About Jorge Parra

Strategic Vision, Artistry and Versatility, combined with Business Savvy, are just a few of the traits that put Miami based (but globally available) Photographer and Director Jorge Parra at the top of his field. "As a visual creator, I empower my passion for images to develop visually challenging projects. My best work blurs the line between personal and commercial images, to produce targeted visual messages that range from the seemingly fancy and mundane to the conceptual". “Vision is what glues all of my work together. Most Commercial/Advertising photographers tend to specialize in and, get recognition for, their expertise in one visual specialty, while others, like myself, enjoy the challenge of working across a host of seemingly unrelated fields. Adaptability and versatility have defined my personal approach to photography since early on – both with stills and motion."

Miami Advertising Photographer Jorge Parra launches the NEW Synthetic Habitat Website: Architecture, Interior Design and Lighting Design Photography for the Leisure and Luxury Markets.

ARCH-PROMO_NOV2015_
Advertising Photographer Jorge Parra  is well known as a People Photographer, shooting Advertising, Fashion, Beauty and Portrait Photography for over 2 decades.
However, a number of  Creative Directors as well as Architects and Designers who recognize and value Jorge’s vision, have been pushing him out of his comfort zone, by inviting him to shoot architectural and interior design projects. The logic behind these requests was the interest of these creatives in exploring different approaches to producing and photographing these projects from a fresh perspective.
For this reason, Jorge has been working on a series of photographic projects in Architecture and Interior Design, mostly focused on the Leisure and Luxury markets, shooting Hotels, Spas, Restaurants, as well as private residences and vacation villas.

In addition to these visual challenges, Jorge has been traveling around the world, shooting some large-scale fantastic Lighting Design Projects for public spaces in distant cities like Ankara in Turkey, Dublin in Ireland and Madrid, Spain, and the most recent project was shot in Washing DC, here in the USA. Lighting Design Photography is an area where only a few photographers have been successfully involved.

The resulting body of work includes visuals for Conde Nast Traveler, Luxe Magazine, Hilton Hotels, SLS Hotels, Mandarin Hotels, Ritz Carlton Hotels, plus several  travel and luxury commercial and private residential projects, plus the cool lighting design projects.

Please, visit Jorge’s  totally new website for  the Synthetic Habitat Project and feel free to make contact to discus you upcoming visual needs in these fields.

Jorge ‘s next and natural phase for The Synthetic Habitat Project involve a fine mixing and blend of his favorite visual themes:  Fashion and Architecture,  putting together all his skills, in an ongoing series of images to be published soon!
Cheers!!
