Miami-based photographer Nick Garcia was appointed to shoot the luxury-lifestyle images for the newly renovated Colonnade Hotel in Miami’s Historic Coral Gables neighborhood. As one of the newest additions to Starwood Hotel & Resorts Worldwide’s Tribute Portfolio, the property needed to develop a gallery of images that were fashionable, evocative and reflected the exquisite and utmost sense of elegance and harmony achieved with the $18M renovation.
Trusted for his sensitivity for portraiture work, photographer Nick Garcia traveled to three remote areas in Brazil to capture Citi’s involvement with sustainable development projects. During the 3-week assignment Nick worked with Ogilvy Brazil’s creative and production teams, photographing the hopeful images of Citi’s progress-making clients and local residents. “Nick’s versatility made him a great choice for telling our stories in Brazil, which required an eclectic mix of portraits, landscapes, and a bit of photojournalism as well,” said Citi’s production consultant, Roy Schecter. “His photographic skill matched his ability to work in close harmony with our ad agency’s art director and to blend in effortlessly with everyone on the team. These are extra-valuable qualities when you’re working under sometimes stressful conditions in an unfamiliar part of the world. And Nick’s feeling for people and places is evident in the final product.”
Born and raised in Barranquilla, Colombia, lifestyle, portrait and fashion photographer Nick Garcia has been surrounded by photography, cameras, lenses and a sensitivity to art his whole life. He began his training with his father, renowned Colombian photographer Enrique Garcia. Garcia, based in Miami with his BlindLight Studio, has become a favorite among editors and creatives for his ability to understand the intricacies of powerful images. His passion for both architecture and fashion give him a signature edge for image composition.
