"For his first cover shoot with Watch!, we took Chris O'Donnell to Ireland. Ashford Castle was the location and the whole crew was blown away by its beauty. The NCIS: Los Angeles star got those waders on and paddled our photographer Cliff Lipson into the middle of the lake to get this shot!" — Christopher Ross, Director of Photography

"Each year we get one shot of photographing our stars before the new TV season starts. It's pretty much a fire drill! Fast-paced photography on the red carpet that's over before you know it. And then walked in Renée Felice-Smith to our TCA photo booth in this amazing Bohemian look that made time stop. So poised, sweet and confident. Beautiful!" — Ed Mann, Creative Director

"This shot cracks me up. At the last minute there was a scheduling conflict and we could no longer shoot LL COOL J and Chris O'Donnell on the same day. What you see here is a cool composite after two days of shooting each actor separately—luckily both at the Peninsula Beverly Hills. Talk about teamwork!" — Christopher Ross, Director of Photography
