VANESSA ROGERS

Ocean Drive - - Without Whom This Issue Would Not Have Been Possib -

Pho­tog­ra­pher Vanessa Rogers ob­tained her for­mal train­ing at New York’s Fash­ion In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy and the School of Vis­ual Arts. With a port­fo­lio that in­cludes travel, life­style, food, and fash­ion, she has pub­lished work in Time, Porter, Shape, and Women’s Wear Daily, among other pub­li­ca­tions. Rogers pho­tographed Car­los Rosso, pres­i­dent of Re­lated Group’s Con­do­minium De­vel­op­ment Divi­sion, fea­tured in “Sky High.” What was your in­spi­ra­tion for this shoot? We were for­tu­nate enough to have a great rooftop lo­ca­tion, in one of Car­los’s new­est build­ings in Brick­ell, to use as our back­drop. The views were amaz­ing in ev­ery di­rec­tion, so we used our light to cre­ate drama and con­trast be­tween our sub­ject and the sky­line look­ing south to Coral Gables. I was ea­ger to por­tray Mr. Rosso as an icon and in­no­va­tor of the in­dus­try, and us­ing dra­matic light seemed like the right choice.
