New York City.It’s impossible to say those words without conjuring up dreams of Broadway, fashion, and a thriving ever-changing metropolis. It’s no surprise that NYC is a videographer’s paradise. Everywhere I look, I see opportunities to capture dynamic shots full of vibrant color — shots that seem to sing.
As a professional videographer, I’m always on the hunt for luxury travel video opportunities. But what does “luxury” really mean? I imagine a lot us think of plushy beds, room service, massages, and lobster dinners.
Miami is a city of contradictions. While it’s home to a ton of upscale shopping, restaurants, and clubs, it also houses a diverse community with a strong work ethic. Overlaying all of it is tropical weather, access to stunning beaches, and a thriving nightlife. Because of its unique population and its incredible location in south Florida, it offers a wide variety of shots for the luxury travel video industry.
And when it comes to branded luxury video, context is important. We’re bombarded by so many meaningless messages — having a fully-formed message sticks in the viewers’ brain and creates a need for action.
Starting with the Mavic Pro (My Go To for travel) I took up on the “grassy knoll” that sits overlooking the whole area. I have to say, I liked the birds eye view from there and had a lot of control over directions as well as my return to home. Lots to see and the Ritz Carlton kinda gives it some shimmer in that area.
