Buffalo Sabres goalie, Ryan Miller, transitioned from behind the mask to behind the camera lens as he recently played the role of fashion photographer for VanityFair.com. The hockey hunk, who actually took up photography several years ago, shot a pictorial at NYC's Hudson Hotel featuring friends and fellow N.H.L. stars Henrik Lundqvist (New York Rangers goalie), Patrice Bergeron (Boston Bruins center), Michael Cammalleri (Montreal Canadiens forward), Steven Stamkos (Tampa Bay Lightening center) and Drew Doughty (Los Angeles Kings defenseman).
The VanityFair.com web exclusive showcased the guys in a mix of luxury and casual fashions, as John Varvatos suits were paired with charitable ties and tees. As if the eye candy wasn’t enough, the shoot was also meant to draw attention to October's Hockey Fights Cancer Month. To support the cause, the five featured N.H.L. players showcase the lavender ties and t-shirts that coaches, broadcasters and team reps will wear throughout October.
When Miller's hockey days are over, it's safe to say he definitely has a career in photography. But how did the other guys feel about playing the role of fashion model?
Montreal Canadiens forward Michael Cammalleri said, “I am used to shooting on him [Miller]. To have one of the best goaltenders in the world taking pictures of me on a rooftop in New York is pretty cool.”
