I’d worked with Sam a year before, and knew he was pretty easy going, but I also knew that like most Poker players he’s not a natural model (who is?) and is much happier being given something to do in front of camera, and a role to play, rather than being asked to simply pose.
To this end, shooting at Altostratus was a godsend. Sam was very willing to step into the role of the Bachelor in his swanky penthouse apartment, swanning about on the balcony, and lounging around on the furniture, making himself very much at home.
The venue was in superb condition, and although we were unfortunate to be shooting on a foggy day, we were still able to make use of the balcony to add even more depth and range to the shots. The finished feature looks great, and I know both the magazine and his sponsors were very happy with the results. I shall definitely be booking Altostratus again in the near future for more work.
