I am an entrepreneur by nature, but photography and music are my true callings. I have been known to stroll down Collins Ave in South Beach with my camera bag thrown over one shoulder, and my record bag over another. Yes, I still love playing vinyl records, and enjoy the warm, crisp sound they give off when played loud in a club.
I will often stop on my way somewhere when I see a beautiful picture waiting to happen. I am often driven to capture awe-inspiring moments on film forever when I can. Life is about the journey and not the destination. Sometimes you have to slow it down and appreciate all that life has to offer, and not pass by the "good things" scattered along our path.
My passion for the arts and photography led me to open my own photography studio in 2007. I have assembled an amazing team of world-class photographers and led them to great success both individually and as a team. There is no better feeling than working with a talented group of people on the next big project.
I have fond memories of a shoot not too long ago that was almost a total disaster. It was about 10:30 on a Monday morning, and I was on the way to the beach with my equipment and beautiful assistant in toe. We both had out hands full as we exited the cab on Ocean Blvd. Just as we stepped out onto the street, clouds filled the sky, thunder began to roar, and rain began to fall from the sky. Just as the cab drove off, my assistant shouts out "my phone"!
Without hesitation I start to run after the fleeing cab, waving my arms and screaming for him to stop. I had to chase him nearly 3 blocks before he finally saw me and pulled over. Recovering the iPhone 5S from the back seat, I began my way south, back to the beach, winded, pouring in sweat, and covered in rain. What a way to start the day. But sometimes when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
The light rain added a real feel to the photos that day, and I even caught an amazing rainbow on film in the background as I wrapped up the shoot. The client was stoaked. Total success! We celebrated as a team later at a local bar, and laughed and reminisced about the toils and tribulations of the day, and how amazing it turned out after all.
If you could see even one tenth of the beauty I see in a woman, you too would be seduced, you too would believe, you too would live your life surrounded by boundless beauty and grace.
If you are a beautiful person inside and out I look forward to hearing from you. My life is pretty busy, but I make time for incredible people. Are you one of them? Let's talk and find out if we like each-other...
