The newly renovated Penthouse at the Hilton on South Beach is not only unique to the Hilton Hotel itself, but unique to Miami Beach in general. This one of a kind unit features state of the art interior design for the living area, with two balconies that have million dollar beach views, a full kitchen, two bedrooms, and don’t forget the private rooftop pool overlooking the Atlantic.

We approached this shoot with the goal of making it look as naturally lit as possible. Once again strobe lighting came into play to balance the beach views with the interior and offered a clean look to the final images.

23 Floors up, over looking Sunny Isles Beach is this model unit completely furnished out by Artefacto for their dream homes advertising campaign. Artefacto sells completely furnished units in some of Miami’s most high-end buildings. The Regalia in Sunny Isles is their newest edition. The unique factor about the Regalia is that each floor is one unit with a 360 degree balcony and unimpeded views to the north which it will stay that way, as this is the last plot of land on Sunny Isles. The neighboring city of Golden Beach does not allow high rise buildings so unlike many buildings in Miami, this view that the bedroom overlooks is not temporary.

For professional photographers, the challenge with interior photography projects like this is getting an exposure balance between the cruicial exterior view and the interior setting. With the clever use of strobe lighting this issue can be achieved quite smoothly.

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.

In this beast of a post production project for Artefacto I was once again asked to make miracles happen to turn this showroom model unit for the soon to be Grove at Grand Bay in Coconut Grove, Miami into what looks like a penthouse apartment sitting room. In the before and after images above you can see that the room I was dealing with presented many challenges. As many commercial photographers know, preconception of the final image in post production had to be thought about while the shoot was happening. The view from the before image features a row of fake floor to ceiling windows with a printed picture of what the view will be. Artefacto’s creative team provided me with the original photos taken to print the window view, I then had to free transform and perspective control those files to fit exactly over the printed windows. Strategic professional photography lighting was set on location to bring the After image to life and further color balance was required in photoshop to give the room a daylight look to match the dropped in view from the outside. The final image is going to be used for Artefacto’s advertising campaign for this location and will be featured as a double page spread in Ocean Drive  Magazine and Florida Design

Check out my previous “Before and After” post to see a little video I put together for more before and after architectural photography samples.

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.

Yacht Club at Brickell is an AIMCO run property down in the high-end Brickell area of Miami. Set against a backdrop of Biscayne Bay it offers fantastic views of both downtown as well as the Bay and Atlantic Ocean. After shooting some environmental portraits for AIMCO at the Flamingo on South Beach, they contacted me to shoot some architectural photography of the facade of the Yacht Club both at twilight and during the day for some new commercial advertising that they are planning to do. When shooting a subject like this it is always important to make the building and surrounding landscaping look as clean as possible and that often means a little extra photoshop time than a professional photographer is willing to spend, but when the end result is as clean as these images look it is well worth the extra effort.

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.

Humberto the maintenance manager at the Flamingo on South Beach is the first from a series of environmental portraits for AIMCO’s “Meet Out People” advertising campaign which will be featured on their new upcoming website. Strobe lighting was used to balance the midday sun to bring Humberto out of silhouette in the outside shots.

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
