South Beach Santa

The other day I purchased an awesome Santa costume. I have always wanted to do a video of Santa Clause in South Beach. Miami Beach is hot year-round, so Christmas doesn’t really feel like Christmas. I thought what a better way to get into the Christmas spirit.

I called up my friend Luciano and off we went to shoot in South Beach. The rest is history. Below is the final video we made. I hope it brings a smile to your face. We had a blast making it.  I will have a making off in a few days. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below or in the video and please subscribe to my channel. The video was shot on my Go Pro Hero 5 and my Sony 6500 on a Zhiyun Crane-M.

Merry Christmas everyone.  Enjoy.

How to Document Everything

I love photography, there is no question about that. There is something about documenting the world passing you by. Change is constant and without us documenting life itself, we would forget what the past looked like. Photographers are so important in this world for that reason alone.

It is the photos from the past that make our present and our future that much better.

As simple as this lifeguard tower might seem to someone, it is part of my history, and one day 30-40 years from now, I will look at this photos and remember how different times were.

I shot the images with my Nikon D800 and my Nikon 24-85mm with a 10 stop ND filter on my MeFOTO tripod.

Shooting the Miami Skyline

Just like any other night, yesterday I grabbed my camera and headed out the door. I was so happy to go skate around and also to catch a nice sunset. The night before the sunset was epic, full of color, it looked like a crayon box had melted in the sky.

I met up with my friend Luis Enrique, and the night did not disappoint. It was not colorful like the previous night, however, it was nice and moody, the wind was blowing giving the night a really cool mood. It felt like I was walking through an amusement park at night.

I also got to fly my Mavic Pro so the evening was just epic. Check out the video to watch behind the scenes. I shot this with my Nikon D800 and my Nikon 70-200 lens. (this lens is super sharp) I shot all this on my baby tripod, I love this thing, I’m telling you it comes in handy without having to carry around a big heavy one.

Looking for Patterns

I often post this kind of photos, for some reason I find them extremely pleasing to the eye. I have been shooting this kind of photos since my kite days. I do it now for helicopters and drones. One thing about this kind of photography, it never gets old.

Forever Changing Skyline

Here is the skyline that never stops growing. I moved here 7 years ago and the buildings are like trees. They keep growing and growing. I can’t help but wonder where all these people are coming from…. I heart Miami.
