When a client hires you for a commercial photography assignment it goes either two ways for me. One would be where the client constantly changes their mind about what they’re looking for, the direction etc. and it’s a battle trying to get the shots they want because they don’t know what they want. The second would be like CKO Kickboxing where in their brief they had the location, the shot list, samples of the look they wanted and all the models were on time and ready to go when I arrived. When the client is this well prepared it makes any photographer’s job easy. All I had to do was show up and shoot the brief that was provided.
For the past year I’ve been contracted by the City of Coral Gables, FL to photograph events and landmarks around the city for their new website and promotional items. I’ve photographed everything from bridal portraits at bridal boutiques on Miracle Mile to the numerous city parks and even events in the city such as Carnival on the Mile. Working for the City of Coral Gables has allowed me to discover the city in a way in which I never knew before. Best part is that I get to photograph my discovery and see my work in their promotional print material as well as online with their website and social media.
I was recently hired by Carnival Cruise Line to photograph them at a travel agent focused convention called CLIA cruise3sixty at the Broward Convention Center. I was there to photograph the displays and staff as well as photograph the travel agents interactions with all the Carnival Cruise Line displays, especially the displays for their new ship, the Vista.
I was recently contacted by the photography manager from Golfsmith to photograph their Golfsmith in Pembroke Pines grand opening. It was a pretty sweet gig actually. They provided me with a well detailed shot list and the best part it was only a 2 minute drive from house. Talk about convenience.
As resident photographer for South Florida’s premier event staffing and needs company, Miami Elite Events, not only do I get to photograph the talent that works for them, but I also get to photograph venues as well. I recently went down to South Beach to photograph the Breakwater Hotel and its rooftop patio area and adjoining suites. Nothing like having VIP access to a beautiful Ocean Drive hotel rooftop all to myself.
