I refuse to talk about myself in the third person and there is no reason to talk about my experience and how it began in the darkroom with black and white film in 1981 or 1982. I can't remember back that far anyway! What is important is what I can do for you.
I am a commercial photographer and underwater photographer that has taken photos from people, to products, events and much more. Icons and celebrities from Vanilla Ice, Chubby Checker, David Cook, Dee Dee Sharpe and Burt Ward to Halle Berry and many others have been in front of my camera lens and I've been assigned to work with officials from the local level such as the mayor or Miami to Presidential Cabinet members. I've had the pleasure of shooting CEO's of fortune 500 companies such as Office Depot, and photographed for Zulily.com, Playworld Systems, Burger King, The Food Network, DIY Network, Scripps Networks, Coastal Sunwear, Amour Luxury Swimwear, major law firms, multiple colleges and universities, such as Florida Atlantic University, Navitas, Loyola University and product photography for Reebok, Flora Fine Foods and the satisfaction of working with smaller start up companies to help put them on the map with quality photography.
I currently serve on the advisory board for the well known Cosmix School of Makeup Artistry.
Here are a few things about me that will make your headshot or portrait session a positive experience:
1) I am a Miami, Florida based photographer.
With a full service commercial photography studio right in beautiful south Florida I can handle just about any project that we collaborate on. I use top of the line Broncolor lighting equipment to ensure consistency in your projects.
2) I genuinely connect with people and make them feel comfortable
You will feel comfortable in front of my camera. Really! Every single one of us change when we are in front of a camera. It can be very stressful. It is my job to photograph the real you, not the nervously posed you. That is the difference between a snapshot and a great portrait or headshot. I promise that I will make you feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera.
3) I'm actually a pretty funny guy
A great headshot or portrait invokes emotion and captures your true spirit. We will build a rapport and get to know each other in order to break down the walls of nervousness and awkwardness. The best headshots and portraits can only be captured when you are relaxed and let go. I guarantee that you will have fun and laugh along the way.
4) I love a challenge
If you have a difficult client that needs a headshot or portrait, send them my way; I am the man for the job. I will get the results that you did not think possible. After all, I did not spend 6 years in the United States Marine Corps for nothing! Honestly, I can connect with just about anyone at any level.
5) I see the beauty in everyone because it's there
I never want to hear that you are not photogenic. Everyone is photogenic in the right atmosphere when they are relaxed. We can accomplish great photography together as long as you bring the real you to the session.
6) I am a Miami headshot and portrait photography specialist
Although I have done all sorts of photography, I am a headshot and portrait specialist. Connecting with people, and bringing out the best in them is what I absolutely love to do. I am not limited to the South Florida, I can travel when duty calls
7) Although I don't market myself as a wedding photographer, I shoot weddings. I photograph weddings on a case by case basis. Feel free to contact me about your future wedding. Although not the main focus of my business, I actually love shooting them.
