Reading comments of other people dissecting the photo one person noted that there is only a choke on one of the barrels. Either they were reloading
only the top barrel or it was just for a one and done photo op.
Also his positioning screams amateur just based on how he is standing.
The reason smoke (a lot of smoke for a shotgun btw) is coming from the side is because the gun is ported to remove some of the recoil and lessen

If the shot was strictly for a photo op, the choke would be irrelevant.
More likely, considering the "amateur" angle, the skeet are most likely close range, and the first shot would not require a choke. Or, it could be an
internal choke, or non-removable choke on the bottom barrel.
The cheek weld is fine. His triangle looks a bit weak, but strong enough to absorb recoil, properly. Remember folks, when shooting an over/under for
skeet, it's low brass, and usually a very light small game load. Plus, the shoulders, arms, and head should move as one, so recoil isn't going to slam
the shotgun into his cheek.
The amount of smoke, does seem excessive. Perhaps it's a "special" load?!
