Corporate Event Photography

With its all-year beach-friendly weather, South Florida is one of the top locations in the US for Corporate Events. My Corporate Event Photography coverage ensures that your entire event is properly covered. My clients have come to rely upon my services due to the images I provide them being sharp, detailed, and properly color-balanced photos with incredibly fast delivery times. I capture single-day events, multi-day corporate events, corporate retreats, activation events, and more. I provide coverage for events in Miami, Miami Beach, Ft Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Naples, and Orlando.

Grand Opening, Gala, and Red Carpet Photography

Each year, the number of international celebrities calling Miami and South Florida "home" keeps growing. So more and more studios and fashion houses are choosing South Florida as their location for movie premieres, album release parties, product launches, and retail location grand openings. Even local galas look like Hollywood red carpets. With my experience as a Getty Images photographer, clients book me knowing that I will capture the best images of their event with the ability to deliver high-quality images within hours for immediate release to news wires, social media, and content creators.

Headshot Photography

A good headshot can make all the difference when landing a great job, client, and business connection. No longer can a professional get away with an iPhone-quality headshot. Good headshots should be properly lit with no harsh shadows, sharp details, and proper color balance. I specialize in bringing professional studios to my clients' locations in Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Weston, and Palm Beaches. I work with my clients to decide the best headshot background for their business brand, be it a seamless solid background or editorial location background. We also discuss how best to shoot the headshots to match their business branding. During the session, I will coach them in posing and will review the images with them to make sure they like what they see before wrapping. Finally, I work with them to ensure that their final selection receives the proper commercial retouching to make them look like the best version of themself. 

I also provide professional portrait photography of executives and talent for advertising, marketing, and editorial publications.

Branding Photography

Photographs are one of the best tools your business can use to connect consumers or clients to your brand. While any images can promote your brand, professional images give consumers or clients confidence in your brand. I work with clients to capture images that match the tone and personality of their business brand. This can include headshots of all their staff and executives, product photography, business location images, and office action photos. These images will be used for creating your website content, social media campaigns, and print material.
