I can finally talk about this. This has been an outstanding year for me so far, filled with many successes. This moment stands out among all of the others. One of my photographs of one of my closest friends has been chosen for the cover of PENTHOUSE Magazine for their October issue.
I have been a fan of PENTHOUSE for as long as I can remember. This isn’t the first time my work has appeared in the magazine. A little more than a year ago I photographed Renee Graziano from VH1’s Mob Wives for the magazine which led to me meeting John Faraci, the art Director, who then hired me and my team to do a few more shoots for the magazine, including photographing Colin Quinn from SNL and Labretta Suede and the Motel 6.
In the past year we have become friends with not only John, but also the exectutive editor of the magazine, Barbara Rice and (former) photo reseacher Rachel Hatch.
All of the events of the past year have led now to my greatest gold star with PENTHOUSE, this cover image and featured set of my friend Sarash Hunter.
Sarah and I have been close for years and I could not be happier that my first cover for the magazine features someone I love so much.
The issue goes on sale tomorrow and should be on newsstands worldwide by next week! Please, do your best to find a copy, I couldn’t be more proud to show these photographs off!
