Juan Jose Reyes is an avid street photographer who helped to found the Miami Street Photography Festival held every year in December.

The MSPF© is an international photography festival  showcasing the best of contemporary Street Photography viewed through the eyes of emerging photographers in this genre.  The goal of the Festival is to establish a global platform for learning through exhibitions, workshops, lectures and other events.

​This Festival is a collaborative effort to advance the work of photographers who pay attention to everyday life in order to capture the world around us.​

Street photographers use their keen sense of observation to capture compelling candid moments in the everyday life of strangers, whether it be a gesture, facial expression, action or scene. Their method is often likened to a mirror held up to society...it reflects reality. There is no set-up involved, no manipulation of the scene and very little or no post-processing of the image. This realism has provided an accurate and insightful record of street culture throughout the world. With images portraying everything from the ugly, gritty side of life to more humorous situations, they are moments that unless captured, might otherwise go unnoticed.

At the heart of street photography is the 'decisive moment'. This is the split second when an image becomes complete in its composition - when each element of the image is in balance, in context and essential to the scene. This is when the shutter is released and the moment is captured forever.

In her exuberant and explosive pictures, Lois Greenfield captures not just the lithe and acrobatic forms of dancers performing their art, but the purity and exhilaration of movement itself. Without tricks or manipulation of any kind, she catches fleeting and impossible moments in a style that is both lyrical and graphic. Greenfield has been compared with Eadweard Muybridge for his exploration of human locomotion and with Henri Cartier-Bresson for capturing the decisive moment. Unlike her predecessors however, her images depict but don’t refer to the “real” world. They are documents of her imagination.

Beginning her career as a photojournalist, Greenfield covered the experimental dance movement scene for the Village Voice from 1973 to the mid 90’s. In 1982 she decided to open her own studio where she could control the lighting, and work with dancers in a collaborative environment.

Her exploration of the expressive possibilities of photographed movement and her unique approach to photographing the human form in motion has radically redefined the genre and influenced a generation of photographers.

Greenfield has created signature images for countless contemporary dance companies as well as commercial clients.  Her photographs have been featured in many magazines worldwide and exhibited internationally. She frequently gives lectures and offers workshops.

Since 2014 Greenfield has been an Artist in Residence at NYU/Tisch Department of Dance and New Media. In 2015, She was honored with the Dance in Focus award in recognition of her ground-breaking contributions to the field. Her third book, “Lois Greenfield:Moving Still”, (Thames & Hudson, UK & Chronicle Books, USA) will be released in Fall 2015.

 

Order Lois Greenfield’s new book, Moving Still via Amazon and help support the show.

Brian Ach is a New York-based photographer who blurs the lines between editorial and commercial photography by telling moving stories––with still pictures.

From traveling with Prince as his European tour photographer, to location and studio portraiture with top celebrities, Brian's low-key presence allows him to dissolve into the story with unparalleled access, while commercial clients appreciate his innovative problem-solving ideas, honed through his work as a leading editorial photographer with Getty Images, WireImage, and AP Images.

Equally adept behind-the-scenes, on location or in the studio, his work has been seen in Rolling Stone, People, Time, Entertainment Weekly, The NY Times, Travel and Leisure, and major newspapers and magazines around the world.

TCF Ep. 298 - Sandro Miller

Sandro has been photographing people for over thirty years. He became interested in photography at the age of sixteen upon seeing the work of Irving Penn and has since devoted his life to creating expressive images.

 

With numerous award-winning campaigns to his credit, Sandro is one of today's foremost photographers. He has photographed many national advertising campaigns for a long list of clients including: Allstate Insurance, American Express, Anheuser-Busch, BMW, Dove, Gatorade, Coca-Cola, Honda, Pepsi, Milk, Nikon, Microsoft, Miller/Coors, Motorola, Nike, Adidas, Pony, UPS, Champion, and the US Army.

 

In 2001 Sandro was invited by the Cuban government to photograph that country's greatest national treasure – its athletes. This project was the first US/Cuban collaboration since the trade embargo was imposed in 1960. Sandro's editorial work has been featured in The New Yorker, GQ, Esquire, Russian Esquire, Time, Forbes, Details, Stern, Wired, Newsweek, Vibe, Communication Arts, Graphis, New York Magazine, Eyemazing, and ESPN Magazine and has been exhibited worldwide.

 

Sandro has a working relationship with the camera giant Nikon and is responsible for introducing the latest technology to the professional photographic world. He has worked on many award-winning projects with Nikon including a portrait session with actor John Malkovich in Croatia, a series of motorcycle racing shots in Brainerd, Minnesota, a still and video shoot of the roller derby team "The Windy City Rollers", a video of the world-renowned high-wire artist Philippe Petit, and most recently, a short cinematic video entitled "Joy Ride", featuring a motorcyclist racing through the early morning streets of Chicago on a mysterious mission.

 

Throughout Sandro's career, each year he has contributed his talents to both community based and national charitable organizations by creating powerful imagery and compelling campaigns soliciting contributions for such organizations as the American Heart Association, Food Depository of Chicago, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Milwaukee, Evans Life Foundation, Arts for Life, Dance for Life, AIDS Chicago, AIDS New Jersey, and The Good City.

 

At the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in July 2011, Sandro was acknowledged with a Saatchi & Saatchi Best New Director Award for his short video "Butterflies" featuring John Malkovich.

 

For the past five years, in juried competition within the industry, Sandro has been voted one of the top 200 advertising photographers in the world.
