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 […]
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.
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
As a creative it is so important to explore and play away from work. That’s why I found myself recharging my creative batteries with tapas and wine on a rainy night in Logrono, Spain. I loved being here. Roaming the narrow streets of Logrono, Spain under the drizzle of a cool rain. Ducking into one of many bars and restaurants for tapas/pintxos and a glass of wine. The energy of people crowded together, sharing, laughing and telling stories was amazing! It was one of those times in my life that I relished being alive for one more day. Can’t blame […]
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 […]
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 […]
Recent photoshoot for book project by Human Kinetics, Your Workout Perfected, by Nick Tumminello. Being in a gym feels like home to me. You wouldn’t necessarily know it by looking at me, but the gym and/or what it represents have always been close to my heart. That’s why I love photographing athletes. Witnessing the passion, dedication and the blessings of a fitness lifestyle. Always something to aspire to. And can you believe this guy, Korin Sutton, is a vegan body-builder? Healthy, clean eating looks goooood to me… I made these gifs just for the fun of adding motion. Lately I […]
