I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the age of 12 or 13, I got a nice toy as a gift: a fancy Kodak Fiesta. Loading 120mm roll film into the “techie” device quickly became one of my passions. Then, a family holiday trip to Machu Picchu, Peru, offered me my first breathtaking location to shoot. Afterwards, I processed the rolls, saw the results and never quit shooting since then.
I travel frequently to shoot assignments in different regions and countries. Traveling around the globe is part of my life and photography style.
My work is usually published by top companies, and publications such as Travel + Leisure, Wall Street Journal, Departures, Gourmet, The New York Times Style Magazine, Fortune, Business Week, Outside, Ocean Drive, National Geographic Traveler, Harpers & Queen (UK), Condè Nast Traveler (UK), Elle Decor (Germany) , Casa Brutus (Japan), among others.
It all starts with my grandfather, a Cuban publicist.
From my childhood, from his hand I began my journey through the world of the visual; Photo after photo, logo after logo, I had my first approaches with the textures, shapes and colors that define my work today.
In my youth, while studying BANG Advertising! I discovered cameras and photography and decided to dedicate life and senses to them.
I traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina, I studied photography and then I worked in the United States as an assistant to different photographers, expanding my technical skills and my vision, in a mixture of experience, passion, knowledge and the definition of my own style.
I work as a photographer for music bands, magazine publishers and advertising campaigns, always reflecting my personal style and a special interest in highlighting the details, trying to see beyond what a single image reflects.

Mary Beth Koeth was born on June 2nd, 1982 in Ohio.
She’s the youngest of five kids whose names all begin with M…she’s still not sure why her parents, Mike and Marlene, thought that was a good idea.
Her parents moved to Texas when she was one, and she quickly embraced the Texas uniform: cowboy boots and a slight food stain on the lower bottom corner of her shirt.
She survived Catholic elementary and grade school despite the fact that she told a priest during confession that she had robbed a bank.
Koeth went to an all-girls college prep where she spent the majority of her time in the darkroom sniffing hazardous chemicals and forgetting to shave her legs.
She was a vegetarian for eight years…then lemon chicken happened.
She spent three and a half years at Texas Tech University and a semester in Florence dreaming about hot make-out sessions in the darkroom, but came out with a Design Communication degree instead.
Armed with visions of power suits and briefcases, Mary Beth moved to Kansas City to work as a designer for Hallmark Cards.
She later moved overseas to further her greeting card design skills with Hallmark UK.
If you got a problem, yo I’ll solve it.
Hi. I’m Dan Cutrona. I am a photographer. But you know that already. I borrowed a car to shoot my first assignment at the local newspaper when I was 17, and I haven’t put a camera down since. After photographing my fair share of car accidents and crime scenes, I realized I wanted to create pretty pictures. Over the past 20+ years (don’t do the math), I have photographed almost every square inch of Cape Cod. I consider Miami my home away from home, and have worked with many clients, commercial and editorial throughout Southern Florida.
I love what I do. I love walking into a space, absorbing it, and knowing that I can capture the light and essence of it to show the world. Making a space come alive, highlighting the way the light bounces, the angles, the craftsmanship of the architecture and design proves to be endlessly fascinating. I also love capturing people in these spaces. Environmental portraits constantly challenge me to try and make a picture that is worth way more than a thousand words.
Miami-based photographer, Sonya Revell, creates imagery that emerges from her delightful daydreams of dazzling candy colors and connects closely with complex and compelling characters.
Also, she is a fan of alliteration.
While she now calls Florida home, Sonya originally hails from the great state of Kentucky (can you tell from the picture?), where she attended the same high school as Muhammad Ali.
Sonya considers eating ice cream a hobby and was once struck by lightning (indirectly, but it was still quite shocking).
While Revell still fantasizes about running off to join the circus or perhaps becoming a race car driver, the truth is, nothing tops image making.
b. 1966, San Juán, Puerto Rico

I’m Steve Boxall. I’m a commercial and editorial fashion/lifestyle photographer, specializing in children. In fact, I like to think that my images are where fashion and lifestyle meet. For me, it’s all about capturing images of a fabulous life.
After college he moved to London to start his photographic career shooting for BBC Television.
After six years of working in London for the BBC and other clients, he left his native England to travel the world on a two-year hiatus before settling in Miami Florida.

Steve has 20 years of experience working in almost every aspect of the industry, and as a father of three, he loves to photograph people but especially kids. Miami-based but always traveling, he is at home shooting studio, beach, island, zero gravity, and everything in between.
A long time ago, in a tiny Pennsylvania town far, far away, Josh Ritchie first graced the world with his presence (insert his wife’s eye roll here.) After a childhood spent skinning his knees, building forts and listening to punk rock, Josh discovered the world of photography and quickly realized that meeting new people and seeing new places was a pretty cool way to go through life. His love for the lens led him to newsrooms around the country, where Josh made a living photographing the human condition.
After months of trying to convince his fiancée that he knew what he was doing, Josh quit his staff job. He packed up his life, his lady and his pet lizard and moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to become a freelancer. It was the best decision of Josh’s career. Now he produces commercial portraits and narratives for clients such as Apple Inc., The New York Times Magazine, and Nike using his art to help these iconic companies move their band forward.
When Josh isn’t working, he can be found rocking out with his ukulele and waving his Terrible Towel as if his life depended on it — sometimes even at the same! Josh also loves telling dad jokes, much to the chagrin of his wife and two daughters.

I’m a commercial and editorial photographer based in Fort Myers, the Heart of Southwest Florida.
Specializing in portrait and lifestyle images, my background in photojournalism has helped shape the look and feel of my work.
Originally from Northern Wisconsin, I moved to the South Florida as a teenager and learned to love photography after my parents subscribed to the St. Petersburg Times (now Tampa Bay Times) newspaper. That paper was and still is an incredible publication that churns out amazing work on a daily basis and helped shape who I am today.
I worked my way through high school in the One Hour Photo Lab of a neighborhood Eckerd Drug Store, an experience that exposed me to the technical aspects of photography, and offered an opportunity to learn from the successes and mistakes of tourists and amateur photographers who would come in on a daily basis.
I went on to graduate from the University of Florida with a degree in Journalism, which offered editorial photography opportunities. I was soon working as a correspondent for wires like AP and Getty, and newspapers like USA Today and the New York Times.
In recent years I have transitioned to more commercial and corporate work, often lending the same journalistic style of photography to clients, creating a modern and realistic look for their brands.
I call Southwest Florida home, an area that includes Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples and Marco Island. Sarasota, Bradenton and Tampa / St. Petersburg are a short easy cruise up I-75 from here. We are also a quick and fun road trip across the state to East Coast cities like West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami. I also regularly get to Orlando which is a beautiful drive up through the orange groves in the middle of the state.
Some like to take the easy road, others prefer the path less travelled. I am a fan of the latter – I thrive on challenge, detail, and problem solving. It’s that passion that makes me crave the right shot, right set, and most mouth-watering styling. Food photography is not a simple path from idea to execution – it’s an exploration and often a collaboration. When I first began to explore this type of work I knew it would make for an epic creative journey from my first attempts at lighting, to the way I continue to push myself creatively today. I am always exploring and I don’t think I’ll ever stop learning.
When I’m not in the kitchen or the studio you’ll find me happily collecting my share of sand and dirt out on the mountain bike trails in Central Florida. To me there is no better feeling than the rush you get from a job well done…except maybe the rush of rolling along a beautifully flowing trail with some happy jumps and berms in a beautiful wooded setting.
A Charleston, SC native turned Florida girl. Life is about slowing down, loving people, and laughing loud enough your neighbors recognize you from the next aisle at the grocery store.
A full time photographer since 2008, I got my start photographing life and people, but have unexpectedly fallen in love with photographing food along the way.

A product of two blue collar families from western Maryland, it seemed pretty likely that I was not going to escape a little hard work. Growing up outside Washington, DC, much of life was spent outdoors. Lucky for me, I had a Dad that practically lived outdoors, following him out the door to find something worth pursuing, building or taking apart was not a problem.
In middle school, I began to draw and nature became my subject. Sometime late in high school, my interest gradually turned to photography. Full of enthusiasm, uncertainty and encouragement from my teachers, I headed to college to become a graphic designer. Two years into my graphic design education, I switched to photography and graduated with a BFA in Photography from the University of Maryland, I soon found myself in Florida where I’ve been shooting on my own since 1992.
Looking through a viewfinder has always been a way to quiet the noise in my head and given the choice between an aisle seat and a window, I will always choose the window.
My passion for all things culinary drives my love of crafting stories and images for food and beverage brands. On location or in the studio, with a large crew, or just myself with a chef, I enjoy collaborating with brand managers, art directors or directly with clients to bring their vision to the screen or print.
When someone asks what I do I tell them I’m a photographer. The next question inevitably is "what kind of photographer?" Well, that’s a little tricky because I love shooting everything. It could be a national advertising campaign on location for Marriott Hotels in Mexico or shooting food in my full service 3000 sq. ft. studio for Publix or Boar’s Head. Also, It might be filming a TV spot in the Dominican Republic for Iberostar Hotels and lets not forget the family who I like to shoot while I’m on vacation. So you might say it doesn’t matter if it’s real people, talent, stills or video, personal or for hire. I love capturing the moment that I’m in. Of course, none of this can be done without working with the best people in the industry: Talent agencies, producers, assistants, wardrobe, hair & makeup, food-stylists, prop masters, retouchers and editors. I know, I sound like a jack of all trades but I love it all. So I invite you to take a look at the work and decide which side of my business is best for a project we can work on together.
