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.

Artefacto is a Brazilian furniture design company that is making a huge impact on the Miami luxury condo scene. They are not only in the business of selling high-end modern furniture to interior designers and private clients, but they design and furnish model units for some of the newest condo’s in the South Florida area. The project featured here is from Ocean House, a beautiful condo in a key location right off Ocean Drive on South Beach over looking the Atlantic. Given that the images from this shoot are going to be used in Artefacto’s advertising editorials, we had to give the final images the clean, neutral look that Artefacto is known for. Using professional photography lighting techniques and color correcting gels as well as strategic strobing effects to balance the outdoor day scenes, I was able to give myself a good head start for post production. The images from this shoot can be seen as double page spreads in Florida Design, Aventura Magazine, and many other South Florida periodicals.

In this commercial photography shoot for Audemars Piguet, a high-end Swiss watch dealer at the Shoppes of Bal Harbour in Miami, we focused on the interior features that make their new boutique so unique. The lighting under the main table gives it a futuristic feel and the illusion that it  is floating, while in contrast the use of stone and wood elements and the tv screen rotating images of landscapes give it a more natural outdoors look. The little rock gardens with live moss are a really nice touch as well. From a professional photographer’s stand point this was a fun project the store was very well lit but we did hit a few accents of our own lighting to bring out some details.

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

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.

When I was approached by BG Studio International, interior designers from New York City to shoot another commercial photography project I was excited to hear that this would be the 3rd cruise ship that they helped design. They already had won awards for this project from just their design renderings alone and they were eagerly awaiting these images for a publication. We only had a limited time to complete a pretty vast shot list aboard Celebrity’s newest ship the Reflection and many challenges came with this project. The beautiful Reflection Suite was among the most challenging with it’s massive wall of windows overlooking the stern of the ship. The room was completely in silhouette and needed to be brought out with strategic strobe lighting to balance the interior with the view from outside, a technique that many interior photographers have had to master.
