January has been a busy month, from going to Vegas,  Hawaii, Mammoth, and now Phoenix for a cover shoot for Golf Monthly UK. The #3 golfer in the world Martin Kaymer of Germany was the subject and this guy is not only legit (PGA Champion 2010, Dubai Champion 2010, Ryder Cup Team 2010) but he was as cool as the other side of the pillow. He was a pleasure to work with and the magazine editor was thrilled with the shots we got for the cover and the feature. Below is a little teaser slideshow for you…enjoy!

Paula Finlay Cover Shoot

If you don’t know who Paula Finlay is (I didn’t until I had the assignment to shoot her for the cover of LAVA) come next summer’s 2012 London Olympic Games, you probably will. The 21-year old Canadian Triathlon prodigy is the forerunner to win the Olympics next year, coming out of anonymity until a breakout year in 2010, winning five races and two back-to-back on the ITU circuit. I spent a couple days with Paula and the LAVA writer/editor Jennifer Ward in the beautiful Maui, and we made the best of being stuck in paradise and came away with a nice mix of images. Below are some of my favorites from the shoot, enjoy and as always your feedback is appreciated!
