Mikhaile - Headshot Friday || Miami Portrait Photographers

Headshots are my favorite type of photography for 2 reasons.

  1. I never tell people to "smile"
  2. I get to create a connection between the lens, the subject, and the viewers.

Everyone with a big lens in their face becomes quite vulnerable. With my guidance, I get the opportunity to help you settle. I direct you, and joke around a little bit to assure you that everything will be fine. All-in-all, people end up satisfied because the outcome captures them in a moment not usually photographed in high quality. This moment is truly captured through the eyes. Most connect to the eyes with headshots, so they will always be tack sharp in my images.

Now onto the subject.

I first met the talented Mikhaile through the Locust Projects' Annual Spring Fling Fundraiser where I captured the evening's festivities for MIAMI Magazine. Mikhaile and I both have a background in architecture -- she actually holds a Master's Degree in Architecture -- an impressive feat. We both also enjoy investing our time in education for the youth. A beautiful soul, not to mention she is the director of PRIZM Art Fair. Congratulations and wish you the best for your endeavors with PRIZM.

Chef Rhee + Kiki on the River - Back of House Portraits || Miami Portrait Photographers

I met the talented Chef Rhee through my good friend Stacey Russell, owner of HYPED Management. She was basically one of the first professional contacts I met when moving to the Magic City. She now manages social media for a new HOT restaurant opening up late 2016 (via former Opium Group partner Roman Jones) named "Kiki on the River". I say this because it was literally named on the list of "The Most Anticipated Miami Restaurant Openings, Spring 2016" by Congratulations Chef on your new additional Executive Chef position, and to you Stacey for your new client endeavors.

SilentRevolutionMIA + EAST, MIAMI - Lollapalooza Live Video Recap || Miami Event Videographers

One of the many jobs of an event videographer (or photographer) is to capture those moments that are not on the "checklist", meaning many visuals are captured based on the quality of your photographer's imagination. Also meaning, that photographer has to pay attention to detail and be ready to create a visual at ANY time. I have 2 goals in mind when capturing any event:

  1. Make the event look better than it really is.
  2. Tell a story for those who did not attend.

With these two goals in mind, I am able to create the visual communication of "Fear of Missing Out", aka FOMO. Creating FOMO is not my goal, but it tends to be the first thing that comes to mind after watching the video below. Congratulations to Silent Revolution MIA and EAST Miami for being the only party in Miami to live stream Lollapalooza. Thanks to LeDrone.Me for Aerial footage and RedBull TV for throwing the whole thing.
