Laughing With Jeff Bezos

My portrait of Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO, recently came out in Smart Money Magazine.  Although Jeff is well known for his healthy laugh, this is not the reaction that I expected to get when I chucked his personal Kindle over the edge of the balcony.
The Amazon people were pretty antsy to get a Kindle into the pictures.  I had not been instructed to shoot the Kindle by Smart Money, but just to be safe, I did take several frames with it in.  Then, Jeff handed his Kindle to me, and hoping to get a more serious expression, I let it fly.  To my surprise, he just laughed (pictured) and said, “I’ve got a thousand more where that came from.”
Okay, so most of that is not true, including the quote.  But Jeff is a super classy guy, and he probably would have just laughed if I had actually done something that stupid.
