Interior Architectural Photography – Miami Shoot

The new year has brought with it some wonderful new opportunities, but this recent job is a collaboration with a client with whom I have worked for many years.  This stunning interior design job yielded 20 photographs and I have selected just a few for sharing because they feature some amazing paintings as well as sculptural art.  It is always an honor for me to work with prestigious clientele.  The most satisfying challenge as an architectural photographer is exploring the relationship between photography and design.  This clean, contemporary interior was complemented by bold and colorful artwork as some of the below photographs illustrate.

Grossman Photography – Interior Design Photography for Top Florida Design Firm.

We recently completed shooting a gorgeous apartment in Fort Lauderdale.  This was a very contemporary design by one of South Florida’s most prestigious design firms.  Our photographic approach was to keep it dramatic while maintaining synergy with the clean design.  It has always been my goal to tell my client’s story with my work.  It is incredibly important for my own visual signature to be present within each image, but I feel it is perhaps more essential that my client’s signature style be seen, front and center.  Therefore, when approaching an assignment, I feel it is necessary for me to really have a good sense of what it is my client is saying with his or her own work, and that the design be the absolute focus of the photography.

Youtube. It’s not just for singers anymore.

After many years as a filmmaker, videographer and cinematographer, I have recently thought it both strategic professionally and satisfying artistically to begin documenting my photographic assignments with motion pictures.  Youtube is something with which I am extremely familiar.  As a very proud dad, I have posted video after video of my children, Holland and Adrian.  These two have kept me extraordinarily busy over the years, and it has been with great pleasure that I shared clips of their musical performances.

Here’s a great example of a collaborative effort between us.  That’s my son on the bass, and my daughter singing the blues:

                                               

It was a very hot and steamy south florida evening, and the stage was set.  That wonderful jazz quartet backing her up are my son and his talented friends.  Those five performers have a total of no less than 60 years performing between them if you can believe it!  My girl, Holland, is studying musical theatre at the prestigious University of Michigan.  GO BLUE!  My son is currently on a quest to improve the world at MIT.  GO ENGINEERS!

We shot this movie in less than one hour and had an amazing time.  Incorporating the Canon 5D Mark II, we set up a handful of my old Mole Richardson tungsten lighting instruments in a dark jazz club in Fort Lauderdale.  The dichotomy of these young musicians in this old club just seemed to fit a black and white look and the Canon handled it marvelously.  I have been so incredibly impressed, as a cinematographer educated and trained shooting film, with just how clean and beautiful this format is.  It is with the Canon 5D Mark II that I have been shooting various motion picture projects and the format seems a perfect fit for internet broadcast.

As one can clearly see, I have very strong justification for my tendency to focus most of my energies on my children, on Youtube and elsewhere!  Alas, it seemed more than strategic and satisfying to put myself and my photography up on the small screen to share my work with the internet community.  So, for now, I simply have portfolio montages uploaded for all who are interested in the work we do on a day in and day out basis.  Forthcoming, I promise, several unique incarnations of sight and sound which will highlight a behind the scenes look at our work, our shooting methods, and how I create my architectural photography.
