“At Golf Digest, one of our favorite photographers to work with is the talented and slightly unbalanced Cy Cyr” – Golf Digest, November 2014
I’m an Orlando photographer specializing in advertising and editorial portraits. I work with business people, athletes and celebrities. I have a bold and colorful style. My end goal is for the viewer to connect with the intense expressions from my subjects. Adept at working with executive teams on assignments with significant business impact and/or high confidentiality.
Biddeford, Maine is where my family calls home. Fortunately, my photography career began at some great publications: Journal Tribune in Biddeford, Maine, Bangor Daily News in Bangor, Maine and Morning Call newspaper in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
I have assisted some amazing photographers throughout my career such as Sports Illustrated legend Walter Iooss, Robert Seale and Martin Schoeller.
I love working with magazines, TV, book publishers, production companies, startups and Fortune 50 companies that inspire and allow me to do what I love to do. I have worked in dozens of U.S. states and several countries including Jamaica, Bahamas, Ireland, Switzerland, Canada, Mexico, Scotland and England.
A May 2014 Golf Digest cover photo of Paulina created a lot of controversy in the golf community and beyond. However, I saw the humor in the situation and decided to call a few friends to spoof the cover. The work quickly went viral and was picked up by USA Today, Washington Post, ESPN, Today Show, NBC, FOX, ABC, CBS, Golf Channel and dozens more across the globe.
In March 2015, Brendon Elliot at Little Linksters Association for Junior Golf Development (501c3) asked me to be on their advisory board. Brendon runs an amazing program in central Florida for young golfers. Check out their website at http://www.littlelinksters.com.
