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.
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!!!
Cy Cyr is a commercial and editorial photographer based in Florida. Contact him for your next project.
Special thanks to Holly from MyFox Orlando, who put on THE sports bra and pants and struck a pose! Thanks HOLLY!!!!
