  • Hallmark Graduate’s Photo Spoof Goes Viral

    Photo by Cy Cyr

    Hallmark Institute of Photography graduate Cy Cyr (Class of ’96) made the news this week after he spoofed Golf Digest’s controversial cover photo of Paulina Gretzky.  The cover came under fire from female golfers who thought that it was offensive to have a model instead of a female golfer on the cover. Cy Cyr, an Orlando-based photographer who has done work for Golf Digest, responded by shooting a group of his male friends in the same pose and outfit.

    His take on the cover went viral. The Today Show, USA Today, CBS Sports, and many other news outlets featured Cyr’s photograph. While the photograph of middle-aged men pokes fun at the Paulina Gretzky cover, Cyr has nothing but respect for the photographer who took the shot, Walter Iooss, who Cyr calls his “photography idol.”

    Since graduating from Hallmark, Cyr has made a name for himself photographing portraits of athletes, celebrities and businessmen. His work has been featured in numerous publications including Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone Magazine, and of course Golf Digest. He’s shot portraits of Shaquile O’Neal, Michael Phelps, and Mitt Romney.
