The Great Out West

Hey everyone, Summer is here and it’s been a very busy spring of travel out west. Commissions in Arizona, weddings in Arizona and Nevada and plans to spend more time this summer in Las Vegas to explore new opportunities. Shout out to my friend and collaborator Roni Fields-Moonen who I’ve known for 13 years and worked with on tons of editorial and advertising commissions for over 10 years. Excited to work with her again this summer. Here are some of my favorite photographs from my spring travels.

Martha Stewart for Palm Beach Illustrated & New Spring Editorial Covers

Hey all, It’s been a while since my last post and I’m excited to share some of my new work with you. It’s been a busy season in South Florida and we’ve been traveling a good amount of the time and enjoying the beautiful Florida winters with a taste here and there of the cold of winter, just enough to remind us of how good we have it.

I was recently commissioned to photograph Martha Stewart during the SoBE food and wine festival festivities while she was in Palm Beach. She teamed up Clay Conley, Chef/Owner of Buccan, Grato and Imoto and Lindsay Autry, Executive Chef/ Partner at The Regional for an exclusive dinner at The Regional Palm Beach.

Back on the West coast, of Florida that is, we were commissioned to photograph Naples “Leading Ladies” for the April Issue of the Gulf Coast’s Naples Illustrated magazine. Each woman we photographed were a joy to photograph and made my task of lighting and posing that much easier. Styling provided by Philip Douglas Salon of Naples, Art Direction by Loretta Grantham and Assisted by Joe Loverde. Artis Naples formally the Philharmonic Center for Performing Arts of Naples were our gracious hosts and allowed us to take over much of their lovely interior spaces for this portrait assignment. Here is the work.

We were also blessed to have been asked to shoot Jerrilyn & David Hoffman for the February Cover of Naples Illustrated not included here as well as the March cover featuring the indelible Jane Purdy Berger who’s made her mark in more ways than one as well as being tireless advocate for charitable organizations everywhere. Thank you Jane for being so gracious with your time and precious energy.

First up the published copy of our shoot for Fort Lauderdale Magazine’s March 2019 Design Issue from the Faena District on Miami Beach. Hair and Makeup by Shani from Agency Girard, Art Direction by Matthew Kritis and the Vanessa Rogers Photography team.

New SUPERMEN Spreads for Fall 2018.

It’s always an honor to photograph the annual SUPERMEN winners from the Gulf Coast for Naples Illustrated Magazine. Each and every one of them are distinguished gentlemen and philanthropists. This is my 6th year shooting this spread and cover and every year get’s a little more interesting. It’s always a challenge to shoot in dark spaces and it’s a rarity that I’m shooting in dark spaces that aren’t exterior shots but a casino will definitely take the cake for unusually lit but unlit venues. I was grateful for the help of many of the staff of the Seminole Immokalee Casino to help this shoot become a success. Thank you to my Assistants Eric Bandin and Natalie Leah, Teri Evans the Editor and Chief of Naples Illustrated, Saks Fifth Avenue for Wardrobe, styling by Alexander Hayes, art direction by Olga Gustine and Jenny Fernandez-Prieto. An amazing team. Here is the result of the teams collaboration.

New York City Summer 2018

Had the great pleasure to spend a few weeks of my summer in my old stomping grounds for a few meetings, shoots and most importantly quality time with my oldest and dearest friends. On the way I captured a few shots. I love NYC in the summertime.

Summer 2018 Travels and Personal Work

It's been a few months since my last blog post, I've just recently returned from nearly a month of traveling for work in New York City and for my annual Rogers Family Reunion in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. It's always amazing to be out west surrounded by family and friends in what can only be described truly as god's country. Here is a sampling of some of the photos from this past month of travels.

September 2017 Fashion and Portrait Spreads

It's been a while since our previous post, between hurricane Irma and summer travels to Italy, Colorado and soon Brazil there has just been too much content to handle and edit for the blog. In lieu of total indecision here are the newest spreads and covers for the Fall Season September 2017!

Loved working on this cover and spread for Naples Illustrated's Annual Supermen Issue for the 6th time. It's always such a great pleasure working with Southwest Florida business owners, philanthropists and all in all great guys as well as these adorable dogs all in need of adoption from the Naples Humane Society (all since adopted). Here is this year's spread shot on location at the Naples home of Connie and Joseph Burke. Wardrobe and Styling by Arda Boyer of Mondo Uomo, Naples. Grooming by Philip Douglas. 

My cover shoot with the one and only Alan Richman of MAN VS FOOD

Happy Spring everyone. It's been a hot minute since my last update but better late than never. There have been quite a few projects and since I last posted but I'm excited to share my April Cover with Palm Beach Illustrated with 4 fabulous chef's, one of which I actually found myself watching obsessively before I stopped watching cable tv altogether, the one and only Alan Richman of Man Vs Food television fame. Can I tell you, he lives up to his hysterical reputation, literally I laughed the entire day and he was gracious as he was funny. Thank you too all of my fab subjects and enjoy the shoot baby below!

Stay tuned for more updates soon, here from your favorite team at Vanessa Rogers Photography!

An exciting start to the year

The year has begun and what a fun way to kick-start the "Infinity year!" I have been working on many enjoyable projects and can't wait to show you what I've been shooting so far.


Ike Behar New York arrives to Miami

The successful menswear company that brings luxury tailored suits to a well dressed man in New York has finally made its way down to us in Miami for its new ad campaign, with no lack of that "Behar" touch. Pops of color combined with classic tailored suits give a warm introduction to spring.


Swimwear for Spring 2015

It's swimsuit season and these girls are definitely looking hotter than the sizzling sun! My thanks goes out to Wilhelmina Miami for collaborating with me on this project, as well as Nycole Sariol for styling this shoot for me.

 


Deborah Rosenberg

I was asked by Ocean Drive Magazine to photograph one of Miami's jewels of the Interior design world, Deborah Rosenberg. Her eye for combining textures, colors, and even scents when designing a home or space are so exquisite! It was really a delight getting the chance to photograph her.

 

Lost Boys Dry Goods

Another project that I was commissioned to shoot was photographing the owners, Randy and Brian Alonso, of Lost Boys Dry Goods, which is located in the heart of downtown Miami. Their family, which came from Cuba in the 1950's, to open a well known store called "La Epoca," were also located in downtown Miami. After their parents passed away, Brian and Randy decided to carry on the family tradition, by opening their own storefront, literally across the street from their parents old store. The moment you walk inside you are given a sense of nostalgia and family tradition, which was what the boys wanted to create in this store, homage to their own family and its traditions.


John R. Wood Properties

I had the pleasure of producing a winter ad campaign for John R. Wood Properties, a luxury realtor firm in Naples.
