Racked Miami

Kazilla

Kazilla is as bold and bright in person as walls she paints. I had a blast shooting the rainbow visionary with her new tiger piece at ALOFT in Brickell.

"Kazilla's multicultural misses and untamable wild things jump at their viewer thanks to her signature stark and occasionally tribal-like lines blending with bright, saturated colors. Her muses are often sexy, psychedelic, or carefree; they merge Miami's tropical touches with her New Mexican upbringing." Check out her full feature at Racked Miami.

Didrok

I had the privilege of photographing Didi in front of a couple murals she was finishing for different Art Basel projects around the city. This year female artists got a lot of attention for Miami Art Week, which is really exciting.

"Diana 'Didi' Contreras is known around Miami for painting intoxicatingly vibrant portraits of diverse women and for unapologetically depicting feminine symbols with strength and confidence." Check out her full feature at Racked Miami.

Lance Burns

I met up with Lance at his gym in West Kendall - a cinderblock, warehouse garage with no A/C - to shoot his feature for Hottest Trainer in Miami. Lance recently tore a muscle in his arm which is keeping him from his usual workout regimen (he claims he isn't in "peak physical condition") but he looked great warming up and running through some of his stretches and exercises for me. We had limited time to shoot but we still got to talk - he's a cool guy, a hard, dedicated worker, and not too bad in front of the camera. Check out his full write-up for Racked Miami.
