When Camille Kaye came to me asking me to photograph her album cover for her new album, Solstice, I already knew where I wanted to shoot it, in the Everglades. I’ve worked with Camille numerous times before and we have a good rapport when it comes to me photographing her so I knew this time would be no different. We had a tight schedule and a very small window to get the shoot it, but like other times before we were able to make it happen and boy did we ever.
I know it’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post in a while, but I’m back! I bring you a photo shoot I did with Suraya. This was sort of like a high school reunion of sort. Suraya and myself both went to Miramar High School together and graduated in ’97. Yes that long ago lol
Look who is back, Camille Kaye. I came to Camille with an idea for a shoot back in October but with conflicting schedules it was hard to get the right time in. She had some free time yesterday so we decided to make a run for it and see how my idea would turn out.
Today I bring you the lovely Alex with her enchanting eyes. I met Alex when she was bar tending back at the now defunct Miami Prime. I ran into her at her new job at the Bru’s Room, which just opened another spot down the street from me. We talked for a bit and I showed her the photo shoot I did with Lorell which got her interest in having me shoot her.
Look who is back for the third time, Lorell. Yup, we collaborated again on another photo shoot. What I love about shooting with Lorell is that every shoot is different. First shoot was down in Midtown Miami at night, the second was down on Key Biscayne and this one we were dealing with old school Rolls Royces and Bentleys from Vantage Autos in Miami. So ladies and gentlemen enjoy the ride as I guide you through the shoot with Lorell.
So there are times when I like to do things I’m not suppose to. Don’t ask me why. Maybe it’s the thrill; maybe I’m crazy. Yesterday was one of those days. I’ve had an idea to have a Miami fashion shoot with the lovely Lorell inside the abandoned Miami Marine Stadium on Key Biscayne and lucky for me, she was up to being as mischievous as me.
After many false starts, I was able to finally finish the Firehouse shoot with Camille Kaye. Let me tell you we absolutely killed it. I can honestly say we all had a blast with this shoot and it is by far and away the best work I’ve ever done. Camille is amazing and when she gets into it or gets excited then you know we’re about to do some craziness and have fun doing it.
When I first was about to photograph the talented Camille Kaye she let me listen to some of her songs so I could come up with ideas for a shoot etc. When I heard one song, “Ring Di Alarm”, I had this idea for like a fire truck or fire house type of a shoot. Yesterday we made that idea a reality, even if it was a brief reality.
I’m super excited to share this blog post with y’all about the photo shoot I did this past Wednesday with Camille Kaye. I knew Camille as the quiet waitress working at Miami Prime, but it wasn’t until my brother-in-law, Dean, told her I was a photographer did we get a chance to sit down and talk. I showed her my work and we talked for about 30 minutes and she wanted me to give her some ideas as to a potential shoot. Camille then proceeded to show me her website, www.camillekaye.com, that I learned she was a very talented singer. I’m dead serious about her talent. Fast forward to late Tuesday night when we were texting back and forth and decided to do a the shoot Wednesday afternoon. I don’t think any of us thought it would have gone so well.
