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.

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.

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 small studio on Miami Beach the space was maximized by Architect Miguel Fernandez of 1d+d Studio Gallery. This project called for a few key vignettes shots which really brought this portfolio together. The uniqueness of this small project got a lot of big exposure on Houzz.com’s idea books. The detail shot with the quilted art was featured on Houzz for an article on patchwork as art, and the detail of the bed was also featured on Houzz for an idea book article on framing textiles on art. Both of these image were also featured on another Houzz article for a piece on 11 ways to remake a room with fabric.

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.

This log features a few key players in Miami’s booming business scene. These portraits were once again commissioned by Haute Living Magazine for a recent editorial. We chose to have these pictures done as Environmental Portraits and in my opinion it is always best to capture people in their true settings. From top to bottom we have Shareef Malnik, owner of The Forge Steak House which has recently has been completely renovated. The next portraits are Celeste and Chef Todd Miller from STK Steak House at the Gansevoort which is now known as the Perry South Beach. We approached shoot this with more of a lifestyle setting shot on location at STK before it even opened. The last one is a portrait of Lydia Martinez of Market America which was at their Miami Beach Mansion.

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!
