Miami’s beaches

CreativeMornings/Miami Beach

Where is the beach?

… is probably the first question my friends ask, when they come to visit Miami. I think they picture us suntanning all day long. Honestly though, the only time you’ll find me on the beach is when I’m creating photographs for my clients.

Enter Jytte. Although I didn’t meet her on the beach, we did end up on one photographing for Armpocket. Jytte is not from Florida originally, but she now runs a small business in South Florida, which makes an armband, that protects your phone, keys, cash, … while you go about your active lifestyle.

(This week I get to take over CreativeMornings/Miami’s tumblr blog. I’ll share some of my favorite places and people, who make Miami an awesome place to live. Check it out. Read the rest of this post on tumblr)

The Blogger Union has partnered with CreativeMornings/Miami for a collaborative storytelling marathon. Tune in to read the story of our city told by local creatives, bloggers and entrepreneurs. Each week, a different member of CreativeMornings will take over to post what inspires them about South Florida.

If you’ve never gone to a CreativeMornings talk, you really should go, I hear the speaker in March will be interesting – but you didn’t hear it from me…

2 speakers – one screening

March’s Creative Mornings will be different (i.E. better) than usual, since there will be two speakers talking about ‘change’ and you get to hear both! On top of a delicious breakfast, a gorgeous location–yes you’ll be able to hang out at Vizcaya for free for the rest of the day–we’re going to be screening “On Wings of Hope” after the event wraps up.

Announcing the second Move2Motion workshop

Video class for photographers I’m excited to announce, that I’ll be teaching a second Move2Motion workshop for photographers on October 17, 2015 as part of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) educational event called: Super 1 Day

Video is becoming more and more prevalent online and you’re clients are looking to share the products and services of their businesses and personal events with their clients and friends in motion productions and no longer just stills.

Learn the basics of video for photographers

This Move2Motion workshops will give you a comprehensive foundation of video and film production. We’ll look at …

  • What makes compelling story and why you should care
  • Why audio is more important than video and how to record it
  • How great visuals can make your story shine and why video is not like shooting stills
  • Why you should edit your own footage and some basic tips on how to make it all work together

Who’s teaching me this course?

Pascal Depuhl video workshop with PPAPascal Depuhl is a photographer who’s added cinematography to his repertoire a few years ago.

He teaches a workshop series called Move2Motion, designed for professional photographers, who want to add video and motion capabilities to the services they offer to their clients. Pascal has taught about video at WordCamp Miami and local universities. He’s given a TEDx talk based on the short documentary he filmed in Afghanistan and spoken about video at a few online conferences.

Pascal’s short films have won international marketing and photo industry awards, they’ve been screened in film festivals and National Geographic, the BBC and PBS have bought his footage. Pascal has also helped Philip Bloom, Nino Leitner and others teach at their Filmmaking workshops.

If you haven’t made the switch to adding motion to your photography yet, don’t worry. He’s been in your shoes and remembers what it felt like, when he dipped his toe into video.

CreativeMornings Miami: We’re great at humility!

In today’s world of Social Media, where everyone is clamoring for anyone’s attention, it seems counter intuitive to talk about humility. April’s CreativeMornings Miami (@miami_cm1) talk featured the 4 people behind The New Tropic (@NewTropicMiami) and the lessons they’ve learned about being humble – most of which come from Han Solo.

If you missed this months breakfast–lecture meeting we’ve got the video after the jump – the event was packed at the brand new “MADE at the citadel” (@MADELittleHaiti), where a full house of young Miami Creatives networked, enjoyed breakfast –Thanks to KIND bars (@KINDSnacks) – my favorite granola bars and Lemon City Teas (@LemonCityTeas) for their refreshing tea– and learned what it means to stay humble (kind of).
