Photographer Spotlight:
Tony Firpi:
In Focus

Written By: Katie Boyer of (Editor of Autotrader Classics car magazines)
         
    Jose Antonio Firpi of Devious Elements Photography, nick named Tony operates in two speeds: a mellow idle and a pedal-to-the-metal fast forward. Working the crowd, he alternates from a laid-back stroll to a frenetic ball of energy in a heartbeat, not only matching the energy of the crowd but directing it. He is not content to simply record a scene – he makes it happen.
    Born in Brooklyn, New York, Tony moved to Miami at the age of five, and the flavors of the city permeate his work. He is visibly influenced by the sights and sounds of Miami, the bright colors and the distinctly Miamian schizophrenia of urban grit and spirited beach party.
    His day job as a graphic designer  and photographer at AutoTrader Classics puts him in contact with a bevy of top-notch classic cars, but Tony’s true passion is much more alive. He is at his happiest surrounded by a crowd, networking and meeting new people. And there are always new people!
    Since moving to the Tampa area about four years ago, Tony has quickly made himself a fixture in the local scene. He is as much in his element as the life of the party as he is behind the lens. For him, work and play are one and the same – a common feature among those who live and breathe their art. A Friday night might see him out on the town, sharing a drink with friends (both those he already knew and the ones he makes that night), or it may see him sitting at his computer at home, happily working away in Photoshop until the sun comes up.
    While Tony is always on the lookout for new models, his approach is far from all-business.  His subjects become his friends, creating a comfort level that comes through in the images. As he describes it, his shoots are “more like a get-together than a serious photo shoot.” Models are often captured in movement, not posed, bringing a humanity to the images that he enhances with a variety of unique post-production techniques. He cites David LaChapelle and Annie Leibovitz as his inspirations, which is reflected in his work. Tony’s images display hints of LaChapelle’s vibrancy, but his connection with the models comes through in his ability to show what is real, rather than the surreal. 
    So what’s next for Tony? No doubt, he’ll be found around town, finding new subjects and shaping the local scene. Tampa’s fashion scene may be in its formative stage, but all the better for Tony to make his mark. If you see him out and about, go say hi – he’ll be the one in the middle of the crowd. http://www.flickr.com/photos/deviouselements/

Thanks for stopping by and i hope you enjoy.....My name is Tony Firpi and I am a photographer/graphic designer from Miami, FL. I've been doing photography for about 6 years now. I am self-taught and am always learning new tricks. 

My photography is vivid, original, creative and candid. I don't pose my models. I like to bring out the natural beauty and motions that people already have. I capture moments, not predetermined poses. Also, my touch-up technique is original, not your typical style. Mine is unique and personalized to my style. I like my pictures to have a certain look: the people, their skin, shadows, light intensity and a story in a non-traditional way. I always enjoy shooting and the models that I shoot with always have fun, you can ask them yourself. If you shoot with me then you will have an essential part of your portfolio. There is only one D.E.

I am not doing any TF* shoots at this time. I offer reduced rates for MM models. If you want to develop a strong book you need to designate a realistic budget. My rates vary from $95 for a small one look shoot, to $400+ for multiple looks. Retouches are also included in my work. I'm happy to discuss various options with seriously interested people. I take pride in my work regardless of the arrangement and expect the same dedication of those who work with me. If you are interested in hiring me, please send me a message. Please people, I am very busy so if your serious about shooting then book a day, I don't like wasting my time. 

I AM A PROFESSIONAL, THEREFORE I ACT ACCORDINGLY. THOSE WHO ARE A NO SHOW WILL FOREVER BE PUT ON MY SHIT LIST AND I WILL NEVER WORK WITH YOU AGAIN, NOR WILL I GIVE YOU A (GOOD) RECOMMENDATION SHOULD ANYONE ASK. I DON'T LIKE WASTING MY TIME.

I am currently working full-time at Auto Trader Classics Magazines as a designer and photographer. I love my job and enjoy going to work to do what I love. I just started shooting cars, and I have taken a great interest in it. My passion is shooting portraits. I love taking pictures of people.

I currently shoot and design the layouts for these car magazines. You can get them at any gas station, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Target or any supermarket, and you can get them in any state....

I also do a lot of post-production work to all of my images. Even my basic touch-up work is very advanced. You will love the way you look.

Models are not the only thing I shoot. Every panoramic you see here took more than 10 pictures to bring it together. I also do a ton of editing to them, even reflections.
