Sam was a true delight to work with one Saturday earlier this year. He really is a fireman and came to the photo shoot with all of his gear. He left the ax in his car. He was concerned that people would see him walking down a busy street in downtown Washington, DC carrying an ax and would get a little upset, so we worked with the helmut and the other gear. In it or out of it, he was hot and friendly and a joy to work with. He was so expressive.
