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.

NO ONE IS GOING TO RESCUE YOU

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 […]

Surreallistic Days

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.

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.

My family and I visited the Miccosukee Tribe Festival over the holidays. It was an awesome cultural celebration. The dancers, dressed in elaborate tribal costumes, were amazing! As were the stories of their past, present and future. Stories about physical and spiritual strength, values and wisdom. It’s hard to deny that all that comes before us remains a part of us in some way. So I’m wishing everyone #manyblessings in the new year! Especially, the blessing of knowing what from the past is worth expanding on and what is best left to shrink into the past. May creativity (God) and […]
