SOME MAY call him the luckiest man alive. macari-t1We call him James Macari the photographer of the 2014 SI Swimsuit Issue cover. The 39-year-old Texas native has been working with Swimsuit since our 2012 issue, and it's worth noting that not only did he snap the Nina Agdal-Lily Aldridge-Chrissy Teigen shot heard 'round the world, he is also responsible for that steamy Kate Upton masterpiece on the back of the mag, AND the much-discussed "Kate Versus Gravity" spread.

In the below video, shot during Miami Launch Week, James "You Lucky Dog, You" Macari describes the experience of capturing that Moment .  Spoiler alert: it was a good experience.
