Jaramay Aréf shoots Rocky Barnes for Nicole Miller

When New York clients have a ‘La Plage’ photoshoot in mind – South Beach comes right to mind, with miles of golden sand, balmy breezes and an all-expense paid trip to the sixth borough.

May weather did not cooperate for photograher Jaramay Aréf, but nevertheless he connected beautifully with his subject during the photoshoot to deliver a bright look at the new collection on a drizzly day at South Beach EDITION Hotel.

A Great Photoshoot Model

Rocky Barnes was a great model to work with, understanding how important it was to capture beautiful images of the new resort collection, at multiple locations in and around Miami Beach.  Rain, drizzle, cloud cover and bright sun were all contributing to the challenges Jaramay faced during the client photoshoot.  “You can’t shoot it over”, says Jaramay “you need to work with what you’ve got and Rocky worked with me to achieve great results.”
