Jasmine Fernandez | Bayshore Blvd.

I first met Jasmine in December of 2014; she was the first girl that I shot in Tampa after moving there a week or so prior. Since then we have done a ton of shoots together and have become great friends. Jasmine never fails to amaze me. She always has a smile on her face and her attitude is constantly positive. For this shoot we decided to go to Bayshore Blvd. In Tampa for a more commercial fitness look. Once again Jasmine knocked it out of the park and the shots we got were fantastic as always. I always love working with Jasmine and look forward to my future shoots with her. Check out the photos below and leave comments below...

Ashley Lands

I first met Ashley 2 years ago when I shot the Corsa America Rally calendar 2 years ago. She didn't shoot that day but we became friends on social media and a few months ago we spoke about setting up a shoot. We were trying to figure out a date to shoot and get some ideas when our mutual friend Joseph Elneggar of Certified Motors in Tampa came into possession of a 1964 Lincoln Continental. This has always been a favorite car of mine and Ashley also wanted to do a shoot with it as well. We planned a date to shoot and location and on the day of everything came together perfectly. Ashley was incredible to work with and from the beginning of the shoot til the end we were on the same page. Ashley is very beautiful but also very sweet and made the shoot super easy with her laid back style and great attitude. Love the shots we got on this day and can not wait to work with Ashley again on some fantastic ideas that we have spoke about. Enjoy the pics below and please be sure to leave likes and comments on the post...

Amanda Taylor

I first met Amanda Taylor when she came to Tampa to do a shoot for Corsa America Rally. The first thing I noticed from across the room were perhaps the bluest eyes I have ever seen. Behind those eyes is an intelligent beautiful young woman who has an electric smile and a great personality. We did the Corsa shoot which went flawlessly and then we decided to go down to the beach afterwards to do a sunset shoot. We only had about an hour or so to shoot by the water but that was all we needed. Amanda was incredible and we were able to get some fantastic images. I can not wait to work with Amanda again soon and to get even more great images. Check out some of the photos below and leave comments .... 

Corsa America Rally

I have been lucky enough to work with Corsa America Rally now for about two and a half years. In that time we have done multiple shoots with some of the countries most beautiful women and some of the worlds most amazing automobiles. All the people at Corsa are absolute aces. It starts from the top with Thomas Heinrichs, the boss, and goes from there. Everyone from the car owners to the girls can not be better to work with and I always look forward to these jobs. This last set of shoots we did this fall was no exception. It took place over 3 days with 9 beautiful women and 10 incredible cars. Some of the girls I have worked with before and for some it was a first time; regardless, every single girl crushed it. Long days, tough light, a ton of outfits and getting the right angles and not one complaint from anyone.

   Thank you to Thomas for putting all of this together; he booked all the models and handled all travel and schedule coordination including getting the cars as well. Huge thank you goes out to Joseph Elnaggar from Certified Motors in Tampa for everything he did at these shoots. From bringing the air conditioned trailer for the girls to change in to putting decals on all the cars and helping move every car into the right spot these shoots most certainly would not have gone as smoothly without him. Thank you to all of the guys who brought their cars to the shoots. Thank you as well to Peter O'Knight Airport in Tampa Florida for letting us take over one of your hangars and allowing us a great private location to shoot at. And last but not least thank you to all of the models who came and made my job so much easier. This whole thing is a team effort and no matter what you think you can not do it alone so when you have a great team come together and everyone is on the same page it makes for a great experience and great images.

Kimberley Jade

It is a great feeling as a photographer when you and a model just get each other; when either of you have an idea and both get excited it about and then execute it. Such is the case with Kimberley and I. I have known Kim now for about 2 years and in that 2 years we have worked together a lot. Whether it be on portfolio building shoots or photo jobs for various companies we inevitably find ourselves together on our respective sides of the camera. Thanks to this we have developed a great friendship and know that we can trust in each other when the time comes to make great photos. On this particular shoot we were both itching to get outside to the beach and shoot some editorial bikini shots. We met in Clearwater early morning and shot for about an hour or so. We didn't need very long to come out of it with great photos. Kimberley as usual crushed it and made the shoot a ton of fun with her infectious laugh and great smile. I always have and always will love working with this beautiful girl and can not wait tll our next collaboration. Take a look at the pics below and leave some comments as well....

Gabrielle Molina

Some shoots take a little longer to happen then others but when that wait is worth it, it makes all the time worth it. Such is the case with Gabrielle. We talked for over a year about setting up a shoot and finally a short while ago we got to do it. Gabrielle is a stunning young woman who is incredibly sweet with a smile that lights up a room. She made this shoot super fun and very easy. As soon as we started shooting the photos were fantastic and throughout the day they just got better and better. I can not wait to work with her more on some upcoming shoots and I know they will be even better. Be sure to check out the shots below and leave comments...

Jessica Jones

This was my first shoot with the gorgeous Jessica Jones. Jessica is from Miami and was going to be in Tampa so she contacted me about doing a shoot. It was fairly last minute but we put some looks together and even on short notice Jessica nailed it and the shoot turned out fantastic. Jessica was incredible to work with and just a super sweet girl. I can not wait to work with her again in the very near future either in Tampa or Miami. Take a look at the shots from our shoot and please leave comments below...

Jamie Flowers

Sometimes you meet someone for the first time at a shoot and you immediately click and before you take one photo you know the shoot is going to be fantastic. Such is the case the first time I met Jamie in Sarasota not to long ago. We met at the beach for an early morning shoot in Siesta Key, Florida. Jamie is not only beautiful on the outside but she is even more beautiful on the inside. Her smile is electric and her laugh infectious. She made the whole shoot a breeze and we were able to get some amazing shots throughout the morning. I look forward to working with Jamie much more in the future and can not wait to see the images that we get. Check out the shots below from our first shoot and please leave comments...

Lindzay Lee

I first worked with Lindzay last year and we had a fantastic shoot. She was no only beautiful but her and I got along very well and we were both in agreement that we would be working together a lot. And that is exactly what has happened as this shoot was the 4th in the last year. Every time we shoot we get fantastic images and have a great time shooting and this time was no exception. Once again Lindzay came with a ton of great looks and we got a lot of great images. Be sure to check out some of the images below and please leave comments...

Taylor Anderson

I have been lucky enough to work with the beautiful Taylor Anderson 4 times in the last 2 years. Taylor is an IFBB Pro which means she is an elite athlete who has worked her ass off to sculpt her body to be recognized as one of the best in her division. Meeting Taylor even once you can see that she has a drive and focus in her eyes that can not and will not be denied. Behind that is a beautiful woman who has a fantastic sense of humor and an absolute lust for life. With Taylor I have gotten some of my favorite fitness shots ever and always get excited when we set up a new shoot. I love working with her and I can not wait to work again with her in the near future. Be sure to check out her pics from our last shoot and please leave comments below...

Lindsay Moreno

I first worked with Lindsay about 2 years ago. I loved her look and we had a great shoot and got some fantastic images. We tried to do another shoot sooner than 2 years but scheduling conflicts by us both got in the way and it took a little longer than we both would have wanted to make the next shoot happen. But they say the best things come to those who wait and when we did finally get together for our 2nd shoot it was amazing. Lindsay absolutely smashed the shoot as you can see below. She had a new look with the short hair and she has the most piercing blue eyes. They are like lazer beams when she stares at you. Lindsay is an absolute stunner and has a great personality to match. She is always ready to laugh and makes shooting an absolute joy. Can not wait to work with her again in the very near future and make some more increbible images. Enjoy the photos below and leave some comments as well….

Jessica Brachfeld

            Being a photographer you meet a lot of great people. People you might not have the chance to meet on a regular basis. I am lucky enough to shoot some absolutely beautiful women on a nearly daily basis and many times I develop a friendship with them as well. Such is the case with the gorgeous and incredible Jessica Brachfeld. I first met Jessica in 2010 for a photo shoot and since then I have worked with her countless times.  I always look forward to working with Jess wherever we shoot. Especially when we shoot at her home in upstate New York and I get to see my favorite dog; her Great Dane, Dolce.  Dolce is definitely the most difficult model I have to work with but when she is on her A game no one is better ;)  I consider myself lucky that I get to call Jessica a friend and was honored when she invited me to her wedding a little over a year ago. This last shoot we did was in NY over the summer and once again we had a fantastic one. Jess always has great ideas when it comes to wardrobe and being a hairstylist (Ladies, if in need of extensions Jessica is the one to go to)  her hair is always fantastic. I always look forward to seeing and talking and shooting with her and can not wait to do it again soon. Be sure to check out some of the images from the last shoot we did and be sure to comment as well…

Mercedes G.

I first met Mercedes when she shot for Bikini Crush Swimwear late last year in Amelia island, Florida. From the moment we started shooting I knew this girl had the "it" factor. She exuded confidence in her poses and had all the looks down. The Bikini Crush shoot went great and the pics were fantastic. A few months past and we started to talk about setting up a new shoot. As we were coming up with ideas we both realized that we were very into the Guess ads and the Guess look so we decided to go for that look in an outdoor setting. During the summer in Florida your biggest enemies are heat, humidity and rain. We battled all of them. After a few rain delays we got to shoot and had to dodge some rain drops while shooting but in the end we got some amazing shots and I very much think the grey of the sky lended a hand in the shots. Mercedes is young but already on a great path leading to a great career and I am sure she will make it. Look forward to working with her more in the future...

Ellie Di Virgilio for Prolific Quarterly Magazine

Earlier this year the editors at Prolific Quarterly contacted me about shooting an editorial for their Summer 2016 issue. When they contacted me they had the model and stylist chosen already and asked me to bring in the hair and makeup. The model was Ellie and the stylist was Liberate Dolce. This would be my first time working with Ellie and Libby I was excited to shoot with both of them. I contacted one of my favorite makeup artists in the Tampa area, Ashley Mortimer and knew that she would knock it out of the park. The day came for the shoot and everyone arrived at my studio with amazing energy and ready to go. Ashley rocked the hair and makeup while Libby and I got together the outfits and looks together and figured out the order which we would shoot in.  It was a marathon day of shooting as expected and a ton of shots were taken but each look was great and Ellie kept her energy at 100% the whole time. After hours of shooting the editing process began and after a few days of going back and forth with the mag all shots were chosen and edited then the waiting process began. The Issue came out a few weeks ago and low and behold we got the cover. It was a huge honor considering all of the amazing photography in the magazine. Everyone involved in the shoot was absolutely amazing. Thank you to Ellie, Ashley, Libby and of course Prolific Quarterly for this opportunity and can not wait to do more for them. Below you can see the tear sheets directly from the magazine and I have included some exclusive shots that didn't make the issue...

Mary Kaitlin for Bikini Crush

I absolutely adore Mary Kaitlin. I only met her about a year ago but we instantly became friends and our personalities meshed perfectly. We have done a few shoots over the past year and they have all been amazing and these shoots we did for Bikini Crush Swimwear were no exception. These shoots were done on seperate days but I decided to put them into one post. Love all the shots we got and can not wait to do it again with Mary Kaitlin and Bikini Crush...

Ashton Scott

I first met and worked with Ashton late last year while doing a shoot for Bikini Crush Swimwear. She was gorgeous and had a super sweet personality as well. We got some amazing shots that day and I knew I wanted to work with her again on a future shoot. It took a few months to get our scheduled coordinated but we finally did and the results were fantastic. Love working with Ashton and can not wait to do it again in the near future. Check out some of our shots from the shoot...

Jayden Jaymes

This was my first time working with the gorgeous Jayden Jaymes. We shot in my studio in Brooklyn and the results were fantastic. The first thing you notice about Jayden when she first walks in the door is how tall she is her striking beauty. Then you find out how sweet and genuine she is. We spent the whole shoot talking and laughing. I always love working with people who can be themselves around me; it helps to get the best pics possible. Check out the shots below from our shoot and let me know what you think...

Jasmine Fernandez - Gym Shoot

When I officially moved to Tampa in December of 2014 my first shoot was with the beautiful Jasmine Fernandez. It was my first time meeting her and I knew right away that her and I were going to be shooting a lot. Every time we shoot she brings 125% and always has an amazing attitude. For this shoot we were shooting a submission for a Model Modele Magazine that was going to be doing an issue featuring fitness girls. Jasmine and I decided to switch up our normal approach and shoot it at a local gym in Tampa. We started off around the gym and then went upstairs to this little room with terrible lighting and three heavy bags. The shots that came from that room were by far the favorites from the entire day. Can not thank Jasmine enough for always being incredible to shoot and can not wait to work with her again very soon...

Meg Hesser

I met Meg while doing one of my last shoots for Corsa Rally. She was awesome to work with and I knew at the time I would want to work with her again. We shot recently at my studio in Tampa and had a fantastic shoot. Meg was an absolute delight and incredibly sweet. Looking forward to working with her again in the future.

Ajla B. in St. Pete

I absolutely love working with Ajla! She is stunningly beautiful and wickedly smart; an incredible combination. On top of all of that she is super sweet and 100% genuine. For this shoot we found a great spot right off of the highway in Saint Pete., Florida. We went out around 7am and worked quickly while the light was still helping us out and we were able to get some great shots. After the sun got a little to high in the sky I pushed myself to do something a little different by using studio flash outside and battling the sun. Love the shots we got and always look forward to working with Ajla again and again...
