I met Teodora Katelieva in 2007. Someone referred me to ‘the best trainer’ in the world. It’s been a long time and she’s still my ‘trainer’. She has a great sense of humor, but takes her job seriously. Her no bullshit theology keeps me grounded and connected to my own power and strength. Covid came, and without skipping a beat, she’s finding ways to take care of business and continue serving her clients. No self pity, no complaining. Onward. Here she is showing me one of her new tools. I could write a book about the lessons she’s helped me […]
Recently, I was on assignment for TriRail. One of our objectives was to shoot the platforms at peak times to illustrate the volume and different types of riders using the train. The week after I finished this work, things changed. It still seems so surreal to me….the things that are becoming normal now. Public transportation is one of the best places to witness and feel these new norms. Caution. Fear. Optimism. Most important, the innate desire people have to carrying on, despite. I wanted to explore this new phenomenon using some images from this project in a different way.
Currently, it seems that it is in everyones best interest to nurture creative impulses, regardless of one’s job or personal situation. Great time to discover unimagined opportunities for creativity and service in every aspect of life. At last I have time for ongoing project, #PresentMomentBeautifulMoment, a photographic #botanicalstudy exploring #presence. Each image is produced by interacting with the natural environment. Through presence botanical items emerge. I interact with them by using a black cloth to separate them from their environment. After isolating and photographing the plant or tree or flower on location, I continue the process in post production. It’s […]
It’s such a blessing to have clients that really appreciate and support the arts. Not only do artists bring creativity, inspiration, joy and the ability to unite us in a common experience. They are also a link between art and commerce. We are all richer because of creative people. Miami is richer because of people who support the arts.
Despite, or maybe because of 🤓the cliche, ‘the eyes are the window to the soul’, I always like photographing people with their eyes closed first. Looking inward. This inspires me. Somehow in the second when their eyes open, I usually get a glimpse, or a feeling of what was inside. It’s a knowing that’s hard to articulate and it always connects me to the person/divine/me. Then I can do my job.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! My thoughts on the new year are all about being creative. On every level. Creating. Building something new. Learning something new. Being someone new. Flying high. Living from the present moment untethered to past experiences. Going for it! Nailing it. Enjoying it. Celebrating the ups and the downs. Failing. Enjoying that too. Everyday is a new opportunity to create. Happy New Year!
This was Bella’s first modeling job…She was terrible! Way too self-conscious. She kept staring at the camera. Wouldn’t go along with the script at all. I was so happy to have her come to work with me anyway….#lovebug #commercialphotographer #onlocation #interiorphotography #lifestylephotography #advertisingphotography #interiors #wonderful_places #architects #spacesandplaces #miamihospitalityphotography #interiordesignphotography #ccdevco#avemaria #architecturalphotographysouthflorida #letscollaborate #hospitalityphotographer #architecturalinteriors
