What do you love about your job?
I love food!! And I love working with creative chefs! And I love seeing my work all over on social media, menus, digital ads, magazines, just about everywhere - and how people comment and love these photos, more importantly, I love seeing how effective my work is for restaurant marketing and advertising. The photos I take make a huge impact for these restaurants growing their businesses and I just love that.
What type of shoots do you enjoy doing the most? Why?
I specialize in restaurant photography and I enjoy it a lot that every restaurant is always different. There is always different lighting inside/outside, different ambiance, different kind of food, and different people I work with. So for every photoshoot I have to prepare myself a little differently and set up also accordingly. My job takes a lot of detail to attention, being present, and concentration.
What are some of your favorite places in your area to take photos?
My favorite places to have photoshoot would be upscale restaurants in South Beach, Sunny Isles, Bal Harbour, Fort Lauderdale, or anywhere in South Florida. The plating and creativity with dishes are another level at upscale restaurants. They really pay attention to visuals of the plate and I believe that it makes a great difference because quality food is not only the way it tastes but also the way it looks!
Any awards, honors, or recognition that you've received for your photography?
I was reached out by Fort Lauderdale Magazine to do their food photography at their annual upscale dinning experience. I am honored that my work is published on many issues of this magazine.
