Paulina Gretzky Cover Spoof

WOW.  A silly little photo shoot turned into something bigger than we all expected.  Thanks to (in order) Paulina Gretzky (photo by Walter Iooss) and Big Joe Ellicott, Casey Bourque, Jesse Dunbar,  my brother Jeff Cyr,  Ninja Federico Celano,  Ernie Fairles, neighbor Bill Canavan and Mike Wieland!

I’d like to think that Big Joe Ellicott and Bill Canavan are some of the nations top models right now.  They’re being called by the biggest ad agencies, companies and modeling agencies in the world.  You’ll most likely see them in upcoming advertising campaigns for pants, sports bras, Gillette razors and Adidas shoes.

Here’s the original blog post.

Thanks for Golf Channel for producing this amazing video!

Thanks to Walter Iooss, my photography idol and legend who photographed Ms. Gretzky for the cover of Golf Digest.  I’ve assisted Walter dozens of times throughout the years and appreciate all the lessons.   Walter has photographed the top international models in the last 40 years… and I failed miserably to follow in his footsteps.

We’d like to thank all our families and people enjoying this ride with us on social media.  It’s great hearing from so many people!   It all started with you.  Three of us in the photo are originally from Biddeford, Maine.  If you haven’t checked out the southern Maine coast, you should!

We’ll be rooting for Dustin Johnson to win The Masters!!!

Special thanks to Holly from MyFox Orlando, who put on THE sports bra and pants and struck a pose!  Thanks HOLLY!!!!

Photographer Walter Iooss is my photography idol.   His recent Paulina Gretzky golf cover sparked nationwide interest in Golf Digest this week.  And well… I have a sense of humor and called a few friends.

I’d like to thank:

“Big Joe” Ellicott, an Orlando sports radio host and owner of Uncle Joe’s Coin shop in Orlando.  You can listen to Joe every morning on the CBS 810 APP!  Follow him on Twitter!

Casey Bourque, my buddy since the age of 5, when we played hockey together in Biddeford, Maine.  He played in the 2004 US Open at Shinnecock.  Oh, and he won the Maine Amateur in 1995.  Follow him on Twitter and check out his Orlando web design business.

Jesse Dunbar, an Orlando realtor that dropped by before his men’s hockey game. Follow him on Twitter.

Jeff Cyr, my brother.  He’s a flight instructor and will get plucked up by the airlines within the next year… unless they see this.  This is not his flight uniform.  He’s not on Twitter or Facebook.

Federico.   I don’t know him.  He’s a ninja.

Ernie Fairles, originally from Canada, and a golf instructor.  Ernie plays the drums and enjoys showing his fiancé jiu jitsu moves.

Bill Canavan, my neighbor and second father.  He served our country and has installed conveyor systems around the world.

Mike Wieland, who works for a golf company in town.

Then there’s me…  Follow me on Instagram or Twitter or Facebook.  I photograph a lot of golf.   I’d like to work on your next ad campaign!

Hey Paulina, DJ and Mr. Gretzky, need a fourth?  Maybe we can shoot some photos before the round!  :)

And thanks to my sports agency buddy Ryan Totka, for being a website guru!
