Also out this month is a really exciting story for GQ on Resistance Pro Wrestling, an independent professional wrestling promotion that Billy Corgan (of Smashing Pumpkins fame) is involved in. It was my first time shooting for GQ, and the Pumpkins were my favorite band when I was about 15, so this was a big deal for me before you even factor in the extremely rich subject matter.
Here is the Peter Berg story as it ran in the NY Times Magazine a couple of weeks ago….I’m finally getting a chance to catch up on the tearsheets I missed while I was in Switzerland.
I had a lot of shots planned for the shoot, which took place in Berg’s boxing gym. As soon as I saw these pads I knew I wanted to use them in a shot, and this was one of those serendipitous moments that just happen when you’re trying things out. I love the way it ran.
I’ll be in Europe July 29th through August 21st.
Keep me in mind for stories in Switzerland, France, Italy, and beyond.
