I Started My Career Shooting and Writing for Boat Publications

At the beginning of my photography career I photographed and wrote
articles for many different boating publications. Having grown up in
Florida, I had an innate understanding of boating and fishing so this
came naturally to me. I had the pleasure of accessing many of the
greatest names in racing and boating from Magnum, Cigarette, Donzi,
Apache,as well as many others. But among all of my boating assignments
none made such an impact on me as the afternoon I spent with Gary
Garbrecht. Actually I shadowed him most of the day and his energy level
and innovative thinking abounded in everything he did. Below you will
find the magazine feature I did of him in 1989 that was in Powercraft
Magazine. This was an exclusive interview and to my knowledge(Mr.
Garbrecht told me he had never had done an in-depth interview)it never
been done before or after.

He was one of the pioneers of outboard engines.   His innovations in boat racing are still in use today.  This article was picked up by many other publications but it really was the only in-depth interview he ever gave.  I am still very proud that he decided that I would be the one he shared with.

Unit Production Commercial Still Photographer

November 18th, 2013
As a Unit Production Stills Photographer in Florida my job is to create two types of images. The first is, photos specifically intended for use in the publicity and marketing of feature films or television productions, shot as the main camera sees it, while the movie is being filmed. I am also always look for alternative angles and shots taken from a different point of view than the main camera as long as they can capture the movie mood and feel without altering the meaning of the scene. The lighting and feel of the scenes integrity is always maintained without any embellishment from me or my exposures. Simply stated, no flash and a similar look and feel to exposures set by the camera operators. Rachael Taylor on the set of ABC’s Charlie’s Angels

On the set I document the making of the movie or show and images includes close-ups of the actors and crew, wide shots of the crew shooting the action or even setting up the equipment, props etc. Basically anything that goes on behind the scenes that can still used for press releases and/or released to the media.

Minka Kelly Takes a Break Between Takes While Filming Charlie’s Angels in Miami I shoot with top of the line NIKON bodies using the fastest and best lenses available ( I can shoot on low lit sets when needed with the fastest primes available on the market) and two professional sound blimps to reduce (almost mute) the sound of my camera’s motor drives & shutters, so its noise won’t get picked on the film’s recorded soundtrack while the action is rolling. All of the above must be done while not getting in the way of the crew, or even worse, without getting in the shot myself. In order to accomplish all this and get the job done it is extremely important to always understand and be aware of what’s happening on the set around me and what is going to happen next, and, last but not least be as invisible as possible and blend in with the crew/background.
