Magic Johnson.
Los Angeles, Los Angeles magazine.

Magic was one of the most genuinely larger-than-life characters I have ever met or photographed.
He was all that and more; his ability to connect openly and positively with people around him was extraordinary.
I knew that had to be conveyed through the camera and spent the entire shoot intentionally joking and laughing, trying to get that connection.
I remember telling him about a deal I made with an excellent English bespoke tailor house that I would get a free suit in return for the shoot fee.
He laughed and said he would give me a business lesson: “Next time, get the suit and the money!”
