Back in July I was assigned by Sports Illustrated to photograph former NFL player Wade Davis for the article, "Gay in the NFL." I wasn't given a whole lot of direction other than to "make a beautiful portrait."
I met Wade in Astor Place in Downtown Manhattan at the end of the day when the light is beautiful and golden. I was glad when Wade arrived a stylishly attired and willing subject. The published photo was highly cropped to fit layout, so I'm happy to be able to show my favorite images from the shoot here.
