Wedding & Portrait Photographers
International Las Vegas 2011

This year WPPI, Wedding & Portrait Photographers International was a blast. From visiting with Past, Current & Future Sponsors; Doing Meet & Greets at sponsor booths; Joining Trevor Current of Current Photographer interviewing some incredible vendors ( OnOne Software, Pinhole Pro, WHCC, Moo, ImageQuix, Canvas On Demand, Tiffen, Animoto, Expo Imaging, Pro Mark, PhaseOne ) to name a few; Chatting with a friend from NYC, Author, Photographer and Speaker, Lindsay Adler discussing her new book “Fashion Flair for Portrait and Wedding Photography” which I’ve promised her I would review for her shortly; to shooting an incredible Retro OLD Vegas 50’s Inspired Fashion Shoot; our 4 days in Las Vegas retreated us well this year.

If interested, you can check out all of the great interviews on Current Photographer’s website.

Blog entry regarding my Retro 50’s Inspired Fashion Shoot while in Las Vegas will be posted very soon so keep checking back.

On a closing note, WPPI was put together very well with only a few exceptions. If you’re a Wedding or Portrait Professional Photographer or even amateur for that matter and have the time & some expendable cash I would highly recommend attending the conference next year in 2012; You won’t be disappointed!

Professional Boudoir Photography West Palm Beach South Florida Classy Glamorous Fine Art 1

Professional Boudoir Photography … Classy Not Trashy * South Florida

Lisa Minns wrote a fabulous article about my Classy Not Trashy Professional Boudoir Photography here in West Palm Beach South Florida which was featured on page 24 of this months November 2009 “the Parklander” Magazine; previously interviewed by the TodayShow February 2008 Valentines Day.

As for myself, Professional Photographer and wife, Fabiola, Licensed Cosmetologist, it was an absolute honor to be recognized throughout the country from the Today Show and now locally within the amazing Parklander Magazine for this life changing form of photography called Boudoir. It is my goal to not only make beautiful images but to impress positively on every individual whom I photograph. I’m humbled by the amazing stories that I hear from past clients on how we had effected their over-all view of themselves and empowered them to move forward fearlessly and with confidence.

Musician Album Cover Photographer & Designer 1

Musician Album Cover Photographer & Designer West Palm Beach, FL

Well as a photographer for the better part of two decades, I have photographed many interesting people. One of my FAVORITE projects is to work on is a fellow artists vision / inspiration. Not being stifled, bond by so many rules and guidelines, allows my creative juices to flow! * I LOVE IT *

About a month ago, Samuel Gali, (musician, composer, pianist) approached me after searching for a professional musician style photographer that could not only give him the IMAGE that he was looking for but have the ability to complete his project from start to finish.

His project was a complete Press-Ready 6 panel DigiPak as seen in your local music store. This album cover project not only included a studio photo session but direct work with Layout, Design and Replicators requirements. Having magazine and advertising agency background doing paste-up, layout and front cover work, it’s by far my passion to create final production pieces!

I love photography but still consider myself a PHOTO-ARTIST more than a “Photographer”. I just love love love getting elbows deep in Photoshop, In Design, Illustrator and other instrumental packages to create final production pieces for my clients.

As a professional musician photographer whom has worked on instrumental albums, singer song writers albums as well as music producers promotional materials, I find myself very “in-tune” with the “artist”.

Their IMAGE is absolutely critical and the professional photographer they commission to capture it is as important as picking the right first song on their album! Artist realize that their IMAGE can be made or broke by a photograph; It’s that important.

During my sessions with artists, as a rule, I ask that an they bring a demo reel with them that can be played throughout the studio to give me a better feel for who they are. Let me just say, GALI’s ( IS ) an amazing, let me repeat AMAZING musician, composer & pianist,!! All I can say is; Wow! The sound that filled the studio was unbelievable!

Having been selected out of many Professional Photography & Design Studios to create his first (signature) CD /DVD combo DigiPak music album was an honor for me. Thank you for the opportunity and I look forward to your up and coming second album.

Look for GALI’s album to hit stores by the beginning of next year and his first release on itunes is coming very soon! If you like masterful piano with a Jazzy, Modern Sound, you’re gonna love his work!

Professional Photographer Palm Beach American Heart Association Event Wine Storage PGA

Professional Photographer Palm Beach Event Coverage – American Heart Association @ Wine Storage PGA – Once again the American Heart Association Palm Beach “North County” had an incredible benefit at the newly opened Wine Storage facility on Palm Beach Gardens Blvd (lower right images). The venue is spectacular to say the least! If any of you collect wine and have cases that are becoming harder and harder to store. Wine Storage of PGA is just the place for you! Their location has a large walk in climate controlled storage facility which is divided into difference sized secured areas for any needs or budget. As seen in the above (top right image) management standing inside of the climate controlled storage facility.
