Miami Advertising/Commercial photographer Jorge Parra relaunches the Synthetic Habitat Project: Architecture, Interior Design and Lighting Design Photography for the Leisure and Luxury Markets.

During the last 8 years, Advertising Photographer Jorge Parra has been working on a series of photographic projects in Architecture and Interior Design, mostly focused on the Leisure and Luxury markets, shooting Hotels, Spas, Restaurants, as well as private residences and vacation villas.

Jorge is well known as a People Photographer, shooting Advertising, Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle Photography for over 2 decades. However, a number of  Creative Directors as well as Architects and Designers who recognize and value Jorge’s vision, have been pushing him out of his comfort zone, by inviting him to shoot architectural and interior design projects. The logic behind these requests was the interest of these creatives in exploring different approaches to producing and photographing these projects from a fresh perspective.

In addition to these challenges, Jorge has been traveling around the world, shooting some large-scale fantastic Lighting Design Projects for public spaces in distant cities like Ankara in Turkey, Dublin in Ireland and Madrid, Spain. New projects are being produced in the USA and will be showcased in the near future. Lighting Design Photography is an area where only a few photographers have been successfully involved.

The resulting body of work includes visuals for Conde Nast Traveler, Luxe Magazine, Hilton Hotels, SLS Hotels, Mandarin Hotels, Ritz Carlton Hotels, plus several  travel and luxury commercial and private residential projects, plus the cool lighting design projects.

Please, visit Jorge’s Synthetic Habitat Project and feel free to drop a comment.

The next natural phase for The Synthetic Habitat Project involves a fine blend of Fashion and Architecture, both Stills and Motion, putting together all of Jorge’s  skills, in an ongoing series of images to be published in the near future.
Cheers!!

The Un-Boring shoots Phillipe Starck’s latest South Beach project

 Phillipe Starck hits South Beach again!
One thing I love about my work has to do with swapping subject matters. Jumping from Advertising to Editorial, then to personal work on the Nude, or some contribution with a non profit children’s group and then back into editorial, brings out an eerie state of mind, and makes my life the story of  the un-boring. Bored is a concept the escapes my understanding.
As much as I grew and developed my  passion for photography while shooting people, basically the most beautiful models, the input from some creative directors, asking me to shoot out of my comfort zone, starting with places and spaces in my travels, eventually led me to architecture, interior design and lighting design photography, which  are now part of my portfolio.
And one thing leads to another: Just last week, I got one of those calls we love to receive: Conde Nast Americas wanted me to shoot  a full editorial about the classic art-deco Ritz Plaza hotel, now turned into the ultra modern, Phillipe Starck’s-redesigned “SLS”, the very latest addition to the South Beach hotel scene. 
The images will publish in Spain and other european countries.
It was a very hot July day when the production started. Portraits  of the super famous  and ultra meticulous spanish cook, Jose Andres, who defines everything edible in the hotel, from the juices, to the cocktails to every snack and meal, it all goes supervised by him, plus their  well respected japanese Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi were included, all mixed up with the activity of tourists enjoying vacation time, the pools, beaches and rounding up with night shots of the warm and welcoming spaces of so many restaurants, I just lost count.
It was rather unusual to spend so many hours shooting editorial work, but as I see it, it is the only way to get the best out of yourself, specially in hot days, when your imagination may dehydrate as much as your body.
Yet another way to stay un-boringly happy! 
Cheers!!
