I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!

    Spectacular shot! Just so vivid, colourful, sharp, and interesting!

  • Thank you, Katya! I was thrilled that there were floodlights on a building behind me which illuminated the props… that sure helped. Glad you enjoy the image!

    Fantastic shot. I love the circles of ‘light’ off the tips of the props.

  • Thank you, Clive!
