In this post I have a few outtake images from an editorial photoset I shot on Miami Beach.
The brilliant colors of Brazil – yellow, green, blue – are a great contrast for the iconic beaches and deco scenes on cool South Beach.
I spend quite a bit of time in Brasil, mostly in Rio de Janeiro – and the comparisons between South Beach and the beaches of Rio are striking. Miami is smaller than Rio – but both cities are dominated by the culture of the beach.

These images are outtakes from an editorial photoset we shot on Miami-South Beach. Our brief was to shoot on the beach in a more stylized style.
How to achieve more fashion than glam with the über sexy Victoria’s Secret discovery and now Elite model Courtney O’Connor put my production team to the test.
Shooting swim and resort wear on the rocks is definitely not comfortable for the model, but the backdrop offers a nice contrast and change from the usual here in South Beach.
See more outtakes after the jump, all safe for work.

So, I got a call from Italy asking to set up a session for me to photograph Italian model, actress (La Pupa e il Secchione), and two-time Playboy centerfold (in the Italia and Singapore editions) Francesca Lukasik. It did not take very much deliberation to decide to make some time for this. Francesca comes from nearby Venice in the Veneto region of Italy, and is very well known in the country not only for her glamour modeling and television work but also for her passionate support of Italian football (soccer) – in particular the AC Milano club, but also her endorsements by companies such as Ducati (motorbikes).

I had to shoot an editorial photoset and chose this beach in Miami as the location. It was used extensively in the film “Wild Things”, and seems to have such grand and masculine vistas to the horizon that I thought it was appropriate for this photoset. The model, Christian Vranas, came over from Greece for the shoot.
