50 Cent + Jake Gyllenhaal

"Southpaw" Stars for Vibe Magazine

This cover story was my first experience Creative Directing on a shoot where I was not the lead photographer.  The project was awarded pretty last minute on Memorial Day Weekend due to Jake & 50's hectic press schedule, but this was such a fun shoot once everything came together.  Those two had such a great rapport, it definitely shows in the photos.

Check out the BTS video below to witness their antics on set  (P.S. The flash flood storm warning was real!)

Photographed at Vibe Headquarters in New York City
