Interior Designer Michael Dawkins recently launched the opening of his huge New York City showroom and as his go to professional advertising photographer, he had us fly in from Miami to photograph it. With it he brings his contemporary vision for high-end furniture, accessories and product design to The Big Apple. For this shoot we focused on shooting a lot of details and vignettes for Michael’s advertising campaigns. With some key dramatic lighting accents and shot angles we got some strong, edgy material for him to use. The distinct architectural lines in his showroom, as well as his custom black laquered flooring made an interesting setting for his unique furniture pieces to be photographed in.

Although Craig Denis is a professional photographer based in Miami, he travels anywhere for a photographic project. Visit his official website www.craigdenis.com to learn more.

Artefacto, is a Brazilian based furniture design company which is making quite an impact in the Miami interior design scene. Working with Alef Construction Group, they provide fully furnished condos in some of Miami’s most sought after spots to live. In this project I was commissioned to shoot a completed project at the Ocean House on South Beach for an advertising campaign to push Artefacto’s new furniture product line. These images were featured in Florida Design Magazine as well as other South Florida publications.

Michael Dawkins Home is a well known furniture and interior design accessory store located in the heart of Miami’s Design District. Known for their eclectic minimalistic approach, the products that they carry are usually have a neutral feel with a very unique, timeless quality. The samples featured here are new pieces designed by Michael Dawkins himself and unlike the Scan Design photography shoot that we did, Michael wanted to keep the lighting bright and airy and have it shot on a white seamless with minimal shadow drop. These images will be used in his new advertising campaign in Miami and as a commercial photographer, shooting simple product shots are one of my favorite things to photograph. Keeping the mind set less is more often applies to the the art of professional photography.

This is a compilation of various projects for Casale Marble Imports, a high-end stone supplier and installer. Working with a client such as this makes me really have to think about the product in which they need to sell and in turn the approach that I need to take to achieve that. Notice some of the extreme angles taken to accent the stone work. The images from this project were used as advertising and featured in Florida Design Magazine

For this project I was commissioned to shoot classic product shots on a white seamless backdrop of some new custom wine racks by Glass and Glass in Miami for there latest advertising campaign. I was excited to provide the final shots of this wine rack in Black and White which certainly give this piece a retro look. Photographing glass can be quite a challenge and often the best way to handle it is to light behind the glass to give a silhouetted look to piece itself. The effect of lighting the negative space in turn lights the object in this situation.

Haimov Jewelry is a high-end commercial jeweler/watch maker in Downtown Miami these are some examples of a product photography shoot we did for them in conjunction with Haute Living Magazine for an advertising campaign with the Magazine. Working as a product photographer shooting jewelry and watches is not as easy as it may seem, dealing with the proper lighting and reflections are a challenge especially when diamonds are involved. Always remember to keep the hands of the watches at the 10 and 2 positions.

This industrial, minimalistic setting was the perfect environment for the new ad campaign for Scan Design’s new product line.
This project was my first collaboration with Say It Loud! Advertising out of Orlando and it was a fantastic experience. We opted to kill the ambient lights and I lit the set from scratch. The final images read more as a fine art series and I am very excited about the end result!

Another interesting assignment for Haute Living Magazine! As a professional photographer you never know what the next project will bring, it is not every day that I get the opportunity to work with a subject such as this and we certainly made the best of it! I not only had the opportunity to photograph the Ferrari California, but we drove it all over Miami for the day picking some very iconic locations to shoot around the city. The first stop was Miami’s Wynwood Art District to shoot the car against a backdrop of the notorious Wynwood Walls where the contrast of graffiti really made the Ferrari pop. We then took the a trip over to Fairchild Tropical Gardens and did something you could only do if you have a Ferrari, we drove right into the grounds of the park and took a few shots of the car in the lush tropical gardens until we got kicked out by the grounds keeper (who was laughing at the our bold attempt to break into the park.) From there we took a trip into Coral Gables and got a few pictures in front of the Biltmore. Our plan the whole time was to finish this project at sunset under the 395 causeway with it’s glowing deco style bridge as a backdrop.

Say it Loud…Again!

Scan Design Ad Campaign by professional product photographer Craig Denis

Another successful collaboration with Say it Loud! advertising agency for Scan Design. This time we brought in a model and subtly weaved her abstractly through the set ups using a shutter dragging technique to bring about motion in the figure. The element of adding a figure really excited me on this shoot because it is very reminiscent of my early fine art work and was an added spark to a typical product photography shoot.
