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.
