Americas Playground. When you think of Americas playground what comes to mind? Vegas to me, however, there is a way better playground. (trust me I would know, I grew up in Nevada)
This playground is surrounded by beautiful beaches where beautiful people from all over the world flock to hang out and play. When I took this photo, that’s the first thing that came to mind. Americas playground. When I shot it, I couldn’t help but have a fat grin on my face thinking how fortunate I was to be part of this beautiful place.
About the photo: I shot this with a 600mm lens. I wanted to compress the city and the boats together to give it that classic look. I have a feeling this photo in 50 years is going to be EPIC.
I edited this photo with my Lightroom Presets, download them, and give them a try. They are the best-selling presets on the internet for 5 years in a row.

I love photography, there is no question about that. There is something about documenting the world passing you by. Change is constant and without us documenting life itself, we would forget what the past looked like. Photographers are so important in this world for that reason alone.
It is the photos from the past that make our present and our future that much better.
As simple as this lifeguard tower might seem to someone, it is part of my history, and one day 30-40 years from now, I will look at this photos and remember how different times were.
I hate to talk about politics, but this is the most important election of our lives. I beg every American to vote, we have a lunatic on the ballot and he must be stopped. I shot this to show that America is very much great and the American dream is very much alive.
About the picture. This is a long exposure shot with a 10 stop ND Filter. I have also included a video of the edit.
This is the Miami troop. I have been scoping this place out for a while but I needed some people to complete the shot. Last night we went out to get some South Beach night shots, what better people to have in this photo than 4 great photographers.
