Florida Meeting Professionals Guide Editorial and Cover Photo Shoot

The magazine had to mean business and look professional. I directed two photo shoots with photographer Michael Heape and the magazine editor Ellen Thomas to create a business environment for the images. This was the first time I had to involve a stylist in setting up a shot. We shot two locations, first a reception next to the bay and a second location aboard a yacht. The yacht was a challenge with the rain but Michael managed to get some good interior group shots waiting for the rain to stop. We had to wipe down the upper deck on the yacht after it rained in order to get the shot in the top right spread.
