SOME MAY call himthe luckiest man alive. We 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 masterpieceon the back of the mag, AND the much-adoed "Kate Versus Gravity" feature.

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 positive experience.
