Pose like this ...

With so many cameras on the floor, it's tough to take a photo that's different. That's why I'll often ask my subjects to do something odd. Here's James Niggemeyer in the Strike King booth looking like he's ready to eat the new KVD 8.0 square bill crankbait. We had done a couple of shots of him just holding the bait and smiling, and they were nice but ordinary. When I said, "Look like you really want to eat it," James went into action and gave me this before he broke up laughing about a nanosecond later. He's a great sport and fun to work with. Thanks James! Remember, you can never, ever, ever look as goofy as Greg Hackney did on that one and only cover of Bass Fan magazine (2006, I think). He was dressed like a Viking. Need I say more?
