It goes without saying that it’s a thrill to shoot a magazine cover, but to shoot a soccer-themed cover for one of my favorite titles is a dream come true. My pal Jon Setzen (above, right) and I commissioned and photographed a trio of different World Cup trophy piñatas, exquisitely crafted by the fine folks at Amazing Piñatas in Downtown Los Angeles, and photographed them here in Los Angeles. As you can see, above, it looks fantastic and we’re excited for it to hit newsstands. The final cover was designed by Joel Speasmaker with type by Florencio Zavala and will be on newsstands nationwide very soon.
I also shot a teaser film to launch the cover, which you can watch below:
