grew up down the street from. The story is here. There is definitely something special about Shamir. I’m looking forward to seeing where this talent goes from here. Here’s the tearsheet and a few outtakes.  It happened to be take your kid to work day, so I had the youngest assistant Shamir had ever met. James styled it.

Mega Fight Features for ESPN The Magazine

Everyone has had a lot to say about whether the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight lived up to expectations. For me, I spent the day on the Las Vegas Strip with tourists in town for the fight hype, most of who didn’t have tickets but they were stoked and pumping their hard earned dollars into the Las Vegas economy. A full gallery from the scene and fight action is here.

I’ll follow-up with more images after the print edition runs this week.
