Great pic and great guy. I met him at an event locally and he was eager to answer my questions and BS with me.
Icons of Cigars™ — Matt Booth
This is the last of the Icons of Cigars™ portraits I was able to shoot at the IPCPR Show in Vegas this year…
I was a bit surprised when I met Matt Booth in person for the first time. Considering his “Media Image,” I expected a stuck up ego maniac. What I met instead was a down to earth, easy to talk to, and passionate individual who knows cigars forwards and backwards.
We were at a private get together, and Matt graciously allowed me about five minutes to photograph him. I decided to go simple, and let the background (i.e. the Vegas Strip) do the hard part.
I wanted to show a slightly different side of Matt then what you see in the advertisements, a solitary figure enjoying a cigar…
(For those of you who care about that kind of thing, this photo was take using all natural light… ISO 800 at f1.4, 24mm and 100/th sec, Canon Mark III body.)
