This month's featured photographer is: Humberto Vidal
Humberto, working in the airline industry for 15 years, managed to globetrot his way through the world living in exciting cities such as Madrid, Munich, Nice, Paris, London, Copenhagen, New York, Bogota, Santiago and Rio before getting his B.S. degree in photography from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in 2009 where he also earned an honorable mention from Photography Forum Magazine as the Emerging Photographer of the year. During the portfolio review of his work, he received several proposals to exhibit his work at local galleries.
Since then, he has exhibited in several galleries focusing his work on the female athletic body, using models from the fitness world. Among other exhibitions, he did “The Body” at the Gato Gallery in the Barry University and most recently “Erotika” at the Art and Design Gallery in the Miami Design District. Currently, he gives lectures in Fashion Styling at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, and he is invited constantly to work at the Nova Museum of Art and Boca Raton Museum.
Currently he spends his year between New York, Madrid, Miami and other cities, working as a full time Fashion and Fine Art Photographer, collaborating with clients like the Miami Heat, Chloe and Carolina Herrera. He is also Test shooter for major fashion agencies in Miami and NY and official photographer for several local and national fashion and fitness events.
During his trips he tries also to shoot inspired in his other great passion: Architecture. Between shows or assignments, he spends his time shooting architecture, land and cityscapes, and here is part from his work.

New York – Pod Hotel: Continuing with the Pod Concept, this picture was taken from the roof top of the Pod Hotel in Mid-Manhattan.
New York – Times Square: The tricky part of this picture was not to use a tripod on the street in the middle of Times Square and to not get hit by the people.
Street Mt. St. Michelle: In a place where there are hundreds of thousands of tourists, I wasn’t sure how to shoot with no one in the picture? Very easy, I got it: Night from Sunday to Monday at 3:00 a.m.
Mount St. Michelle from the Normandy plains.
Asheville workshop: While walking on the streets of Asheville, the doors of this workshop where open with nobody inside.
Blue Mountains: these mountains are really blue! I just couldn’t resist.
San Francisco Bay: the challenge that I always impose myself, is how to shoot well known places in a way that nobody has done in the past. Well, this is my interpretation of the San Francisco skyline.
Deerfield Beach Pier: I took this picture before doing a 5 Mile Road Race. It was not the idea, but the ocean and the light were perfect. I “raced” to the car, took the camera, tripod and...
