Last week, I posted some videos of the portrait shoot with Sam Leccia of Cain/NUb Cigars. Leccia was gracious enough to allow me a bit of time to photograph him and even Hotboxed a Cain F!, below is the final result.

I also loved this foursome of photos with different expressions during the shoot. You would be amazed how many photos I take to get just one great one.

Thanks Sam for allowing me the time!

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
