Magazines cover pages

Always good to see that our work desserves magazines' cover pages.

This one was shot with the Pentax 645 D in 2013 in the Bahamas but it is issued this month in both international and French issues…



The International issue
The "Power Cat on test" is also illustrated with my images.


On March 26 I'll be allowed to show the cover page of Yachting Magazine # 1300 with an image shot with a Pentax 645 Z in the Bahamas last February…

That's the price (I'm sure you can negociate!) for a second hand Lagoon 52, new is a bit more money!

BTW there's a typo in the length, read: 15,84 m / 52’

You may still dream while looking on Lagoon website (made by Claris Image Builder: )

For sure, LOL!

171 feet would require a brave crew to handle the sails, but could carry a Sultan's elephant too!

Very nice work Nicolas. And it is deserving to be acknowledged in this way.

I shot images for a sailboat manufacturer many many years ago --- using a handheld Hasselblad while I was hanging out the front of the motorized sailboat the company was using to chase the ship in full sail in the open waters. Interior shots of the docked sailboat were handled with my Hasselblad SWD superwide lens.

If I were doing this kind of work today (and being paid well enough for it), I would definitely be using a Digital Medium Format camera such as you are.

I think I should clarify that when I said "Poor girl. In a such expensive boat and without money for a bathing suit !" in a previous post I was joking.

Perhaps it is a bad taste joke... I am sorry.

I did´t mean to depreciate the image, neither the success of the photographer nor the cover itself. Not even the magazine.

Oh! Antonio!
I took your post for humor!
No problem at all!

Sorry, guys, for once and for a short while, my modesty vanishes…
I can’t deny myself the pleasure to read the message I received:

You’ve done an amazing job shooting the Lagoon 630 Motor Yacht. These images are some of the best I’ve worked with while at Yachting.

What an excellent job you did with this, Nicolas. You knocked it out of the park. Many thanks for the fantastic work, and a well-executed production.*

The image may be the classiest cover we’ve run.

Warm regards from Florida,
