Just a few days before sportscaster Jay Onrait flew off to LA to start his new career at Fox Sports 1 network hosting their flagship show Fox Sports Live we got to shoot him in my studio for his new book Anchorboy. I think we set a record for highest number of frames shot (by me) for one book cover, without even a wardrobe change. No coaxing or coaching required of this subject AT ALL. Not that I didn't try. But I probably could have just stood there and clicked the shutter and still got what we needed.
Christine Cho, my trusty make-up artist was a super sport and lent her arm, without hesitation, to the cover art. Serendipitously, there were so many great outtakes that Kristine Kwan, Jay's web designer decided to use (with permission, of course) some of them for his new site launched just last week. It's a very fun site which you can see at jayonrait.com.
Incredibly fun and stress-free shoot. Thanks to HarperCollins Canada! Look for the book in stores Nov. 5, 2013. And good luck Jay!
