The Miami Museum of Ice Cream is as Pink as you imagine

What is this place? Its the Museum of Ice Cream. I had no idea what to expect before walking into the Museum of Ice Cream. As soon as the door behind me closed all I could see was pink, like being inside a massive cotton candy ball.

Ok ok, here is what I want you to do.  Close your eyes, now imagine walking into a happy place, not just any place but a place you would read about in a children’s fantasy book. Are you there? Now paint it pink. Yes, its kind of like that. People smiling, kids laughing it is just a great time. Ok great, let’s walk through the place together.

With a massive grin on my face, I approach a fortune teller, and you guessed it, she is dressed in pink.  She asks me to pick a card, and after careful consideration, the card is chosen. Like a kid at a candy store, am full of joy and I listen as she reeds my fortune. I was kind of skeptical at first but I do not want to spoil this adventure for you but let’s just say she predicted everything correctly.

We make our way to the first room, where the sprinkle pool is. It is epic but a bit crowded. There are screaming children everywhere. We wait until everyone exits and we get our shots before the next group comes in.

The Museum of Ice Cream gets cooler as you start walking through the mase of pink.

The beautiful thing about the Museum of Icecream is that the fun never ends, they have ice cream in just about every corner, and every spot is a photo op. Let me rephrase that, is an incredible photo op, unlike any photo op out there.

We spent about 3 hours there and we could have spent a lot longer. Once you make it past the first room, the crowds start to dissipate and everyone starts to go at their own pace, some slower than others.

Cameras are allowed and you can click the day away in just about every corner. The entire staff is friendly and they go out of their way to help you get your perfect shot. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

The Museum of Icecream finishes at the rooftop of the building. A nice place to eat the last scoop of key lime pie ice cream while watching the sunset with an epic ocean view.

Here are some of the photos we shot. The model is Mercedes, you can follow her on Instagram. Scroll to the bottom of the post to watch the video.

THE GEAR

The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon D800 with a Nikon 14-24mm and a Nikon 24-85mm.  A MeFOTO tripod and a wide angle is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.

 

What’s your favorite photo? Can you guess mine?

Paris Hilton Dj’s Art Basel

I had the pleasure of shooting Paris Hilton During Art Basel week. She made an appearance at a private party, and let me tell you she still has a massive following. After about an hour of her taking selfies with fans and on the red carpet she made it up on stage. I thought she was going up to wave a the crowd, but instead, she started to tear up the turntables. I had never seen Paris play before, and I was pleasantly surprised. She can get down and pump up the crowd.

As soon as she started playing the floor filled up with people dancing and trying to sneak a photo of Paris with their cell phones, it was impossible to get through that crowd, so I waited until her set was almost over to get in the crazy crowd and get a shot.

Here is one of my favorite photos I shot of her. She was dancing, pumping up the crowd and just having a good time.  It’s good to see Paris in Miami, especially during Art Basel.

Portraits with Jorge

I love hanging out with awesome people, meet Jorge, he is as awesome as it gets. We had an awesome portrait session. Jorge tried to tell me he has never done this before, however, I think he has done this once or twice before.

He is an awesome photographer and an amazing model. We started off taking some headshots and we quickly moved to the stool. I think the stool worked out great.

It’s always great working with such amazing talent.

I shot these photos with my Nikon D800 and my Nikon 24-70mm.

Photo shoot with Moe Marks

I did a super fun shoot with my Friend Moe. It was so much fun, we went to the beach, rode my motorcycle and not only that but we made a Vlog!!!

I love getting together with creative people, it is so much fun to just rant about random stuff running through your head. Its crazy to think that there are people just as crazy as you out there! Check out some of the pics we shot and all the behind the scenes action in the video below!

Talking to the Locals

Talking to the Locals

As I walked the streets I met loads of people, but this lady was particularly special. I asked her if I could take her picture and she said “of-course”. She then asked me where I was from and what I was doing, sending me off with lots of great wishes thanking me for taking her photograph.
