Portrait: Will Leitch for Illinois Alumni

June 29, 2012

New York magazine columnist and Deadspin founder Will Leitch, photographed for the University of Illinois alumni magazine:

The magazine had a few interesting requirements for this shoot: they wanted me to shoot in a sports bar, and the shots had to include a lawn gnome wearing their school colors. We shot in a few different locations, including the bar, and I made sure to give them photo options both with and without the gnome. Will was great, and in the end the client loved the pictures.

Here are a few other photos from the shoot:
