Amendola Family Cigars | Cigars and Ink
After working with Amendola Family Cigars for a few years at weddings and events. The owner, Jeff, being a big tattoo enthusiast and obviously a cigar lover, wanted to do a portrait series with people with “ink” and smoking cigars. I considered this a passion project for the company and wanted to give to make sure the images were second to none. But with any shoot it may sound easy on the outset but execution is another story. Finding just the right locations, people with tattoos and the ability to smoke a cigar. We shot in tobacco fields, junk yards, a brewery, and even the Eno river. These are some of the highlights from the series.
