Sometimes we plan to be in the right place at the right time. Like just after the sun rises and the landscape is suddenly flooded with clear golden light. That’s when I did these photos for Portofino Island Resort. No rain, lots of great light, the beauty of the location and the company of a great creative team made this film and still shoot a complete success. This could have been different though. Sometimes we find ourselves somewhere and the light (or our plans) are not optimal. That’s a good time to remember that the light is ALWAYS there. It may require a shift in thinking or a different approach or even another visit. For me it’s always worth the investment to be in the right place at the right time… Magic happens in the early morning and late afternoon. It’s the only way to make beautiful images. : )
What’s not to enjoy about this nature sanctuary and luxury resort located in Pensacola, Florida? This was a five day lifestyle film and still photo shoot. Story-telling was on our mind as we moved through the amenities and locations appreciating the good weather and each other. Our talented and passionate team created many beautiful and authentic moments. With everything from drones to underwater housings for both still and film production, we came prepared to experience this place from every angle. And to build a rich and versatile image library for everything from print advertising to social media and web use.
Lucky/blessed me…photographing amazing people from diverse careers and backgrounds. Like @KathyMarinello, CEO of Hertz Corp. for #NewRoadsMagazine.

As a photographer I have always photographed my friends and family. Unfortunately because of my busy schedule and limited time, I do this less and less. That’s why I was so happy when Sophie needed some photos for her new website, https://www.lesprittherapy.com/. I was so happy to spend this time with her. It was like ‘stopping to smell the roses’. Being in her beautiful garden among her treasured objects, I was filled with appreciation and love for this beautiful soul whose purpose it is to assist in the healing of others. I love these images of her. This has inspired in me a desire to spend time like this with all of the people I love. Stay tuned for more portraits….

What an adventure this project was. Client: Laurie Lundquist (Artist, Sky Wave Bridges) and Broward Cultural Division. I know you can appreciate how interesting it is to be at an airport with so many diverse people coming and going. Their gestures and body language speaking volumes and providing limitless opportunity for story-telling. All connected to the passing of time. It is fascinating to watch how all of this takes place in and around these large scale architectural structures at Fort Lauderdale International Airport. This airport is evolving daily and it is amazing to watch at any hour as light flows through the terminals, parking garages and run ways. Because of this project, I was able to visit the airport many times and at all hours of the day and night. Loved this mission! Thanks Christina E. Roldan, Public Art Project Manager, Broward County Cultural Division, Public Art & Design Program and Laurie Lundquist for making our public spaces more interesting and beautiful. I believe we are all elevated thru their work and the architects and developers of public spaces.
