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.
