Hello my followers! It has been too long since my last post and I am very excited to tell you what I've been working on in the last couple of months including new editorial covers, a cookbook and plans to lead photography workshops in Canada beginning in the summer of 2016.
FLORIDA'S FIRST LADY
One project I was really excited to have been asked to shoot was photographing Florida's First Lady, Ann Scott, who also made the front cover of Naples Illustrated for the October issue.She was quite a wonderful and inviting hostess and I was honored to spend time getting to know her while capturing her essence and documenting her charitable and generous affiliations during our stay with her in Tallahassee.
For Naples Illustrated December cover, I was asked to photograph Janett Evanovich. If you don't know her, she is a New York Times best selling author, who is well known for her contemporary mysteries. Janett and her husband decided to make a movie, which is called "One for the Money" which stars Katherine Heigl. In the interview, Janett talks about the freedom she experienced once she made it, which gave her and her husband the chance to make a change in their personal lives.
SEA SALT COOK BOOK
One of my more comprehensive projects I recently had the pleasure of photographing this year was my collaboration with Chef Fabrizio Aielli creating his cook book called "Sea Salt." With influences from Italy, the Himalaya's, Thialand, and many parts of the wold, his recipe book shows you how applying creativity to your passions makes wonderfully savory and unique dishes.
PORT ROYAL JEWELERS
I was also asked to create a luxurious advertising campaign for Port Royal Jewelers jewelry line. I instantly knew what to do, creating an illustrious lifestyle campaign at Miami Beach. Using a yacht, and with the help of fashion stylist Michaela Vattimo, we had the pleasure of creating a timeless campaign that Port Royal Jewelers loved.
DIAMOND CUSTOM HOMES
This past fall, I was so pleased to help out Diamond Custom Homes with an advertising campaign that showed off the intimate elegance of their housing concepts for prospective home buyers. It wasn't hard to see why their advertisement said "Our Uncompromising Standards" as their attention to quality architecture resonates throughout the entire property.

TOPPING OFF THE REST OF THE YEAR
It was certainly a busy year here at my studio, and as we come to a close on the last days of 2014, I would love to show you some of the still life's that I had the delight of shooting over the fall. These ranged from trendy jewelry, combined with candy, to plate-ware, and food and drink.
