Commercial photographer Blair Bunting is best known for capturing images of professional athletes like Mike Tyson, Darrelle Revis and Discovery Channel personalities from Myth Busters and Deadliest Catch. Recently he invited the crew from Fstoppers to Loft 19 Studios in Arizona to document his techniques in shooting his sexiest subject yet: one of the first Lamborghini Aventadors to ship to North America.
