    About the Teacher:

    Born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1956 to Spanish parents, KIKO RICOTE has always loved adventure. At 17, he and a friend traveled throughout Latin America in a VW van with two surfboards and a guitar. After a year, he returned to Venezuela and landed work as a model, eventually making it to Europe. He found work in Milan’s fashion world, then in Zurich he picked up a camera for the first time. When a Swiss talent agency hired him to photograph emerging models, his second career was born. For 20 years, he worked as both model and photographer, spending time in Amsterdam, Zurich, Munich, Sydney, Los Angeles and Mexico City. In Los Angeles, he hosted the Hispanic TV version of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, called Fama & Fortuna, and traveled the world for three more years before making Miami his family’s home in 1995.

    Physical activity has played an important role in his life since childhood, and he shares triathlons, swimming, biking, and running with his wife and three daughters on Key Biscayne. This regimen of fun under the sun is a source of inspiration for his job as a parent and as a creative professional.

    He is the author/photographer of two books, Key Biscayne Island Paradise, published in 2010 and more recently, Miami: Visually Speaking. “This book is my love letter to Miami,” he explains. “The city and surrounding areas contain immense visual richness that I take pleasure in sharing with others.” Text is nonexistent in this wittily-organized collection of photographs that reveal the many facets of Miami’s natural and built environments as they appeared at the close of 2011.

    Whether you’re interested in flowers, birds, travel photography, landscapes, or simply knowing how to get a good photo of your family, you’ll get tips and advice that will help you improve your shots the next time you have a camera in your hands.
