I shot these a long time ago, by that I mean about 2 years ago. Ocean Dr. is such an icon. This place is full of life, tourists and locals alike and any day of the week this place is jammed packed.
There are so many photos of this place from people all over the world, including some of mine. This time I wanted to get something different, something nobody has ever seen before. Thats when I shot these. They have become very popular and I love when people ask about these images.
This is one of the coolest paces to check out in Havana. It’s a really cool old hotel but not only that, there is a really cool bar on the roof complete with live music and really cheap beer.
Now if you look at this picture close this is not the actual hotel, it is only the sign, this is the building next to it, but you get the idea.
I really liked it here, the roof top overlooks the Parque Central and it is amazing.
Nothing beats live music, cold beer, and an amazing view specially in Havana.
This is the Shelborne Hotel in Miami beach. I was actually going to shoot the sunrise when I saw this out of the corner of my eye. I quickly stopped and jumped out to take this photo. It is very vintage looking, it almost feels like it was taken back in the day. That’s what I love about Miami Beach, no matter what time of day it is you can find some amazing and beautiful things to photograph.

Las Vegas Nevada, aka sin city, if you have never been there you have to put it in your bucket list. I have been there quite a few times and it’s always a crazy time. This particular trip I wanted to get a really good shot of the strip. So I booked a room at the Cosmopolitan. They have incredible views. You just have to ask them to put you on the highest floor facing the Bellagio. You will have one of the best views in all of Las Vegas and an incredible room.
Las Vegas Nevada
I stayed here for 2 nights and the first night we had an incredible sunset. No to mention the water show below is spectacular. I want to go back and book different rooms throughout to get different shots of the strip. I also want to rent a helicopter and get some aerial shots. That’s on my future plans for sin city. This time I want to spend more time checking out the incredible entertainment this place has.
The City of Hamburg Germany
My visit to Germany was very short lived. Even though I only spent a couple days there it gave me a taste of Germany, a really good one.
The City of Hamburg is full of life surrounded by incredible architecture, the streets are elegant and the people are amazing. The weather was rainy and cold but everything else made up for it, the weather didn’t bother me at all. I was in awe of what I always had imagined to be completely different, I suppose I just had no idea.
I left with a bit of a broken heart because I really wanted to get to know the place more. This isn’t the last I see of Germany, I will be back and it won’t be a short stay.
I shot this in a place called Speicherstadt in the middle of the rain, the conditions weren’t ideal but I made it work.

I stayed at this incredible hotel, Barceló Hamburg. The check in was a breeze and the place was perfect, in the middle of everything, a short walk to the harbor and the train station making it easy to get around.
My room was perfect, I felt right at home. After traveling for a couple days it made it very easy for me to get some rest before heading out to explore the streets of Hamburg.
Needless to say the wine bar was quite nice. It had an incredible selection making it perfect to wrap up a long day of travels and shooting in the rain.
A special thanks to Barcelo Hamburg for making my stay so pleasant. I will definitively be coming back.
