Created for Pizzarelli as part of their 40th Anniversary Campaign focusing on their fresh ingredients and dedicated preparation of each pizza pie. Lit with strobes to freeze the motion as well as an Arri Tungsten Fresnel for the warm rim.

84th Collection

100mm Zeiss working overtime for those details. Love the textured detail on the left side of the label. Elegant light pattern in the liquid achieved by just lighting the background just right.

83rd Collection

Made entirely in studio with real sand and a tv screen for the background. Palm leaves were added in post but we had them on set to create the reflections on the bottle.

83rd Collection

This is one of those shots that look really simple but took hours to set up and execute. Simple 3 light set up, but it was multiple dozens of tries in getting the pour, bottle position and hand placement all perfect in camera. And after every single try it’s clean, refill and try again. The result was absolutely worth it though.

83rd Collection

Part of a series of images used in a rebranding campaign for Pizzarelli, a beloved Dominican pizza restaurant delivering happiness to homes since 1982.

73rd Collection

This is Chef Carlos Romero part of the new upcoming wave of promising chefs in the Dominican Republic. This image is featured in Santo Domingo Times Magazine as part of an article about the new generation of cuisine in the country and the faces behind it.

69th Collection

Photography for @lugadr one of the most popular burger restaurants in the Dominican Republic. This dish takes inspiration from the famous street food recipe of the typical "chimi" as we commonly call it, and elevates it to a restaurant level. The Chimi Burger is composed of 8oz of beef topped with American cheese, bacon, and coleslaw.
