Hey, I Shot That!

maddux-cover.jpg

Through a curious chain of events, I recently had the opportunity to shoot this El Sol Nicaraguan Primeros Reserve Maduro for a local business journal. Having never shot for real publication before, I’m amused as hell. Aside from that, the El Sol is an excellent smoke, as is the Ybor City-made La Herencia de Cuba White Label featured in the interior spread.

I have always enjoyed your photos of cigars, they are worth having an Expo done, so ,that way all cigar aficionados can appreciate your
artistic views. Great job.

Very kind of you to say, Guy. Maybe one of these days I’ll learn to shoot something that moves!

Very nice Kevin. Congrats! You’ll have cigar industry folks looking to hire you for their catalogs before long…. ;)

Many thanks, guys. That probably wouldn’t be a bad gig, Matt. My understanding is that food and small product photographers do pretty well because no one wants to do it. Everyone wants to be a street or sports shooter, and no one has the patience to sit and light tabletop objects all day.

Nice job Kevin!! I am one of those photogs who can’t do small product shoots due to patience. I really enjoy looking at it though!

Thanks, Jeremy!

For those who don’t know, Jeremy is a REAL photographer. He’s shot some amazing stuff, some of which you can see here: http://www.danagrantphotography.com/

Hey Kevin.

I was wondering the same thing as Guy. I hope everything is ok and that you are just out taking lots of great pictures that you can share with us when you get back to posting. ;)
