Kathryn Moore, the Executive Director of the South Florida Bike Coalition . The first time was at the Wynwood by bike Graffiti Art Tour and the second time was at the Hands Across the Sands event on the beach. At both occasions, I was impressed with Kathryn’s flowing enthusiasm for her cause: promoting bike advocacy in South Florida. As a portrait photographer I come into contact with many people in both public and prominent positions but I rarely meet someone with such zeal, energy and optimism. So struck by this that I asked Kathryn if she would pose for a portrait and she agreed. Only later did I learn that Kathryn is the Association of Pedestrian & Bicycle Professionals Young Professional of the Year, a Miami Today “Best of Miami” Award winner and the internationally renowned founding coordinator of the Southeast USA’s only ciclovia, Bike Miami Days.

One of my on going projects is doing portraits of “Interesting, Accomplished & Prominent People” and some of these portraits find their way into one of my exhibits.
Photographing Kathryn was a joy and she was a great sport because we had to do a number of “takes” to get the shot done right. Panning shots, like this one, can be tricky because the photographer has to move the camera at the exact same speed as the subject and I asked Kathryn to bike as fast as possible. Kathryn and I scouted locations for the background because I wanted something colorful and she wanted something urban: where she lives and works. The graffiti art wall we used is located in Miami’s Wynwood District.
