After a couple of weeks of traveling, I am finally able to share the Leu Gardens and Langford Park location shoots. Alex Babalian, Alisica Ramesar and makeup artist Samantha Singh joined myself for quite a elegant style shot at the rose gardens located at the heart of Leu Gardens. The shots came out pretty spectacular, especially experimenting with natural branches from nearby trees around the lens giving the composition a filling look. Next month i will be traveling to Los Angeles, California to shoot the famous DJ 3LAU at one his shows in Hollywood! See you all soon!
ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL has now confirmed it will hold the 15th annual edition of its gargantuan event over two three-day weekends March 15, 16 & 17 and March 22, 23 and 24, 2013 in Miami, FL. This marks the first time ever for a major electronic dance music (EDM) festival to do so anywhere.
Shrouded in secrecy for months, the team behind ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL--which last year drew over 165,000 fans—is excited to unveil this news. Russell Faibisch, Co-Founder, President and CEO of the 15-year-old event says, "After an extremely successful 2012 edition of ULTRA in Miami, and the continuous overwhelming demand by disappointed fans that were unable to attend because of the early sell-out, we've decided to do what ULTRA has always consistently done throughout the years--pioneer and push the EDM movement forward. So we are adding a second weekend of ULTRA. This is a unique concept from anything ever done before in our space, as it will be two weekends...two unique experiences. There are A LOT of incredible plans and surprises lined up for everyone attending our 15th Year Anniversary!"
Adam Russakoff, Executive Producer, Talent Buyer and Director of Business Affairs, adds, "Being the first-ever EDM leaning festival to go two weekends just supports our position as being the preeminent forward-thinking brand in electronica. Although we are already known as having the best and most relevant talent at our events, two weekends allows us to present even more and create two separate and distinct highly unique experiences for our attendees, let alone the impact this will have on the economy in terms of jobs and other ancillary industries like hotels and transportation."

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anyone could have. The important thing is to strive towards a goal which is not immediately visible. That goal is not the concern of the mind, but of the spirit. That is certainly the spirit of Francisa Luna and this shoot to prove it. Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. So do what it takes and make your dreams a reality!

Get ready for the biggest music festival of the year, CounterPoint! “It’s only about the music, man. That’s what the fuck we came to give you,” - Flying Lotus. Though many may attend this highly anticipated festival for it’s slurring bikini clad chicks and passing of freshly rolled joints, I can confidently say that it is not fair to assume that’s the whole of it. To undermine this festival is to infer that it passes by without musical influence or weight. Counter Point has the most impressive musical influence a festival has shown this year. And to presume this is turning a cheek away from what is the past, the present, and the future coming together with every drop of a bass.
CounterPoint's lineup is right on the money. Probably the most diverse and hottest names in EDM music. The multiple stage, 8,000-acre paradise filled with rolling pastures, lakes, and woodlands along the Chattahoochee River will without a doubt be one of the best locations a music festival can be held. From the legendary names of R3HAB and Run DMT-whom fetched their slightly older die hard fans and tossed them into a mess of glowing pacifiers-to dancey synth tapping bands like Porter Robinson and AVICII, to the slower and sexier hip shakers like M83, 12th Planet and Flying Lotus, and finally to the headlining fist pump inducers, body thrashing puppeteers, like Bassnectar, Skrillex, Steve Angello, Pretty Lights, and many, many more.
Hello my name is Karina Caro I am a professional model and now a pageant contender. I recently had the opportunity be a part of a pageant here in Orlando Florida called Miss Mundo Latina where with great honor was able to represent my beautiful country of Colombia. The exciting experiences that underwent while being in the pageant opened many doors for me in the sense that I was able to acquire valuable tools that I now use for my ever day life. Knowing that I didn’t bring home the crown this year, only sparks a bigger interest in me to do better next time! Although I did take home the title for “Best Body”, Next step in the pageantry world is to win the title as queen! My belief in the Holy Spirit leads me to the conclusion that everything happens for a reason, and if winning this one wasn’t in my destiny, then so be it! Different opportunities will come my way! I’d like to Thank AGP for his amazing work and time spent with me to help get my name out there! Thank you Alex! You never know who you meet so treat everyone as if they are just as important as the president; everyone deserves the same amount of respect! Thank you again,
With great wishes for AGP
