Another Opportunity

I was on my way to an assignment for Vero Beach Portfolio Magazine. Wanted to get there early to watch the magic happen as the light starts to shine on the waterfront. Beautiful light! I could tell it was going to be an awesome day! Another opportunity to be creative, meet new people and help tell their stories. My Mantra – Present moment beautiful moment. Hope everyone is riding these crazy waves going on in our country with optimism, hope and determination to make things better. ✌🏼out.

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 […]

Bella’s First Modeling Assignment

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

Leveraging Authenticity

Trying something new. It’s what drives the hospitality industry. Being hospitable by nature, I appreciate the small details and nuances that are intended to pamper and delight. It is essential that these images be authentic and real. I want to encourage viewers to explore what life has to offer, to try new things and to seek and appreciate the moments of bliss in their lives. I think that is what hospitality photography is all about. Present moment, beautiful moment. Images : Cunard, The Biltmore Hotel, Tanzy Restaurant

Dreaming. Creating. Never quitting. Doing, doing and doing the right thing with no attachment to an outcome. Day after day. Unwavering commitment to quality. That’s what many small businesses are about. Like mine (escardaphoto.com) and like the people at the #Fiddlershop. Fedex Small Business Grant Contest Award Winners 2018.

Technology a Threat To Professional Photographers?

I keep reading about how technologies like mirrorless cameras and phones will change the landscape or even eliminate the role of many in creative fields like photography. They say anyone can take high quality photos with these new devices…I say BALONEY! Because it always has been, and always will be, about how one sees. It’s about intentions and goals and connecting with target audiences in a way that is meaningful. In ways that help people in some way…to live, play and engage. The following are some Iphone pics of a night out at #losaltosspeakeasy @billfuller @zackbush ENJOY! Maybe check the […]

Sharing Is Caring

As a photographer not a week goes by without friends, family and/or clients asking, ‘Can you photograph my kids, my family, my dog, so and so’s wedding?’, etc. Lol! I often want to say, ‘Yes!’, but I can’t! I am one person focusing on commercial photography and raising children. It seems my hours and minutes are always accounted for. Yet, when I do this kind of work, I love it!  These photos were part of an auction for my girls school. A worthy cause. The Wallace family purchased my photo package, an afternoon with me and a photo book. Here […]

Sold My Car Yesterday….

I was amazed at the emotional connection and feelings of love, joy and deep gratitude I felt as I walked away from it. Thoughts of drives to and from with my girls knowing they were growing and different each time they got in and out. All the photo shoots with my car loaded with gear, allowing me to be creative and earn a living. Often standing on top of it as a platform for me and my tripod. I thought of many good times jamming to loud music with family, friends and especially my girls. The lectures. The laughter. Holding […]
