I love these kinds of assignments…and these type of clients.  Bay Magazine is visually helmed by Bruce and Suzette Moyer up at the St. Petersburg Times, and they do an amazing job with their photo play in the high-end travel/lifestyle magazine every month.

It took about six different shoots, a few rain delays, and some farmers tan to make it happen.

Bruce and Suzette took the images and came up with a insanely clean and slick design over 8 pages which definitely made me smile when I opened.
