Epic sunrise by the rocks

Epic sunrise by the rocks

This one is from Saturday morning from one of my Sunrise Workshops. The sunrise was epic, and the sky was on fire. The rocks were starting to get covered with water as the tide was rising quickly. I managed to get my camera completely drenched, and then tipped it over after to finish off the morning. Luckily nothing happened to it. I brought it home, cleaned it up and it is good to go.

Miami Beach iconic lifeguard towers

Miami Beach iconic lifeguard towers

Miami Beach iconic lifeguard towers:

Good morning people, I have been working on this new series what seems for ever. I started this project a few months ago. I wanted to capture every lifeguard tower in Miami Beach in a different sunrise. At the beginning of the project I thought that this was going to be an easy task, let me tell you, it was anything but easy.

From the beginning of the project I wanted to capture cool sunrises with all this cool lifeguard towers, well very quickly I realized that the sunrise had to match the tower, making things a bit more complicated. Like everything I do I became a bit obsessed with this. I had to change my sleeping habits because I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss any sunrises until this project was completed. This took me a few months and I missed very few sunrises. (I can count them in one hand)

I started on 1st street and worked my way to 21st, some days the sunrises were not even worth photographing so I just sat there and enjoyed them, but that wasn’t my only problem, very quickly I realized the people where going to be a massive issue. It turns out people are attracted to things, they don’t like to just pick a spot in the sand and sit there, then need a cozy place, in observing people coming to the beach to watch the sunrise, 100% of them would congregate around this lifeguard towers not caring about me and my camera even though I was super close to it and impossible to ignore.

Tourists were not the only issue, homeless people crashing out at this places or underneath them where a bit of an issue also, lots of the time they would get up to use the bathroom (the sand) in the middle of my shot. No problem, I finally completed this and have hundreds of photos of this towers.

This is the coolest project I have completed to date. I have such a personal connection to this not only because I love this place but because I truly feel the sun to be something spiritual, and watching it rise for so many days in a row, well it was something really special. I got to see some amazing sunrises, met some amazing people, observed human behavior and learned a lot from it all.

Here is my final project, I hope you like the photos. (I have lots of different ones from this same locations that I will publish later, I feel this are the best ones) Here they are in order from 1st street to 21st street coming to you from Miami Beach Florida.

Abandoned Miami Marine Stadium

Abandoned Miami Marine Stadium

Abandoned Miami Marine Stadium:
During the course of a month and a half visited this place to get enough footage to complete this timelapse. During that time would go into the place, sometimes I would get kicked out by the police and sometimes I would hide from them, most of the time the place was all to my self with a random visitor here and there.

This place has become a landmark here in MIami and its visited by dozens of people every day. The Marine continues to amuse anyone that walks in here, from kids to word renowned photographers and artists from around the world.
