Anatomy of a D Magazine Cover Shoot

Womack

On the right, you see our June cover, photographed by the great Scott Womack at Lake Cypress Springs. Two things that are fun to know: 1) The model in the bikini, Alex, had an ear infection (apologies to those folks who get our newsletter, in which I said she had a migraine; always a good idea to fact check). Her doctor told Alex to stay away from water. For our shoot, she jumped off that dock about 30 times. 2) The photo on the left was a test shot taken several days before the actual cover shoot. That’s Scott and his wife. With his camera on a timer, Scott needed 10 jumps to get the timing right. When I saw the image, I told our creative director, Todd Johnson, “Hell, let’s just use that image. Save the money on the models.” Todd wouldn’t hear of it.

So to the folks in our accounting office upstairs: I tried to save money, really. If we go over budget this month, it’s Todd’s fault.

And to Scott: I think you’re totally hot, dude. Todd, though, he likes models.
