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.
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 […]
There is nothing I like more than moments like this. #peace, #joy, #adventure, #lifestylephotographer
I love being part of a team, especially a creative team. This shoot from way back was a great experience. I loved the concept and tag lines. The hard work was mostly in logistics and production. We handled all production in house. From location scouting of four locations in South Florida; shipping, receiving and transport of branded merchandise; securing all necessary props, crew and permits. Photography of all elements took place over a period of two days. It all went off without a hitch. I love the final ad campaign which resulted in a Best of Show Addy Award for Consumer/Trade Campaign Color. Client: Sunbrella […]
