Lucky Cole, Everglades "Glamorous Photographer," Photo Shoot (VIDEO)

On a recent sunny day, our videographer Kathryn Sotolongo and I drove down to where bloated alligators are pecked on by starving vultures and sawgrass'll take off a finger if you're too handsy with it. Out on Loop Road, where the Everglades becomes Big Cypress National Preserve, Lucky Cole and his wife, Maureen, host strangers on their homestead, nourishing them with venison chili and cheap beers. They also nurture women in a less physical way. They take glamorous and sensual photographs of them in various stages of undress. Lucky clicks, and Maureen directs. The photos are great.

Through their exotic photography, they offer everyday women the opportunity to feel beautiful. I took the challenge of being one of their subjects. As Lucky shot pics and Maureen yelled, "Suck it in! Stand on your toes!" I found I liked them even more than when I interviewed them, and that's saying a lot! What follows is a video interview with the two lovebirds who are known around the world for their HGTV-ready pad, for astonishing hospitality, and for helping females feel empowered.
