I was honored to be invited by Pirelli to go down to Rio De Janiero ,Brasil for their 2013 Calendar release shot by Steve McCurry. During the day i went to the press event. The calendar was all shot in Rio De Janiero ,Brasil with models, actresses and singers including Isabeli Fontana, Karlie Kloss, Petra Nemcova, Elisa Sednaoui and a pregnant Adriana Lima. The Models used all have their own charities. Later that night , i went to the dinner and after party. It was hosted the Pirelli President Marco Tronchetti Provera and Brazilian actor Rodrigo Santoro. Surprise guest Sophia Loren, also unexpected guest L.A. Mayor Villagrosa,Owen Wilson and former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva were in attendance. It was one of the better dinner and parties i have ever been too. I wasn't planning on shooting anything at the event, but i had my camera with me in Brasil anyway so i decided i might as well shoot a few photos and some film, to give everyone back home a little taste of what a great expirience it was.
