Very sad news today, yet I can only smile when I think of Leslie Nielsen and laugh at his countless funny movie lines all delivered with the same perfect deadpan and I’ll always smile when I think of the shoot we did for Draft Magazine. The tux was his idea. The 007 beertini was mine. It was as dry as his sense of humor. Thanks for laughs, Leslie!
My thanks to the highly entertaining Vincent Kartheiser of ‘Mad Men’ for a great portrait photography shoot today for Draft magazine. We had a lot of fun with the highly entertaining actor from one of my favorite shows. Cheers to another great season from Pete Campbell!
When actor Leslie Nielsen suggested wearing a tuxedo for a poolside cover shoot for the March 007 issue of Draft magazine, I couldn’t help but think of Connery, Sean Connery as Bond at the Fountainbleau pool in ‘Goldfinger.’ Nielsen raised his lager in a manner befitting a secret agent – the Martini Glass from my wife, the fab stylist Fazia Ali.
Days like these are what make editorial photography the best gig on the planet…
