Miami Visual Collective is a powerhouse cooperative of talent, drive and dedication to the visual arts. A group of highly specialized image makers, they produce both still and video for advertising, editorial, documentary, and fine art projects. Just as Miami is the city of the future — a bustling, multicultural, white-hot art haven that always manages to make the news — the Miami Visual Collective represents an eclectic, diverse, creative pool for today's rapidly changing image industry.

This multi-lingual team of like-minded professionals has shot on six continents—their work has a world visual sense and global reach. They bring together talents photographing portraiture and fashion, food and beverage, action and automotive, aerial and underwater, studio and location, with both digital capture and motion.

Their bond was forged over many years. Realizing the synergy that existed, this group of independent photographers came together when they saw the value in collaboration was greater than its individual parts. The group is about inspiration, support, and creative camaraderie.

Miami Visual Collective launched with a photography exhibit “Works in Progress” at the Jorge Hulian Gallery in South Miami showcasing the scope of the group’s work and diversity of their talents. It was just a hint of things to come.

While Miami-based, its members roam the world and are always ready to shoot your next assignment.
