Recently Time Magazine posted on Time Lightbox their picks for best magazine covers of 2012. It’s a great mix of US and international publications – some I’ve seen and others I have not. The best part is the commentary from both the photographer and the magazine.
The latest magazine issue of the National Society of Hispanic MBAs hit the news stands this week and features six images I took of Liliana Gil (including one on the cover). We had about an hour with her – not bad for a magazine shoot. Liliana has quite a resume: co-founder of XL Alliance (a marketing and strategy firm in NYC), host of last year’s Miss Dominican Republic US pageant, covered the Grammy Awards for Fox News and also red carpet coverage for the People’s Choice Awards. She’s also a correspondent to CNN, MSNBC and Fox News Latino on marketing issues. And she was named one of the top Young Global Leaders by the World Economic Forum. It was a great hour of shooting. Liliana and her staff were a pleasureto work with!
For those of you who love sports, Sports Illustrated has just published a new book of all their magazine covers (read the story here). It is a a 208-page collection of more than 2,500 color photographs covering the last 55 years.
Does this mean the “cover curse” lives on?
I have some new stock images in my archive. I’m trying to shoot more B&W. Not that I think there is a trend or more of a need, just that it’s more of a throw-back for me to the good ole days. Kind of miss the smell of fixer and those long, dark days spent with the enlarger.
Both of these were shot on film then scanned.
