Read the article: “Going Against the Grind: Talented, joyful and Dominican-proud, Manny Machado is the face of MLB’s new identity.”

 

From this week’s ESPN magazine cover story…a tip of the hat from Orioles’ third baseman Manny Machado. Behind me is the great and powerful Digital Tech, Eric Vlasic, attempting to figure out how a @profotousa 8A pack works, as auto-focus technology allows me to shoot one handed…which I don’t recommend. That’s a ballroom at the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards acting like a photo studio. That’s a 7” reflector acting like a main and an @elinchrome_ltd acting like a fill. That’s a Tom Ford jacket at right being worn by Dominican-American Señor Machado. Not pictured? Any of the three backdrops that we moved in and out to mix up the looks behind MM…and Executive Producer @luvlouella and her expanding tummy and Ryan Perkins and Jon Kuntz, ace assistants from Philadelphia who road tripped to Baltimore to help us out! Thank yous to @frankie626 and Kaitlin Marron and @nashstyled who brought the goods! #mannymachado #mlb #baltimoreorioles #baseball @orioles @profotousa @canonusa

And the result…hats off to Manny Machado of the Baltimore Orioles for being such a gentlemen and a fantastically willing subject. On a day when Machado and the Orioles faced the Minneapolis Twins, the Dominican-American, born and raised in South Florida, who ESPN is calling the new face of the MLB, found time to join us at the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards (do hotels really need six names?) for a cover shoot. Run-on sentences much? Indeed! We photographed Machado on a blue background, a silver background and this orange background wearing a variety of spectacular outfits provided by the incomparable @nashstyled. Shadows behind Machado expertly removed by @angiemariehayes! Covers to come! Thank yous to @frankie626 and Kaitlin Marron! #mannymachado #mlb #baltimoreorioles #baseball @orioles @profotousa @canonusa
