Ron Stone: Miami Man and Insurance Benefits Master

Friday, February 24th, 2012

The second March Clip to come in the mail today is from Benefits Selling Magazine.  You may ask your self what is Benefits Selling Magazine?  Well, you may not know it, but the person that helped broker and put together your employee benefits plan knows it very well.  They provide the latest news, analysis, and commentary covering every facet of the employee benefits business. And they also have a great staff and a terrific photo editor!

The subject of the photographic shoot was Ron Stone.  He is not just one of the most important figures of the benefits industry, he is also a huge Miami civic supporter.  He serves on the boards of The University of Miami, The Orange Bowl Committee and Gibraltar Bank.   He was gracious to let Joshua Prezant Photography and his band of assistants into his home and then to get on top of a roof in order to get one of the images we needed!  It was a real pleasure spending the morning photographing Ron Stone.


“The Other Miami” Washington Post Magazine Spread

Monday, February 6th, 2012

One of my favorite clients to work for is the Washington Post Magazine. I always know when the call comes in for an assignment that it will be enjoyable. This assignment did not disappoint. I was sent out to document the “Miami Bohemian ” art scene down in Miami. The images were going along with a first person account/ travel piece that writer Sandra Beasley was doing.






One Shoot, one couple, two layouts, and two publications

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Miami based photographer Joshua Prezant was recetly contracted to photograph art collectors and hoteliers Donald and Mera Rubell at their 45,000 square-foot museum and home.  The Miami art powerhouse couple are opening a new museum in Washington, DC. and we were brought in to photograph them with some of their vast art collection in the background.  The couple was great to work with and in the small window of time we had with them we were able to make an assortment of images that ended up being used by both the Miami Herald and The Washington Post.

Each paper had access to the same images and each chose different images and produced vastly different layouts.  It is great to see the different approaches that the two papers took with the picture selections and the layouts. Not sure  their is a favorite, but just happy that a bunch of teh images got used and that each publication did a great job displaying the images.

See if you have a favorite:

Gymnast Leyva Lives American dream.

Monday, September 19th, 2011

One of the best things about what I do is the fact that I get to meet amazing people from all walks of life. One recent amazing person I met and photographed was 19-year-old Danell Leyva.  He is a Miami based gymnast looking to gold at the 2012 Olympics.  That alone would have been a great story.  However, Danell’s story is much more interesting…as The Washington Post’s Amy Shipley showed in her September 14th sports front page article about Leyva and his path from a sickly boy in Cuba to a top gymnist.

The photo shoot took place at the gym where Danell trains, which is also the gym that his parents own. As I walked into the huge warehouse that housed Universal Gymnastics I was amazed to see a group of kids from 5- year-old to 17- year-old doing the most amazing things with their bodies on an assortment of gymnastic apparatices.

The assignmnet from the Washington Post called for a family portrait of Danell with his mom and stepfather. Danell parents were happy to be pulled away from their coaching duties for a few minutes for the photoshoot with Danell. Being that Danell was doing an Iron Cross, a difficult gymnatic move on the rings we had a limited amount of time to shoot while he was in position.  But Joshua Prezant Photography “stuck” the shot and everyone was happy.  I wish Danell the best of luck in making the 2012 olympics and hopefully bringing home gold for the USA.

Forbes Magazine jumps for Miami photographer Joshua Prezant

The call comes in from the Forbes Magazine photo editor that they need a high energy photo of four very young entrepreneurs that created and run Summit Series.  They are creating offbeat, successful, business conferences that have  attracted thousands of influential attendees and a star panels of billionaires, philanthropists and disruptors that would make the older, better connected organizers of Davos and Ted jealous.   As it happens I knew exactly who these guys were as I photographed them a year before for the Washington Post Magazine.  Having got to know the guy on the last shoot ( a documentary  behind the scene shoot of one of there conferences in South Beach), I knew they would be up for most anything.

My team and I began the process of scouting locations and brainstorming for ideas.  We only had about a day to plan before the shoot and a small window to photograph the guys as they were a few days away from the start of there new conference Summit at Sea.  The location became a moving target that was changing every hour because we needed to make sure we had all four people together. With this in mind we planned for everything and brought enough lighting equipment to be ready for anything and any turns in the weather that happened.  We also secured a large trampoline for one location ( where we ended up shooting). It ended up that we only had about 15 minutes to do two setups ( the primary one and then a more straight forward tight picture of the 4). All the planning paid off and we had a great shoot and the client was thrilled.

211 Help Line Commercial

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Just saw this on Tv the other day while watching the news. Every photograph in the commercial was shot by Joshua Prezant Photography for use in a variety of print campaigns.   It is great to see a creative multimedia use of all my images for this advertising campaign. The M Network gave  justice to the images and did a great job producing this short commercial.
